Eddy Pineiro wins Bears' kicking job

Eddy Pineiro wins Bears' kicking job After an offseason of intrigue, the Chicago Bears have their kicker. Coach Matt Nagy announced Sunday that Eddy Pineiro had won the Bears’ kicking job and will serve in that role to start the regular season. 

PFT has confirmed that the Bears have acquired kicker Eddy Pineiro in a trade with the Raiders. If Pineiro does make the team, it will be his first chance to kick in a regular season game . He signed with the Raiders after going undrafted out of Florida last season and landed on injured reserve when the

The stakes weren’t nearly as high on Sunday, but the Chicago Bears found a hero in a kicker.

His name is Eddy Pineiro.

The rookie kicker split the uprights on a game-winning 53-yard field goal as time expired against the Denver Broncos. The 16-14 victory on the road didn’t exactly exorcise the demons of last season’s heartbreaking playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that saw Cody Parkey’s would-be game-winner bounce off the left upright and crossbar.

Bears ' Eddy Pineiro : Perfect in opener. Pineiro has now missed two consecutive preseason games due to a groin injury. In his stead, Mike Nugent has converted three of four field goal attempts for the Raiders, but missed his only attempt from over 40 yards.

But it certainly helps.

Chaos, controversy in game’s final moments

Pineiro’s kick capped a chaotic sequence in the final moments of Sunday’s game that saw the Broncos take the lead on a gusty two-point conversion along with multiple miscues, penalties and controversial calls.

Here’s how it went down.

Trailing 13-6 with 31 seconds remaining, Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco lofted a beauty of a pass over the head of Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller into the outstretched hands of Emmanuel Sanders who snagged the ball and landed in bounds in the back right corner of the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown.

Broncos gamble, screw up, gamble again

Faced with a chance to play for overtime or take the lead in the game’s final minutes, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio chose to roll the dice. Flacco led the Broncos offense on to the field for the go-ahead two-point conversion.

But they didn’t get the play off on time. The play clock ran out, and the Broncos were flagged for a five-yard delay-of-game penalty.

With the ball now at the 7-yard line instead of the 2, Denver opted then to kick an extra point. Except veteran kicker Brandon McManus missed.

The sixth-year Broncos kicker pushed the extra point wide right, and the Bears had the ball and a 13-12 lead with 31 seconds remaining — or so it appeared.

As the Bears sideline celebrated, officials announced that Chicago cornerback Buster Skrine was offside on the play.

The Broncos had another chance at the 2-yard line. And they reverted to their original plan of going for two.

Jubilation at Mile High

Flacco once again found Sanders — this time streaking across the front of the end zone — to convert the two-point conversion and take a 14-13 lead. The Broncos and fans at Mile High celebrated what seemed a sure victory.

Remember: Pineiro has yet to kick a field goal against a true live rush in a game that actually McElwain said Pineiro was “begging” him for the additional field goal attempts on Friday night. Agree that our enthusiasm over Pineiro has to be viewed in the context of last year’s place kicking nightmare.

But the chaos was just beginning.

Last chance for Bears

The Bears started their final possession on the 25-yard line with 31 seconds remaining after a touchback.

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky found Trey Burton in the flat for a short gain on first down that didn’t add much to Chicago’s chances of winning. But there was a flag on the play.

Controversial roughing call

Broncos defensive end Bradley Chubb was flagged for roughing the passer on a call that was far from clear cut. Chubb hit Trubisky as soon as he released the ball. He landed on Trubisky with his body weight, which appeared to be the impetus for the controversial call.

After a pair of incompletions from their own 45-yard line and a penalty for too many men on the field, the Bears were in true desperation mode, facing fourth-and-15 from their own 40 with nine seconds remaining.

Pineiro's 53-yard field goal lifts Bears past Broncos 16-14

Pineiro's 53-yard field goal lifts Bears past Broncos 16-14 DENVER (AP) — Eddy Pineiro kicked a 53-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Chicago Bears a wild 16-14 win over the Broncos and their former defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, whose gutsy 2-point call 31 seconds earlier had given Denver the lead. The Broncos (0-2) thought time had expired when Mitchell Trubisky stepped up and threw a 25-yard pass to Allen Robinson on fourth-and-15 from his 40-yard line. Robinson was tackled at the Denver 35 by Chris Harris Jr. The clock showed all zeroes and both teams milled around on the field not knowing whether to celebrate a win or lament a loss.

Bears ' Eddy Pineiro : Perfect in opener. Pineiro 's field goal resulted in the first points of the NFL season, and the successful kick brought quite an eruption from the Chicago crowd with the Soldier Field faithful trying to put the memory of Cody Parkey behind Broncos Stadium at Mile High Denver, Colo.

Does time run out?

Trubisky took the shotgun snap and found Allen Robinson deep downfield for a 25-yard gain to the Denver 35. Robinson fell to the turf, and the clock read zero. Denver appeared to have won the game.

But the officials came out once again and signaled that there was time left. Trubisky had signaled for a timeout as soon as Robinson hit the ground.

After huddling, officials determined that he called the timeout with one second remaining, giving the Bears one last chance to win the game.

Pineiro the hero

They then put that chance on the right foot of Pineiro, who pointed to the sky, lined up the kick and pushed the ball through uprights in the thin Denver air as time ran out, crushing the hopes of a just-jubilant Denver crowd while sending his teammates onto the field in celebration.

There was no flag this time. Game over. Bears win.

It wasn’t how they drew it up. It came on the heels of a second straight ugly game from their offense that saw Trubisky average 4.4 yards per attempt en route to 120 passing yards.
