The Chicago Bears took on the Minnesota Vikings last night on Monday Night Football and the Bears managed an upset for the books.
The Vikings capitulated all night long and didn't get it going on any phase of play, which the Bears took advantage of to come out with a 20-10 win at Soldier Field.
Chicago had Jay Cutler back under center directing traffic and the long-time Bears quarterback actually didn't play too badly. Except for one play, that is, where he decided to smash a pass off the back of Alshon Jeffery's head. Scroll down to see it.

To be fair to Cutler, he's pretty much hit Jeffery perfectly in stride, splitting the defenders that are converging on the star wide receiver with a tight spiral. Unfortunately, Jeffery just didn't turn around to get it.
It would be very interesting to find out who was in the wrong here. Did Cutler underthrow the ball or was he expecting his wideout to break on his route and come back to the ball in order to make the possession catch?
As if getting hit in the head by the ball wasn't bad enough, Jeffery also had to suffer at the hands of Vikings safety Anthony Harris, who went straight for the receiver's legs with a low tackle.
Jeffery did manage to turn his evening around, however, as the talented playmaker finished the game with four catches for 63 yards and a touchdown, which was his first of the 2016 season.
