Bears' Jordan Howard scores on trick, later drops likely game-winner

Posted September 11, 2017

The Atlanta Falcons are trying to avoid that whole Super Bowl Hangover thing, and while they've had a close game with the Bears, this play between Matt Ryan and Austin Hooper is a thing of beauty.

Hooper caught 19 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie a year ago.

The Falcons sacked Glennon four times, none bigger than Reed's takedown on fourth down at the 5 near the end of the game.

"So I just go out there and give everything I got". They paid a ton of money to Mike Glennon in the offseason and then drafted Mitchell Trubisky high in the first round.

The Bears have touted their depth as being dramatically improved, and this goes for the quarterback position. Jeff Joniak, the voice of the Bears, did not believe that controversy was the correct terminology. "Like I said how we respond moving forward is going to be key". "To me there was no controversy".

When they saw him hunched over on the sidelines, Bears fans cringed. Fellow Bears receiver Cameron Meredith-who is himself out for the year with an ACL tear suffered in the preseason-posted on Twitter a message of support for his teammate.

"That's way too premature", Joniak said. They've got confidence in themselves, as all teams and athletes do, especially at the outset of a new season. "They do have a good chance for the front seven to be highly ranked in that regard they have multiple weapons in the front seven that can be rotated by Vick Vangio to create pressure".

These pickups would be especially clutch if you happen to play in a deep league (think 12 or 14 teams).

The Bears start the season at 0-1. The combination of his big size, good speed, excellent hands and role in a pass-heavy offense made him a late-round pick worth taking. The Bears were driving down the field in the last minute of the game down by six, and got into the redzone, but Jordan Howard and Josh Bellamy dropped what would have been touchdown passes.

"We ran the ball well and threw the ball well in the fourth quarter, but it's definitely a tough one to swallow to not finish that drive at the end". Otherwise, Ryan will be able to play catch all day with receivers Julio Jones (83 catches, 1,409 yards, 6 TDs in 2016) and Mohamed Sanu (59 catches, 653 yards, 4 TDs). Atlanta took Chicago quarterback Mike Glennon to the ground four times on Sunday afternoon.
