When the Bears needed a two-point conversion, that dug deep in the playbook for some trickery.
The Bears struggled to move the ball against a stout Vikings defense in Mitchell Trubisky’s NFL debut, posting just two points at halftime. But Trubisky persevered through bad penalties and the Bears kept the game close via a fake punt.
Trubisky’s first NFL touchdown pass came with just over 12 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, off a tipped pass that was snagged in the end zone by Zach Miller.
Here it is again:
Masterful. It takes some solid blocking, but the Bears have just enough time to pull a double-reverse in their backfield. After Jordan Howard slipped the reverse back to Miller, he pulled off a last-second option pitch to Trubisky for the conversion.
Beautiful play calling. Props to Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains.
