Chicago Bears running back Jakeem Grant cranked up his afterburners to give the Bears their first touchdown of the night against the Green Bay Packers.

The play will go down as a 46-yard passing touchdown by Justin Fields, but it was actually a well-executed jet sweep Grant pulled off on second-and-4 from near midfield on Chicago’s third offensive drive.

The Bears sent five lead blockers to the left of the line of scrimmage to create openings for Grant to run through, in which he reached a maximum speed of 20.86 miles per hour, according to NFL Next Gen Stats.

Grant tip-toed down the sideline once he reached the end zone and was narrowly able to stay in bounds to score. The touchdown gave Chicago a 10-0 lead over the Packers with 11:17 to play in the second quarter.

The play is the longest reception of Grant’s career. He gained 50 yards after the catch on the play, tied for most of his yards after the catch in a game in his career, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
