The Chicago Bears have an impressive rookie running back tearing things up this year — Tarik Cohen, also known as the human joystick.

Cohen lived up to that nickname on Sunday with a leaping touchdown in which he was upended en route to the goal line, facilitating an aerial flip in for the score.

After the score, Cohen was understandably excited.

This marked the third touchdown of the season for this impressive rookie out of North Carolina A&T. He and Jordan Howard have been the bedrock of Chicago’s offense this year and will continue to be a dynamic duo in the coming years.
