The Chicago Bears bounced back in Week Two, did their cornerbacks?
In Week One, the Chicago Bears cornerbacks were untouchable through one half, but faltered as the game went on. This week, we saw a Prince Amukamara interception cap off a home win against the Seahawks. Did the cornerbacks bounce back?
Kyle Fuller: 2-3, 29 yards, one touchdown
Season to date: 6-12, 97, Two Touchdowns
Prince Amukamara 2-7 29 yards, One Interception
Season to date: 5-12, 98 One Touchdown, One interception
Bryce Callahan 1-2, two yards
Season to date: 8-9, 65 yards
Sherick McManis 1-1, seven yards
While it is worth noting that Fuller was not tested much, and that is a good mark on Fuller, he gave up another touchdown and a 66% completion rate. Still, while Amukmara was targeted a lot and did have a strong day, the two still stand similarly on their season to date stats.
Amukamara is giving up one less completion for one more yard. The big difference is he has interception brought back to the house and Fuller gave up two touchdowns now to just one of Amukamara.
Bryce Callahan was not tested often and even broke a pass for the first time this season. We also saw Sherrick McManis late with the game out of reach.

Eddie Jackson 1-3, 20 yards
Season to date: 3-5, 96 yards, One Touchdown
Adrian Amos: 2-2, 38 yards
Season to date: 4-5, 51 yards
After being credited for the Randall Cobb touchdown, Eddie Jackson bounced back in a big way. He gave up a big play to Tyler Lockett over the middle of the field, but also was playing over the top, Kyle Fuller just had to be taken underneath and Wilson made a nice pass between the two. Amos, like most of the Bears saw most of the stats come in the fourth quarter when the team typically had a two score lead.
Roquan Smith 6-8, 42 yards, One Touchdown
Danny Trevathan 4-4, 33 yards
Season to Date: 6-7, 44 yards
Leonard Floyd: 0-1
Nick Kwiatkoski 1-1, 8 yards
Season to Date: 5-5, 49 yards
Season to Date: Khalil Mack, 0-1 INT
Do not be concerned by the large amount of receptions allowed by Smith. Most of them came on that last drive in prevent defenses, and the touchdown was the late one to Will Dissley. It is funny that despite less than 10 snaps, Kwiatkoski was still targeted once in the passing game, and has given up more yards than Smith despite more targets and receptions by Smith.
