Roquan Smith delivers impressive pick-6 of Joe Burrow, rumbles 54 yards
Roquan Smith scored the first touchdown of his NFL career at the expense of a former SEC brethren.
Smith, who played for Georgia, dropped into zone coverage and appeared to be unaccounted for in the Bears defense by Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who played at LSU. Smith picked off a pass and set off for the end zone.
With a convoy of blockers, Smith rumbled 54 yards as he threw Burrow aside just before reaching the goal line.

Another interception would put Smith in elite company. He had 2 interceptions last season against Jacksonville. Before that, the last Bear to intercept 2 or more passes in a game was former Alabama linebacker Ha-Ha Clinton Dix in 2019.
The Bears currently lead the Bengals 20-3 as Burrow has suffered a slew of interceptions.
