Give blood, save a life, meet a Bear
DeKALB – A quarter of a century later, it is still known as “the punt,” one of the most famous plays in Chicago Bears history.
Midway through the first quarter of the 1986 playoff game at Soldier Field, Giants’ punter Sean Landeta dropped back to punt deep in his own end zone. Whether a gust of wind caught the ball, as he later claimed, or it simply went off the side of his foot, the punt only traveled five yards. Scooping it up, Bears’ cornerback Shaun Gayle ran it in for the shortest punt return for a touchdown in NFL history.
The Bears went on to win both that game and eventually the Super Bowl, the only one in franchise history.
