The Chicago Bears have come out of nowhere to win two in a row and find themselves in the race for a very winnable NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers for the season. Their latest win came in large part from the play of the defense, and specifically Eddie Jackson and his very opportune plays to score touchdowns.
The above video shows the insane play he made on a ball tipped in the air and returned 76 yards to the house. He went 75+ yards for a score twice on the day, the first of which was a fumble return that you won’t believe how he ended up with the ball in the first place.

The two 75+ yard touchdowns by a defensive player is the first instance in NFL history. It’s safe to say Eddie Jackson had himself a day.
