Jackson's 2 defensive TDs lead Bears past Panthers 17-3

CHICAGO (AP) Rookie safety Eddie Jackson became the first NFL player to score multiple defensive touchdowns of 75 yards or more in a game, leading the Chicago Bears to a 17-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Jackson ran back a fumble recovery 75 yards on the game's opening possession and returned an interception of Cam Newton 76 yards for a score early in the second quarter to give Chicago a 14-0 lead.

He became the first Bears player since Fred Evans in 1948 - and the first NFL player since Tennessee's Zach Brown in 2012 - with two defensive TDs in a game.
