Bryce Callahan’s play will be underrated.
The entire Chicago Bears defense needs to be applauded. That comes first and foremost. However, one stand out who did not stand out on the stat sheet was Bryce Callahan. Callahan had the daunting task of seeing Adam Thielen for the majority of his snaps on the field.

Thielen got his, seven receptions for 66 yards. However, a lot of that came on the outside. It also came late into the game when the Bears had a two-score lead. When Callahan and Thielen were matched up on each other, Callahan was having a pretty strong day.
It is worth noting that this is one of just two games in which Thielen was held under 100 yards. It is also the only time he was held under 100 and held out of the end zone in the same game. That is an impressive feat.
When a cornerback is not getting a lot of tackles, or even interceptions that usually means the ball is not coming their way. That was a good thing for Callahan who played excellent when called upon in a huge matchup.
