Number Eight, Week Three Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys
This is when all Bears fan knew that they had something in Jordan Howard. In his second game with the Bears, and his fourth career NFL carry, Howard makes the most of what the defense gives him and rips off a 36 yard run. Howard stays patient behind the line, which is impressive for a rookie coming off of the bench. He sees his hole, waits for his opportunity and explodes with speed and burst to finish the play. This was the third longest run of the year for Howard and one of four runs over 30 yards.
Number Seven Week Eight, Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears
It does not always have to be an explosive play to be a great run. In the waining minutes of the fourth quarter, Howard picked up ten yards, got a first down and helped milk the clock for the Bears second win of the season. Not only that, he did it in style. This is all vision and instincts. He gets the entire defense running right, and then cuts back with speed and quickness to grab the first down. This run can be credited 100-percent to Howard.
