A pair of No. 38s teamed up to give the Chicago Bears a touchdown.
First, let’s meet Clifton Duck:

Duck picked off Giants quarterback Alex Tanney near the end zone, then rumbled down the sideline for 62 yards to set the Bears up with premier field position on the Giants side of the field. And rather than settle for a field goal, Kerrith Whyte Jr. — who is also wearing No. 38 — punched in a touchdown at the goal line. The score came after review when Head Coach Matt Nagy threw the challenge flag, but better late than never, I suppose.
Preseason football can be a drag, but watching the Bears turn defense into offense never gets old. And if the likes of Duck and Whyte can keep it up, they could be contributing in September when games matter.
