CHICAGO (670 The Score) -- It all happened so fast. Bears linebacker Roquan Smith, who had just scored a touchdown for the first time since he was a Macon County Bulldog, found himself swept up in the excitement. In front of the first full Soldier Field crowd in almost two years, his 53-yard pick-six had given the Bears a two-touchdown lead, and the lakefront was bumping. Somewhere in the delirium of the end-zone dogpile, Smith flipped the ball into the stands -- it was the only mistake he made all afternoon.
“I’ll just keep the jersey and the memory,” Smith joked after the Bears' 20-17 win against the Bengals. “The guy who got the ball, I’m sure he’ll enjoy it. If I can make his day, I’m fine with that.”
