Tim Jennings Again Stars In Bears Victory

After another strong performance on Sunday, Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings is clearly emerging as one of the key players on a very good defensive unit. As Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune writes, Jennings may finally be coming into his own as a Pro Bowl defender this season.

Against the St. Louis Rams last week, Jennings recorded two tackles and an interception, plus he tipped another pass that was eventually picked off by safety Major Wright. After having his improved ball skills praised by defensive coordinator Rob Miranelli during training camp, Jennings' extra work appears to be paying off.

For the 28-year-old cornerback, this could finally be his breakout season. A seven-year veteran of the NFL, Jennings has already recorded a career-high four interceptions in just three games this year. In his first two seasons with the Bears, Jennings picked off just three passes despite playing in all 32 games.
