5 best things about the Chicago Bears through five weeks

At 1-4 and tied for last in the NFC North, the Bears aren't where they hoped they'd be five games into the season. Fresh off a win against Washington, though, there are reasons for optimism.

Chicago Bears Observation No. 2: Cole Kmet and his TD celebrations

When the Bears handed Cole Kmet a four-year, $50 million contract this offseason, it came with the expectation that the fourth-year tight end would continue developing into one of the best players at his position.

Five weeks in, and Kmet is making good on that promise. Among tight ends, he's tied for fifth in receptions and sixth in yards, but the best part about Kmet's on-field success has been his touchdown celebrations.

Kmet has found the end zone three times, and each score has been accompanied by his signature home run celebration. This one against the Broncos, though, took it to a whole new level.

A noted Cubs fan, maybe Kmet is imagining blasting a fastball over the ivy and onto Waveland Avenue as the Wrigley faithful go wild. For fans of the Cubs and Bears that narrowly saw their team miss the MLB playoffs, this may be the next best thing.
