Feckin hell that was dramatic!!! Some teams don't experience as much shenanigans in a whole season as just happened in the last 30 seconds of the Bears game.

Think the roughing the passer call that gave the Bears a chance was bollocks.

Fair play to Trubisky for the play before the FG. Literally perfect to the second.

One big ridiculous call per team, IMO. Quarter Backs are treated as an endangered species.

So difficult for the defenders to know what to do now. Late hits, helmet to helmet and cheap shots to QB's legs are rightly penalised.

However, legitimate tackles like that should not be flagged.

Officiating in the NFL often makes Kevin Friend look competent

I think the Bears will be close to the Superbowl this year, mate. Just need to tweak the attack.

I can't remember the last time the 49ers started a season with back to back wins. Steelers will be a sterner test next time out.

Ben Roethlisberger out for the season makes it an easier task.

If you think that's bad you should have seen the officiating in BAFL in the late 80s. And then multiply by 10 for the junior league.

Antonio Brown released by New England Patriots after just one game

He now says that he'll never play in the NFL again.
I suspect that 32 owners might take that decision out of his hands after the last couple of weeks antics and accusations.
