The newly laid grass was badly waterlogged after downpours drenched Chicago earlier that morning. Hoping to mitigate the wet turf, rookie punter Trenton Gill grabbed a towel to pat down the spot where he hoped to position the ball for a field goal attempt from the 29-yard line. Instead, Gill was flagged for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
