David Montgomery’s official NFL breakthrough came down the stretch of his second season with the driven running back making the most of his increased opportunities late in the year. In the Bears’ six regular-season games after Thanksgiving, Montgomery totaled 824 yards from scrimmage and eight touchdowns. Included in that stretch were a 57-yard run on his first carry against the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 and an 80-yard touchdown dash two weeks later against the Houston Texans.
