“I had [Forte in coverage] and I kind of came off him,” Cole said. “I’m really glad it went off my hand because otherwise that was on me. It couldn’t have worked out any better even though it kind of didn’t go the way it was supposed to go.”

Career day for Jeffery

Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had three catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns — in the third quarter.

Jeffery had an 80-yard touchdown catch on the second play of the half. Lined up in the slot, he beat Chris Cook, and McCown hit him in stride.

On the next series, Jeffery leaped over Cook going into the end zone for a sensational 46-yard touchdown. An irate Cook made contact with side judge Laird Hayes after the catch and was ejected.

Jeffery added a 19-yard catch on the next drive. He finished with 12 catches for 249 yards and two TDs. He broke his own team record with the 249 yards. He had 218 on Oct. 6 against New Orleans.

“I think we looked up at one point and Jeffery had something like 10 [catches] for 234 [yards] or something stupid,” Greenway said. “You’re like, holy cow. But we were still in the game.”

Auburn Part II

A day after Auburn’s dramatic walk-off 100-yard return on a missed field goal by Alabama, the Vikings attempted to do the same thing.

Bears kicker Robbie Gould attempted a 66-yard field goal with two seconds left in regulation. The Vikings sent rookie Cordarrelle Patterson deep in case the kick came up short.

The kick fell short and Patterson caught the ball 9 yards deep in the end zone. But unlike Auburn’s Chris Davis, who returned Alabama’s missed field goal for a winning touchdown, Patterson only made it to his own 22-yard line.

Patterson felt he could have scored if he had followed his blockers.

“That’s all they said on the sideline, ‘You should have followed us,’ ” he said. “I tried to set it the wrong way and go the other way. The thing was there, but I put it all on me. I think I could have scored.”
