With five minutes to go in Sunday’s Bears game against the Vikings, things looked good for the home town team. However, after allowing the Vikings to tie the game at 20, things would go really bad for the Bears.

Plenty of fans wasted no time in starting the blame game.

Both rookie running back Jeremy Langford and veteran safety Antrel Rolle made glaring and costly mistakes in the final minutes of the game, setting up the eventual game winning field goal.

On third down, Jay Cutler scrambled before finding an open Langford coming across the field. Despite a perfect pass, Langford dropped the ball and the Bears would punt.

With less than a minute left, the Bears defense had a chance to force overtime. Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw the ball deep down field with a waiting Antrel Rolle in position. The Bears safety jumped up for the interception, but lost track of receiver Charles Johnson who would step in front and make the catch.

After the game, Bears fans looked back at those two plays as the reasons the Vikings won.
