The Chicago Bears are still alive in the playoff-race mainly because of the emergence of wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. The second-year man out of South Carolina is coming off of a 249-yard performance on 12 catches last week vs. the Minnesota Vikings, two of which were for touchdowns.
In the first-half of tonight’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Jefferey has already caught five passes for 84 yards and a score, and his last catch was one to remember, and it put the Bears up by 10 points right before the half ended:

Jeffery’s ability to use his size/leverage (6-foot-3, 216 pounds) to gain separation back to the football combined with his speed has made him one of the best receivers in football, and he’s starting to look like former NFL receiver Randy Moss, who’s likely going to the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday.
As the guys at SB Nation noted, Jefferey may very well make it there too at the rate he’s going.
