1. Roquan Smith interception

Of course, this is the number one game-changing play of the game. So far it is the play that swung the season, at least from 1-2 to 2-1. While the Houston Texans were not close to scoring like they were in the many other defensive gems from this game, the play did set up the Chicago Bears’ scoring.

In fact, they just needed a run, and a couple of knees before they iced the game. On third down with one yard to go Davis Mills dropped back to pass.

Smith picked the ball off at the 30-yard line and ran it to the 12. The game was all but over after that play. Smith made a play at the goal line that turned six into three and created three for the team right there on his own. That is a six-point game for a defender, which does not happen too often.

dark. Next. 4 Bears off to a good start

Eddie Jackson made a timely play, as did Justin Jones. Khalil Herbert carried the offense, but Roquan Smith was on here twice because he was the top player in this game.
