If one bench is going nuts with excitement in the NFL then you know you’re going to see opposite scenes on the other side of the field, but it was illustrated perfectly tonight.
Cordarrelle Patterson returned the kick off for a TD to start the second half, and it was especially welcomed on the Chicago bench after they failed to get going on offence in the first half:

While the Bears bench was going overboard with excitement, Mike Zimmer was losing it on the other side-line as a clipboard went flying and some words were said.
Interestingly the script was completely flipped on the next drive as Chicago muffed a punt to give Kirk Cousins excellent field position, so it could be a very interesting second half.
