Have yourself a game, Mr. Jackson:

The Chicago Bears’ defense is off and running, and so is Eddie Jackson – who just had his SECOND 75-yard touchdown of the first half.
Cam Newton tried to force a ball into a place a ball probably shouldn’t have been thrown, leading to Prince Amukamara deflecting the pass into the air and eventually landing in Jackson’s hands. From there, Jackson did the rest of the work as he sprinted down the field as he eluded Newton and others trying to run him down.
If you’ll recall, the Bears drafted Jackson with the idea he would walk onto the defense and help create turnovers after doing so in college for the Alabama Crimson Tide. So far, so good for the rookie who has been in the starting lineup since Week 1. And for the second consecutive week, the Bears defense has forced multiple turnovers – which the team hadn’t done since 2014.
