How did the Chicago Bear cornerbacks play against the New York Jets?
When you face a quarterback who completes 14 passes for 153 yards in the entire game, you are going to have a good chance to win the game and boost your defensive stats. However, Deontay Burnett did have four receptions for 61 yards. How did that happen and who boosted and saw struggles because of that?
As always, we do our weekly cornerback report with updated stats throughout the season.
Kyle Fuller: 2-4, 43 yards
Season to date: 25-43, 393, Four Touchdowns, Three Interceptions 9.1 yards per target
Kyle Fuller mistimed his jump in a chance to land an interception, and it led to a Burnett reception deep down the field. Otherwise, he was hardly targeted. One of the incompletions was a throwaway where he was the closest defender.
Prince Amukamara: 3-3, 32 yards
Season to date: 14-27, 232 One Touchdown, One interception, 8.6 yards per target
Amukamara gave up a catch to Jermaine Kearse, Charone Peake, and Deontay Burnett. Compared to his typical performances this actually could be considered a down game for Amukamara, although no real damage was done.
