John Fox's Challenge Inadvertently Causes a Bears Turnover

It's right there, on page 65 in the NFL's 2017 rule book.

Fox immediately challenged the play, arguing it should have been a touchdown since the ball hit the pylon prior to Cunningham's foot hitting out of bounds. Chicago quarterback Mitchell Trubisky tossed a short screen pass to running back Benny Cunningham, who then weaved his way through traffic before diving toward the end zone.

Bears coach John Fox just inadvertently gave the Packers the football.

The Bears challenged the call, believing he scored.

Officials ruled that Cunningham lost the ball and fumbled it through the pylon, resulting in a touchback. Former NFL V.P. of Officiating Dean Blandino said he didn't think there was enough evidence to change the ruling on the field. And even though it wasn't part of the original challenge, Riveron reversed the ruling. Not only did the Bears not score, the ruling actually turned the ball over to the Packers instead if giving it to the Bears on 1st-and-goal.

Again, I'm not certain if Cunningham's fumble was obvious. But if you want to describe a worse-case replay scenario - seek a touchdown, get stuck with a turnover - that one was it. Or something like that.
