CHICAGO – Jimmy Graham can still score touchdowns. Graham’s fourth touchdown reception of the year occurred at a pivotal moment for the Bears, who at one point trailed the Buccaneers 13-0 on Thursday night.

Down 13-7 and with the Bears deep in Tampa territory – courtesy of cornerback Kyle Fuller’s jarring hit on Bucs running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn that resulted in a fumble – quarterback Nick Foles fired a pass near the back left corner of the endzone that Graham snagged with one hand over Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean.

The Bears led 14-13 at halftime. Graham is presently tied for the second most touchdown catches in the NFL.
