Cody Parkey is wearing Titans colors, but the Bears are still doinking kicks.

About 13 minutes into the Bears’ game Sunday against the Chargers, kicker Eddy Pineiro lined up for a 33-yard field goal — and missed it after doinking the kick off the right upright.

It was Pineiro’s second miss of the season — he missed one when the Bears had a second half lead against the Redskins — but his first-ever off the upright. He was kicking into a different end zone than Parkey did when he double-doinked the potential game-winner in the Bears’ January playoff loss to the Eagles.

Parkey was out of the league until two weeks ago, when he signed with the Titans. He hit the upright on an extra point miss last week.
