Patience pays off in a big way for D’Onta Foreman, Bears

9 months agoJake Mozarsky

After feeling like he could have had more yards against the Vikings, D’Onta Foreman proved it Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

In the Bears’ second win of the season, Foreman rushed for 89 yards and 2 touchdowns on 16 carries, while also tallying 3 receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown. The 3 touchdowns ties a career high for the 27-year-old.

Foreman was ecstatic after Sunday’s game, which was one of the best performances of his career.

“It felt great,” Foreman said to Jeff Joniak on The Official Bears Postgame Live presented by United Airlines. “To get in the endzone and to just pull out a win with these guys.”

The Bears were able to establish the ground game all day, rushing for 170 yards in the victory, while Las Vegas ran for 39. This is the third straight week where the Bears have held their opponent to under 50 yards on the ground — they allowed 29 to the Commanders and 46 to the Vikings.

In the absence of Khalil Herbert, who is on the injured reserve with an ankle injury, Foreman has made the most of his opportunity. After being inactive since Week 1 against the Packers, he has put up back-to-back games as the Bears’ leading rusher and had 2 rushing touchdowns Sunday to show for it.

“I’ve been waiting for my moment,” Foreman said. “It’s finally here, so I’m trying to take advantage of every opportunity that I get.”

Foreman looks for a third straight big performance next Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.
