After pulling to within two points on a late Jeremy Langford touchdown run, Chicago lined up to go for two to tie Sunday’s game against Denver at 17.
Jay Cutler checked to a run at the line of scrimmage, but Martellus Bennett didn’t get the memo. Instead of staying in to run block, the tight end ran his route, leaving safety T.J. Ward free to stop Langford short of the goal line, and secure the Broncos’ 17-15 win.
Watch the play unfold:
But Bennett wasn’t the only one who didn’t hear Cutler’s call. Rookie center Hroniss Grasu, who played for this first time since injuring his neck prior to Week 8, dropped back into pass protection rather than blocking for Langford.
Chicago’s past three losses have now come by a combined eight points, but the Bears won’t have much time to sulk. They face Green Bay at Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving night.
