Chris Harris ended the drama Sunday, by intercepting Mark Sanchez in the final minute.
Bears Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs then cast a nice compliment to his veteran teammate.
"That's the reason we brought him back," Briggs said, referring to the offseason trade that brought Harris back from the Carolina Panthers. "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."
The last comment is interesting, since the Bears have been rotating Harris, Danieal Manning and rookie Major Wright at the two safety spots. The Bears have been trying to work Wright, the team's third-round pick, onto the field.
Wright clearly is more athletic than Harris, but he hasn't been able to translate that advantage into meaningful plays. Harris, meanwhile, intercepted his team-high fifth pick.
He might miss some tackles in the open field, but Harris has done an excellent job near the line of scrimmage and making the plays he's given a chance to make.
