CHICAGO -- Bears running back David Montgomery's second season has been mostly full of frustration, but the 2019 third-round pick has slowly turned the corner the past two weeks.

Fresh off a season-best 57-yard run in Week 12 at Green Bay, Montgomery struck early versus Detroit on Sunday, taking a first-quarter handoff on the Lions' 13-yard line and bouncing outside several times to elude defenders on his way to touchdown.

Montgomery put an exclamation point on the score by stretching the ball out over the front corner of the end zone and nicking the pylon as he tumbled out of bounds.

It marked just Montgomery's second rushing touchdown of the season.
