When Eddie Jackson is rolling, he shows off incredible instincts and an uncanny knack for making big plays and forcing turnovers. And just when the Chicago Bears needed a stop after taking an early lead, Jackson took it into his own hands to extend the team’s lead:

It officially goes in the books as a forced fumble by Jackson and a 65-yard return touchdown. That’s the third defensive touchdown for the Bears this season, which is a welcome sign after their recent struggles on that side of the ball. For Jackson, that’s his third career defensive touchdown in two seasons. Impressive stuff by the Alabama product, who continues to roll with the good times as a leader in the Bears’ secondary.
Jackson’s touchdown extended the Bears’ lead to 14-0, giving the team some much-needed breathing room in what has been a tough environment to build momentum in the early going.
