SHARE Video: Alshon Jeffery, Jay Cutler rekindle chemistry with long pass catch

The Bears offense, while consistent, hasn’t been very explosive in the early goings of the season.

The return of wideout Alshon Jeffery Sunday was also the return of Chicago’s deep-threat play.

In the second quarter of a seemingly defenseless NFC North matchup against the Bears and Lions, Chicago QB Jay Cutler scrambled out of the pocket and launched a strike towards Jeffery.

Like many times before, the duo connected on the pass after Jeffery jockeyed for position against a Detroit DB.

It didn’t go for a touchdown, but it was the type of play the Bears’ offense will need if it hopes to compete for a playoff spot.

Jeffery will have to become Cutler’s favorite target and he’ll also have to develop into a top tier wideout if the Bears hope to challenge the other rising teams in the NFC North.
