Wondering about a player, a past game or another issue involving the Bears? Senior writer Larry Mayer answers a variety of questions from fans on ChicagoBears.com.

I remember Walter Payton throwing several touchdown passes during his Hall of Fame career, but who was the last Bears running back to throw a TD pass before Tarik Cohen on Sunday?

Ray T.
Oak Park, Illinois

Tarik Cohen became the first Bears running back to throw a touchdown pass since Dec. 30, 2007 when Adrian Peterson tossed a 7-yarder to Bernard Berrian in a 33-25 win over the New Orleans Saints at Soldier Field. Cohen also became the first Bears rookie running back to throw a touchdown pass since Oct. 10, 1965 when Gale Sayers threw a 26-yarder to Dick Gordon in a 31-6 victory over the Los Angeles Rams at Wrigley Field.

When was the last time the Bears won a game in Baltimore?

Paul A.
Cicero, Illinois

Last Sunday the Bears won in Baltimore for the first time since Dec. 5, 1965 when they defeated the Colts 13-0 at Memorial Stadium. Gale Sayers scored the game's only touchdown on a 61-yard run and the Bears defense limited the Colts to 222 total yards. Before last Sunday, the Bears had lost six straight games in Baltimore, four to the Colts and two to the Ravens.

Are the Bears the only NFL team that has two players with a perfect passer rating this season?

Dennis T.
Casper, Wyoming

After tossing touchdown passes the past two weeks, Bears punter Pat O'Donnell and running back Tarik Cohen are the only two players who currently have a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the entire NFL. Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford is third with a 124.4 rating.
