Tarik Cohen just had what may have been the best punt return of the season. Holy cow. Reversed about 17yrd backward, then to the house

It’s nice of the Bears to be judicious with Tarik Cohen’s role. They have so many playmakers and all.

The rookie running back entered the matchup week with 534 yards from scrimmage—262 on the ground (on four yards per carry), and 272 in the air on 35 catches, his specialty.
Tarik Cohen is an absolute freak.
