The punt return that Bears fans thought Johnny Knox returned for a touchdown was quickly called back. According to Rules Analyst Mike Pereira at Fox Sports via Twitter, “On Knox punt return, #21 held the gunner and he grabs and pulls him from behind early in the kick, you can only see it in the live shot.”
In the video, you can see about seconds in that Bears cornerback Corey Graham grabs #24 Jarrett Bush’s jersey on the punt.
What a shame. This could have gone down as one of the best plays in Bears history, just shows you the type of day they had.
