Jaquan Brisker Pulls Down First NFL Interception (VIDEO)

Chicago Bears rookie and former Penn State Football standout Jaquan Brisker made his presence felt against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, to cap Week 7 of the NFL season.

Brisker, chosen by the Bears in the second-round of the 2022 NFL Draft, was briefly knocked from the game when he was inadvertently kicked by Patriots quarterback Mack Jones, but would have the last laugh.

Moments after returning to the game, Brisker jumped the route near the sideline to make a leaping one-handed high-point catch to pull down his first career interception.


Brisker has quickly developed into a centerpiece of the Bears’ secondary, and is integral to the franchise’s rebuilt defense.

Through the first six games of his career, Brisker has already produced 35 tackles, two sacks, and now his first career interception.

Penn State Football head coach James Franklin believes Brisker has the chance to be one of the more multi-faceted safeties in the NFL.

“Some guys are elite in the passing game but average against the run, or vice-versa,” Franklin told Heavy’s Matt Lombardo. “Jaquan has a chance to be special in both.”
