Smallish Chicago Bears rookie running back Tarik Cohen made a smashing NFL debut. He broke multiple tackles from a swarming Atlanta Falcons defense, proving that he’s more than capable of playing at this level.
The young Cohen already looks like a natural which sparked this hilarious comment from defensive lineman Akiem Hicks.

Cohen may be small, but he bulldozed through the Atlanta Falcons defenders, gaining 66 rushing yards on five attempts. He also racked up eight catches for 47 yards and one touchdown.
Cohen is threat to steal the thunder from second-year running back Jordan Howard moving forward on the season.
