One of the biggest plays in the Kansas City Chiefs 18-17 loss to the Chicago Bears was a penalty on Marcus Peters. The Chiefs CB was flagged for pass interference with a minute left in the game, which put the Bears in the red zone.
The Bears had the ball on the 37-yard line and Jay Cutler went deep down the right sideline to Marquess Wilson. Peters and Wilson were locked up and the refs threw the flag on the play. Peters obviously disagreed because he looked very pissed off at the referee.
Andy Reid disagreed with it, too (which is no surprise).
"I didn't agree with it, but that's hindsight," Reid said after the game. "It's over. Can't do anything about it. I thought, if anything, it was a push off the other way."
Here's how it looked when the ball was in the air.
As it got closer, here's the shot:
It was close. Definitely close.
In the end, I'm not sure that it would have mattered. The Bears were moving the ball on the Chiefs too easily and if it weren't that play it probably would have been another one.
This is the second time this season the Chiefs defense has been put in a position where they need a stop to win the game. They couldn't do it against the Broncos, and they failed against the Bears.
What a depressing season.
