On a third-and-14 with 5:24 remaining in the third quarter, Bears quarterback Josh McCown dropped back and threw deep down the left sideline to Jeffery. Draped by defenders, Jeffery made a gorgeous catch over Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook -- while maintaining possession and dragging both feet into the end zone for a touchdown. The score gave the Bears a 19-10 lead.

Jeffery's catch was so unbelievable that Cook made contact with an official afterward. Cook got a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and was ejected from the game.

Jeffery ended the game with 12 receptions for 249 yard and two touchdowns in the team's 23-20 overtime loss to the Vikings.
