The current 49ers kicker tweeted out that he was "teaching his boys about the history of Da Bears" along with a short video of his kids at Soldier Field during the team's playoff loss to the Eagles on Sunday evening. Later, the guys discussed their level of disappointment in linebacker Khalil Mack's performance and expressed their feelings about the Bears going forward.

But just a split-second before kicker Cody Parkey split the uprights with his kick, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson called a crucial time-out.

Treyvon Hester may actually be the real Eagles MVP. The missed kick, which went off the left upright and hit the crossbar, left Bears coach Matt Nagy in disbelief. "You don't know how hard this s- is", Bears tackle Charles Leno when asked what his message would be to fans who harassed Parkey. The tip by Hester was so subtle that the NBC broadcast didn't even mention it.

After the 26-year-old's massive miss, which followed his three successful kicks from 36, 29, and 34 yards to keep Chicago in the game, Parkey took full responsibility for the loss in the locker room by simply saying, "I feel bad". Tipped off my fingertips. When I saw it going in, I turned back around [away from the goal posts]. He may tried a lower angle on the re-kick to compensate for that, giving Hester the opportunity to make contact with the ball and ever so slightly affect its trajectory.
