But his opinion on what happened in the first quarter on the first-and-10 lateral from the Chicago 24, which turned into a 75-yard touchdown for the Bears after Samuel muffed it, hasn't changed after watching film. “He's got to catch that. It was well designed. The timing of it was perfect. We caught them in a positive defense for us. We had blockers initially on everybody. The next level was him and a safety. It's just unfortunate did didn't get a handle on it.''
