Early in the third quarter, with the Bears ahead 14-10, they faced a first-and-goal from the Redskins' 1-yard line. Jay Cutler tried a quarterback sneak, an acceptable call by the Bears when your quarterback is 6-foot-3, 233 pounds and has a propensity for throwing to the other team when he is within 20 yards of the goal line.

But an unacceptable call when your quarterback has fingers made of Crisco.
