Chicago ended the 18-play drive with the game-winning 28-yard field goal from Santos.

The Bears won the game, 16-14, and kept the Lions winless. The final drive lasted eight minutes and 30 秒, and the mismanagement at the end of the game ultimately cost the Lions at least a shot of driving down the field and attempt a game-winning play.

Detroit coach Dan Campbell explained the decision.

Obviously can’t do that,” 坎贝尔说, 通过 团队的网站. “But we had miscommunication. Half of our secondary had one call and half had the other. It was a check by what they were doing, so you don’t get it until in the middle of the play, but it’s something we had talked about. You don’t get it pre snap. It’s a call and it’s got basically a check on it to what they’re going to do and what they line up in offensively.

Campbell was asked what might’ve happened if the team didn’t call timeout.

Stand there and watch them score, 我猜,” 他说.

Lions linebacker Alex Anzalone said the defense changed up the scheme after the Bears went max protection and he was trying to relay the call.

I think that we called timeout, and I’m not sure if everyone was on the same page. It was still, 我认为, third down after that. 无论哪种方式, the five-yard penalty wasn’t that huge of a deal. Rather than a touchdown, that really put the game out of arm’s reach,” 他加了.

Detroit never got the ball back.

Detroit dropped to 0-10-1 and hasn’t won a game since Dec. 6, 2020 – ironically against the Bears.
