Monday Night Football
Last night, the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears met in Chicago on Monday night for the season finale of MNF on ESPN. The Bears trailed 14-3 at halftime, mostly because neither the offense or the defense were awake. The Packers scored their two touchdowns in the 1st half, one on a rocket pass from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings, and the other on a screen pass to Ryan Grant that was taken all the way. On the Bears 1st drive in the 2nd half, they had to punt, but it bounced off a Green Bay player and it was recovered by the Bears. Eventually, the Bears tied it at 17, and a last second field goal attempt by the Packers was blocked, and the game went into OT. The coin toss bounced off Brian Urlacher's helmet, and Chicago won it. 3 and a half minutes later, Robbie Gould kicked a game-winning field goal for the 2nd straight week to keep the Bears playoff hopes alive.
