Last-second shuffle goes awry for Bears

CHICAGO -- The Bears seemed to be in some level of confusion on the play where Green Bay took a 7-0 lead here at Soldier Field.

Defensive back Trumaine McBride sprinted onto the field at the last second with the Packers facing a third-and-four at the Bears' 7-yard line. McBride arrived just in time to line up in front of Packers receiver Greg Jennings in the slot.

Jennings ran a shallow cross into the end zone against McBride, who fell as Jennings hauled in the catch. It wasn't entirely clear what type of defense the Bears were in, but I assume it was the dime.
