As he did so many times in his career at the University of Alabama, it was Eddie Jackson who made the play to help the Chicago Bears win on Thanksgiving. While things seem bleak, in terms of postseason contention for the franchise, the former Crimson Tide safety will not go away quietly. On Thursday, he sealed the game with a late interception in the fourth quarter.
It was his first pick of the season and his ninth career interception – matching his output at Alabama.
David Blough of the Detroit Lions wanted one final shot at the end zone with six seconds remaining; however, Jackson undercut the route at the 10-yard line and made a play.
