Bears RB Jordan Howard, who left the field on two separate occasions because of a shoulder injury, gashed the Steelers for 138 yards and two touchdowns, including the game winner in OT.
“Sometimes I was hurt pretty bad,” Howard said. “I didn’t feel like I could finish. But my teammates kept pushing me through, and my coach, and I just saw my team -- they kept fighting, so I had to keep playing."

Howard's injury was kind of buried in the story, which was mainly about how Howard and Cohen are forming a "thunder and lightning" duo so far this season. Howard certainly bounced back after a miserable Week 2 game. Cohen continues to play a role, too, collecting 15 touches in Week 3.
