Kyler Gordon records interception in first game back


Welcome back, rook. 

Bears rookie Kyler Gordon intercepted a pass from MVP candidate Jalen Hurts during the first drive for the Philadelphia Eagles. 

He made a brilliant read on the play and saved the Bears from the Eagles scoring in the first quarter. Before the defensive stand, the Bears failed to convert a fourth-down situation in the Eagles' zone. 

Gordon missed two games leading up to the Bears' bye week in Week 14 due to a concussion. Rookie safety Jaquan Brisker also missed time during that span because of a concussion. 

The rookie product from Washington has created a positive impact for the Bears this season, playing as the nickel and outside starting corner all season. 

This season, Gordon has one interception and forced fumble along with 55 total tackles. 

The Bears selected Gordon with their first pick in the 2022 NFL draft. He was taken with the No. 39 overall pick in the second round of the draft.
