Cole Kmet’s breakout is happening in front of our very eyes.
Tight end Cole Kmet has been Justin Fields’ most valuable go-to receiver this season as the Chicago Bears try to integrate their passing game with Fields’ athletic abilities. Kmet had 23 catches on 33 targets for 274 yards and a team-high five receiving touchdowns entering Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Bears had first-and-10 at their own 49-yard line with 10:18 left in the first half of Sunday’s game, and Fields wanted to go deep to Kmet. That decision was made far wiser by the tight end, who somehow went Animal Style over cornerback A.J. Terrell for the incredible one-handed catch.
If five touchdowns in three games wasn’t enough to put him on your radar, this insane grab will:
Per Luis Medina “Who knew that Cole Kmet had this in him? A player who went a good two years without scoring a touchdown is so deep in his bag of tricks that he is making one-handed catches now. What a remarkable development”.
The catch aided the Bears’ next scoring drive. It was merely a field goal. He has nine catches and 115 receiving yards in the last two weeks, by far his most productive two-game stretch of the season.
