Chris Harris has made a huge difference on this defense
His turnovers have come during the clinching time of several games this year, it's good to have him back on this D.
The Bears’ regular-season finale against the Packers in Green Bay on Sunday was flexed by the NFL to a 3:15 p.m. kickoff.
‘‘Our preference is to play it at [noon], but it really doesn’t matter,’’ Bears coach Lovie Smith said before the time was switched. ‘‘It’s Green Bay — it’s our rival. We’ll play them anytime.’’
Back where he belongs
Lance Briggs made headlines last year when he said the Bears missed key contributors they lost from the 2006 Super Bowl team.
Safety Chris Harris keeps proving his point. Harris, who was traded to Carolina after the 2006 season but reacquired in the offseason, clinched the victory with an interception. He also had a fumble recovery for a career-high seven takeaways this season.
‘‘That’s the reason we brought him back,’’ Briggs said. ‘‘Never should have left, to be honest with you. All he does is make plays. Really, he needs to be on the field full-time.’’
