The Bears played three and a half quarters of just flat out terrible Football, but somehow managed to pull out a win. After a Matt Forte TD to tie the game, Will Blackmon returned the following kickoff to the 50, but an Adrian Peterson late hit gave the Packers the ball at the Bears' 45 yard line.
After a first down and a few runs, the Packers had a chance for the win with a 38 yard Mason Crosby FG. The Bears blocked it, sent the game into overtime (after a coin toss off the head of Urlacher), and proceeded to keep their Playoff dreams alive with a 47 yard drive and a game winning Robbie Gould FG....
This season just gets more and more ridiculous each week. The Packers should have won that game by twenty, but the Bears would not be denied. And with that we bid adieu to the 2008 season of Monday Night Football. Try not to cry.
