What do you do when the play isn't perfect?
The Mensch @TarikCohen makes something out of nothing on this one

Barry Sanders is still very much alive, but you get the point.
On two occasions during the Chicago Bears' Week 9 game against the Buffalo Bills, Cohen reversed the field in Sanders-esque fashion to make something out of nothing.
He's a good 14 yards in his own backfield on that second play, yet miraculously turns it into a 7-yard gain.
Like Sanders, Cohen is a diminutive back (he's listed at 5-foot-6) with loads of elusiveness.
The Bears won big with the help of Cohen, blowing out the Bills 41-9.
