It was hardly a dominant effort. But Roy Williams had his best game with the Bears since the season opener, catching three passes for 50 yards in the rout of the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday night.
But health may factor into his success.
“I’m all the way there. I’m back,” Williams told me. “I’m feeling good.”
That’s important, since the last time I spoke to him, he said he was inching toward 90 percent. Williams had been slowed with a groin injury, off and on. He looked smooth against the Vikings.
And while he only had three catches, they were important ones, especially in setting the tone for the Bears offense.
“It was a good Bears win, all around,” he said. “We scored in all three phases.”
Asked if there was anything special about the chemistry between he and Jay Cutler, Williams said, “Just throw and catch.
If only it were that simple for the Bears.
