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.
