Video: Bears’ Roquan Smith ruins Joe Burrow’s day with pick-6 of Bengals QB
It has been a low-scoring affair between the Chicago Bears and Cincinnati Bengals at Soldier Field, and Roquan Smith just made the play of the game to date with a huge interception of Joe Burrow. Smith returned the pick 53 yards for a touchdown to give the Bears a 17-3 lead.

Burrow had gone 199 straight passes without an interception before this pick-6. It was the longest streak in the NFL. The Bengals quarterback then threw another interception the very next possession, and then another one the possession after that. Just a crazy turn of events against the Bears for the youngster.
Sunday’s showdown in Chicago has been quite eventful, even with a lack of scoring. Andy Dalton led the Bears on a touchdown drive to open the game, but then he suffered a knee injury and limped off the field. He tried to return to the game, only to go to the locker room at the end of the first half. This paved the way for Justin Fields to come into the game and play on a full-time basis.
It has been a mixed bag for Fields, but he hasn’t gotten much help from his receivers and offensive line. We’ll see if he’ll stay as the starting quarterback for next week or if the Bears will go back to Dalton if h’s healthy.
