Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman Set NFL Record

08 Oct, 2012

Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman returned interceptions for touchdowns – their second in six days – and the Chicago Bears used stifling defense to overwhelm the Jacksonville Jaguars 41-3 Sunday. Tillman and Briggs became the first teammates in NFL history to return interceptions for touchdowns in consecutive weeks.

“This one was an easier catch,” Tillman said. “Last week, it was, ‘Is he really throwing me the ball?’ This week was normal. This one was easier. It came at a good time. We needed a lift, and that score got us rolling to the point the offense started putting up points after that.”

The Bears (4-1) scored 38 unanswered points, including 35 in the second half, to win their third consecutive game.

The streak has everything to do with defense. Chicago has returned five interceptions for touchdowns in those games.

Tillman and Briggs returned two of the team’s five INTs for scores in Monday night’s 34-18 victory at Dallas. Major Wright returned one the previous week against St. Louis.

Tillman’s second of the season – a 36-yarder in the third quarter – proved to be the decisive play in a game that saw as many punts (six) as points in the first half.

Briggs’ score came after that, a 36-yard return that made it 34-3.
