Can Defense Get Interception in Consecutive Weeks?

In Week 6, for the first time all season, the Bears’ defense finally recorded an interception. Not only did they get one, but they snagged two, with one resulting in a 90-yard return for a touchdown by safety Adrian Amos. Carolina’s 17th ranked passing game shouldn’t pose much of a threat against Chicago’s eighth-ranked pass defense. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has thrown nine touchdowns and eight interceptions so far this year. There were two games in which he’s thrown three picks. However, only two of Newton’s interceptions have come on the road, to go along with eight touchdowns. Without a doubt, turnovers will come in handy for the Bears, and trying to get one from a former league MVP may be a difficult task.
