Against Nate Peterman and the Buffalo Bills, the Chicago Bears defense had a good day. How did the cornerbacks fare?
The Chicago Bears secondary was able to pad their stats against the Buffalo Bills and pick off Nate Peterman three times and take one to the house. They also took a fumble to the house and completely shut down the Bills offense.
Like every week, this post will track which cornerbacks and secondary members were targeted to note how each player has trended through the season. How did the cornerbacks look?
Kyle Fuller: 1-9 14 yards One INT
Season to date: 26-52, 407, Four Touchdowns, Four Interceptions 7.8 yards per target
Kyle Fuller was tested all day. He shut down the Buffalo Bills passing attack all day. Fuller was physical and relentless in his pursuit to the football. He picked off a pass himself and tipped a ball into the air that led to a pick six.
This was one of the more dominant performances that Fuller has put forth with the Bears. After a rough start against Aaron Rodgers, his stats are starting to come into form for a great year.
Prince Amukamara; 3-4 17 yards
Season to date: 17-31, 249 One Touchdown, One interception, 8 yards per target
Nate Peterman is a limited quarterback physically and was not looking left often. With that in mind, Amukamara had a limited day. While he surrendered three catches, two of them were in garbage time. His stats are not far off of Fuller with less targets.
Bryce Callahan: 1-1, 9 yards
Season to date: 25-34 256 yards, Two Interception, 7.5 yards per target
Bryce Callahan was hardly tested in this game. Even the reception he allowed was in zone with a quick tackle after the catch that did not allow a first down. He was not tested.
Sherrick McManis: 1-1 6 yards
Season to date: 5-7, 47 yards, One TD One Interception 6.7 yard per target
Kevin Toliver: 1-2, 12 yards
Season to date: 10-15, 137 yards, 9.1 yards per target
Sherrick McManis and Kevin Toliver saw some late game burn, and Toliver had a nice pass breakup.
Eddie Jackson did a great job of keeping everything in front of him. Seven yards given to a safety is a nice day. One of the two receptions he gave up was also the fumble that he turned into a touchdown for the Bears.
Eddie Jackson: 2-4, 7 yards
Season to date: 10-20, 127 yards, Two Touchdown, One Interception, 6.4 yards per target
Adrian Amos caught an interception on a tipped pass from Kyle Fuller. Still, he also had a great day limiting yards after the catch. Deon Bush and DeAndre Houston-Carson were able to see snaps late as well.
Adrian Amos: 3-6, 14 yards INT
Season to date: 14-23 129 yards, One Interception 5.6 yards per target
Deon Bush 1-1, 6 yards

DeAndre Houston Carson: 0-1
Roquan Smith gave up a 20 yard reception, but aside from that was shut down in coverage and after the catch. He has a high completion rate, but one of the best yards per target rates on the team.
Roquan Smith: 8-9, 72 yards
Season to Date: Season to date: 30-42, 230 yards, Two Touchdown, 5.5 yards per target
Trevathan had a nice day in coverage, and Floyd gave up a reception in the screen game that he tackled at the line of scrimmage. He also caught the Kyle Fuller deflection for a pick six. Nick Kwiatkoski saw some work, and even Joel Iyiegbuniwe played.
