For a moment, backup running back Tarik Cohen had as many passing touchdowns as fellow rookie Mitch Trubisky.

And that was a bit concerning (okay, not actually, but you get it) considering Trubisky was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the more recent draft.
Fortunately, Trubisky wasn’t going to let that stand for long, as his touchdown pass to Dion Sims was listed as NFL’s best of the week:

Trubisky didn’t make many passing attempts and completed only half of his throws – seeing a box score that shows 8 of 16 completed passes for 113 yards isn’t quite what you would expect from a rookie with such promise – however, we can safely say Trubisky made the most of his throws, bringing home the NFL’s best of the week.
So if Trubisky’s 26-yard touchdown toss was the best of the week, what does that mean for Dion Sims’ catch?

That’s a five-star catch by a tight end the Bears were hoping could develop into a red zone pass-catching target. Awesome.
