Eddie Jackson is now getting the credit that many in and around the Bears have been clamoring for in recent weeks.
Jackson, who sealed the Bears' 23-16 Thanksgiving win with his second pick-six in as many weeks, was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week today:
It's a fitting award for the underhearlded safety, who's scored five defensive touchdowns since being drafted in 2017. No defensive player in football has more.
Jackson's award completes a trifecta of sorts for the Bears:
Eddie Jackson was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week today, meaning the Bears have now had in the last three weeks an offensive player of the week (Trubisky, Week 10), special teams played of the week (Parkey, Week 11) and defensive player of the week (Jackson, Week 12).— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) November 28, 2018
