Nick Fairley swallows up Bears two-point conversion attempt (GIF)

The Chicago Bears needed to convert a two-point conversion in order to tie up the game against the Detroit Lions late in the fourth-quarter, but they failed on the first attempt. Luckily, they were given a gift by the officials and had a second opportunity to get the ball in the endzone and tie the game, but Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley came up big and wasn’t letting the play happen.

Fairley blew his blocker off of the field and completely swallowed up Matt Forte.

This was the brilliant celebration we got as a result of the play.

The play went for a loss and the Bears would need to recover an onside kick.

Unfortunately for the Bears, their attempt failed and the Lions went on to edge them for a 21-19 win.
