WATCH: Adrian Amos Intercepts Former Bears Teammate Mitchell Trubisky
Adrian Amos used to be part of the Chicago Bears’ defense. Now, he’s on the other side of the fence. Amos, who signed a 4-year deal with the Green Bay Packers last March, pulled off the most notable defensive play of Wednesday night’s 10-3 Packers win at Soldier Field, picking off Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky late in the fourth quarter.
Chicago was trailing the Packers during that drive with Trubisky having a difficult time operating from the pocket for the entirety of the contest. Trubisky was targeting Allen Robinson during the play, but Amos stepped in off of a fantastic read to complete the interception and give the ball back to Green Bay with just under two minutes left in the contest.
Amos suited up for the Bears during his first four years in the NFL. He was taken by Chicago in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft and went on to record three interceptions, two sacks, and 18 passes defended in 60 games in Bears threads. Trubisky finished the game with 228 yards (26/45) with zero touchdowns and an interception, while also getting sacked five times for a loss of 20 yards.
Trubisky and the Bears will look to bounce back in Week 2 on the road against the Denver Broncos, while the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field next.
