There was a moment in the 4th quarter of the game between the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Rams that the score was down to six points after Devin Hester, he of kickoff/punt return fame, showed why he is so dangerous and broke through tackles to get into the end zone on a punt return. Then the flags fell calling the play back on a holding call by Safety Craig Stelz.
“On the sideline, a few of us were talking,” receiver Brandon Marshall said. “This game is just so tough. National Football League, you never know. It seems like these last few years, it’s going down to the last few games, and it looks like it’s going to be the same this year.
“We had an opportunity to take advantage of what else happened in our division, but we didn’t. That just goes to show you how tough this game is.”
Penalties also killed the Bears as they were flagged 10 times for 84 yards and in the end, the Rams blew out the Bears 42-21.
The Bears still have a shot at the playoffs and look to right the ship against the Minnesota Vikings December 1st. Great seats and tickets are still available!
