Bears Trick Play Featured More Than 3,200 Pounds of Beef

Chicago Bears

Little did we know that Matt Nagy’s bag of tricks would have some holiday flair.

With the Chicago Bears looking to add on to a precarious 8-6 lead, their head coach called upon a play that put everyone at Soldier Field in a celebratory mood:

And here’s the play:

Not bad for something cooked up and installed on a Friday!

Here is a different perspective on what it looked like with all that super-sized beef in motion:

Look at the numbers on the field for this play!

In addition to 72, 68, 75, 78, and 70 – a.k.a. the offensive linemen you’ve grown to know and love in 2018 – the Bears added 90 (Jonathan Bullard), 95 (Roy Robertson-Harris), 96 (Akiem Hicks), 98 (Bilal Nichols), and 79 (Sowell). Talk about a full house backfield.

The audacity to run a play where the quarterback is the only skill-position player, use a defensive tackle to sell play action, and to have a defensive end (who used to be an outside linebacker) and a swing tackle as the only players to run patterns in the end zone is absurd. I can’t even. I mean, who even thinks of this stuff?

Seriously, how does this:

… turn into this:

… and result in this:

You know what, I’m done asking questions. Let’s just enjoy the ride.

Because in a game that featured Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Allen Robinson, Jordan Howard, and Tarik Cohen, that it’s Bradley Sowell getting a game ball for catching the game’s only touchdown in just makes sense.
