5 game changing plays that sealed win for Chicago Bears
4. Khalil Herbert 52 yard run
The Chicago Bears’ offense did not end things on the right note in the first half. They trailed 14-13 at halftime, then Houston went right down the field and made it 17-13. It felt like the game was about to flip again.
That is when Khalil Herbert came up huge. He ripped off a 52-yard run on the first offensive play the Bears ran of the second half. Three plays later, Herbert was finishing the drive off with a touchdown.
Considering the team did not score another touchdown, and they only needed another field goal to win the game, this was a momentous play. It was on par for Herbert, who was the clear offensive player of the game.
If the team did not have some big timely runs from Khalil Herbert then they would have been in trouble. None of these runs were bigger than the one that started the half and started the touchdown drive that gave Chicago a 20-17 lead.
