Bears give up long TD as Eddie Jackson, Tashaun Gipson inexplicably fail to touch down Rams WR who had fallen to ground


(670 The Score) New season, similar Bears frustration and embarrassment.

In front of a national television audience on Sunday Night Football, the Bears fell behind early in the first quarter against the Rams on a play in which safety Eddie Jackson and safety Tashaun Gipson inexplicably didn’t touch down Los Angeles receiver Van Jefferson as he fell to the ground after hauling in a long bomb from quarterback Matthew Stafford. Both Gipson and Jackson looked to have a chance to touch down Jefferson but instead … did nothing, allowing Jefferson to get back up and run the final 15 or so yards into the end zone.

The 67-yard touchdown and extra point gave the Rams an early 7-0 lead.
