WHAT A CLOSE GAME!! Bears edge Buccaneers 20-19

The Chicago Bears beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-19 last night, October 8th, at home, with a possible mental mistake by Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady sealing Chicago’s victory.

Brady appeared to lose count of the number of downs on his final play, holding up four fingers as if he had one more play left after his fourth-down pass with 33 seconds left was broken up and Chicago got possession.  Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said Brady didn’t lose track of downs, saying, “He knew.”

Cairo Santos scored the winning points for the Bears with a 38-yard field goal with 1:17 remaining.  Bears quarterback Nick Foles was 30 of 42 for 243 yards and a touchdown.  This is looking to be a REALLY great season!!
