Last week ChicagoBears.com invited fans to select the Bears' top five plays of the season. Finishing in third place with eight percent of the vote was Alshon Jeffery's 45-yard touchdown reception Dec. 15 in a 38-31 win over the Browns in Cleveland.

It appeared that Browns safety Tashaun Gipson was in perfect position to record his third interception of the game. But the pass-which looked more like a punt-sailed over Gipson to Jeffery, who plucked it out of the air and dove into the end zone for a touchdown.

Jeffery's touchdown came immediately after the Browns had taken a 24-17 lead late in the third quarter on T.J. Ward's 51-yard return of a Martellus Bennett fumble.
"To watch Alshon make that catch, you're like, 'Oh my goodness, did he just do that?'" said Bears cornerback Zack Bowman. "Everybody on the sideline just kind of looked at each other. It was a heck of a catch."
