Hundley Outplays Trubisky Down The Stretch In Bears Loss

Fox said following the Bears loss that he challenged the play because "every indication we had was that he scored". Some posters added the hashtag #FireFox to leave no room for doubt.

The Packers proceeded to go on an eight play 75-yard scoring drive that saw Brett Hundley go 3-3 for 45 yards and a touchdown to go with a huge 17-yard run on a third and two.

Trubisky did have a career day, passing for 297 yards and a score for a 97.0 quarterback rating, but it wasn't enough as Green Bay's defense held the predictable Bears offense in check.

Instead, the replay showed the ball coming out of Cunningham's hands before it hit the pylon, and the fumble into the end zone resulted in a touchback for Green Bay.

WGN's Marcus Leshock crafted a meme of the situation, coupling a clip of Fox's face, as the realization of the referees' reversal dawns on him, with "Frolic", the bumbling theme song of HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm".

Fox made a decision in the second quarter that put the Bears in a bad position.

The Packers finally won without Rodgers, beating the Chicago Bears 23-16 on Sunday. The game's most important play was decided by mere inches, the difference in space between a foot staying in-bounds or going out, and a ball touching a pylon or missing it.

Hundley also converted a pair of third downs with completions on the first drive of the third quarter, setting up a field goal.

Bears running back Benny Cunningham pleads his case after being ruled short of the goal line against the Packers.

The Detroit Lions will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11 of the National Football League schedule on Sunday, start time at 1:00 PM ET, at Soldier Field, Chicago, IL.

Perry was a beast on the defensive side of the ball for the Packers on Sunday, racking up three sacks against the rookie Mitchell Trubisky.

"We're trying to weather the storm until 12 (Rodgers) gets back", linebacker Clay Matthews said. "Which creates a touchback".

Cunningham said he thought it was a TD at first, but he agreed with the call after watching the replay. Running backs are taught to not try and push the ball over the goal line unless its fourth down because of the exact issue that the Bears faced on Sunday.

Now, find me someone who really thinks this team can magically go 6-1 and somehow have a shot at the playoffs.

At this point in the season, they're simply playing for pride.

The Bears still had a chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter, trailing by seven points.

The challenge that backfired comes at a bad time for Fox, who is 12-28 since taking the Bears job in 2015.
