If you thought Russell Wilson was short while throwing the ball, just watch Tarik Cohen.

Cohen is a 5-foot-6 running back for the Chicago Bears, but threw an awesome 21-yard touchdown pass to tight end Zach Miller on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. 

With the pass, Cohen became the shortest player to throw a touchdown in 83 years. Wee Willie Smith, also 5-foot-6, threw a touchdown in 1934 for the New York Giants. 



The Bears won 27-24 in overtime.
