The Bears came achingly close to snapping their three-game losing streak on Monday night against the Steelers, but they had no idea they would be facing the refs as well on this night.
They suffered a 29-27 defeat on a last-minute field goal by Pittsburgh’s Chris Boswell.
With 3:40 left in the fourth quarter and trailing by three, the Bears got a critical stop on a third-down sack by Cassius Marsh. He would then get flagged for a taunting penalty, extending Pittsburgh’s drive. The Steelers were able to burn almost another minute off the clock, then kicked a 52-yard field goal to extend their lead to six points.
On top of that bad penalty was the ref hip-checking him as he made his way back to the bench.
Marsh called that out after the game.
