The final sequence at the end of Sunday’s first half in Chicago was so wild that it took up 10 lines of space in the play-by-play portion of the NFL’s official score sheet.
The craziness began with 6 seconds until halftime, when Chicago Bears special-teams ace Sherrick McManis blocked a 35-yard field goal attempt by Pittsburgh that Marcus Cooper scooped up on the run.
Cooper had nothing but daylight between him and the end zone, but he inexplicably slowed down right before he crossed the goal line and was hit from behind by the Steelers’ Vance McDonald. Cooper fumbled the ball into the end zone, but Pittsburgh punter/holder Jordan Berry swatted the ball out of bounds before a Bears player could fall on it.

“We prefer to take this moment in time and work together, all of us, to stop the divisiveness.”
