Former Bears safety Adrian Amos enjoyed a storybook return to Soldier Field Thursday night when he sealed Green Bay's 10-3 victory with a late-game interception of Mitch Trubisky that ended a potential game-tying drive.
Amos signed a massive four-year, $37 million contract with the Packers in free agency and was arguably the Bears' biggest loss from a 2018 defense that was widely considered the best in the NFL.
Amos caught up with NFL Network's Stacey Dales after the game and explained how he was able to make such a critical game-deciding play.
“They did the play a couple of times," Amos said. "He (Trubisky) missed it one of the times he was open on it, and they did it again and they didn’t hit it."
Packers CB Tramon Williams said Amos called his shot.
“He called it. He came to the sideline and said it. He came up with the play. Big play for Amos, especially here in Chicago.”
The most ironic part of all this is that Amos was never known for creating turnovers during his tenure as a Bear. He had just three interceptions in four seasons in Chicago. He's 1-for-1 in Green Bay.
The Bears' offense struggled in their season opener against the rival Packers. But despite their offensive woes, quarterback Mitch Trubisky had the Bears within striking distance of the end zone at the end of the game.
But a Club Dub trip wasn't in the cards and former teammate Adrian Amos intercepted the pass in the end zone to seal the win for the Packers.
And Amos was in a position to make that play because he says knew what play was coming when he saw the formation.
"I was talking about that play a little bit before," Amos said in a post-game interview with Michele Tafoya. "I saw it when they got in that formation, I read it and I went to try and got get the ball and I made the play. I feel good right now."
Amos didn't clarify how he knew what play was coming, whether it was from his time at Halas Hall or whether they saw it on film in preparations for this game.
Either way, it stings all that more to see a beloved former Bear seal the loss with an interception in the end zone.

The worst nightmare for Chicago Bears fans became reality Thursday night when former Bears safety Adrian Amos intercepted Mitch Trubisky in the end zone late in the fourth quarter. The turnover ended what may have been the Bears' last chance to tie the game.
Trubisky's night is one he'd like to soon forget. Despite a strong showing from Chuck Pagano's defense, Trubisky's pedestrian outing just wasn't good enough to put the Bears in position to score any meaningful points.
Trubisky's stat line through the interception stands at 26-of-45 for 226 yards and the Amos interception.
