Tim Jennings wins NFC defensive player of the month


No defense has been better at taking the ball away than Chicago’s.

And no Bear has been better at it than Tim Jennings, which is why he won NFC defensive player of the month honors Thursday.

The Bears cornerback leads the NFL with four interceptions, and his nine passes broken up are tied for the league lead.

Jennings has also broken up a pair of passes which were intercepted by teammates.

The Bears lead the league with 14 takeaways and 11 interceptions.
