Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen

The arrival of Matt Nagy has unlocked plenty of weapons in Chicago’s offense, including running back Tarik Cohen. The explosive back showed off his skills Sunday roasting the New York Jets defense for a 70-yard touchdown.

Cohen escaped out of the backfield on a screen pass and turned upfield to find open grass. He then let his speed do the rest of the work by outracing everyone and finding the end zone for the score.

Cohen’s big-play ability continues to help him draw a bigger workload in Chicago’s offense. Plays like this will only lead to more opportunities to prove himself as a game-changing threat in the NFL.
