Montgomery has been on a tear over the last five weeks, and he's found the end zone on a number of occasions during that span. Montgomery had 95 rushing yards on the afternoon, and he added a rushing touchdown in the third quarter. https://twitter.com/ChicagoBears/status/1343287592280858626?s=20

Roquan Smith's second interception

Smith wasn't done after his first interception. After Danny Trevathan got a hand on a Glennon pass, it tipped right into the hands of Smith, who recorded his second interception of the day. The takeaway set the Bears offense up for another score. https://twitter.com/ChicagoBears/status/1343288748159758336?s=20
