Zach Miller runs after making a catch on his way to a game tying touchdown

Things were looking ugly for the Bears at the start of their game against St. Louis. In the first drive of the game, the Rams marched right down the field and scored a touchdown as Todd Gurley plunged into the end zone.

The Rams weren’t even forced into a third down scenario as they used play action passing and giving the ball to Gurley to march down the field. It was only the second rushing touchdown allowed by the Bears all season.

However, things quickly turned around as the Bears found their newest secret weapon. For the second week in a row Jay Cutler found Zach Miller four an improbable touchdown.

Miller caught a dump-off pass on second and eleven, broke the first tackle and was off to the races. At 87 yards, the catch was the second longest touchdown reception in Bears history, only two yards short of the record.

Miller was the hero last week against San Diego after making a one-handed catch over the middle, scoring the go-ahead touchdown in the win.
