On third down, Smith was sitting in zone as Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow audibled at the line of scrimmage, looking for a big completion on third down. For a moment, it looked like Burrow had wide receiver Tyler Boyd open.
Smith closed that window very quickly. Smith intercepted the pass and returned it 53 yards for a touchdown.
It illustrated the fits the Bears' defense gave Cincinnati all day. After that throw, Burrow was 14-of-22 passing for 128 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. The team had 162 total yards.
On his next pass, Burrow was intercepted again when defensive back Jaylon Johnson picked him off on the sideline.
