Eddy Pineiro sends great tweet after nailing game-winning field goal

Eddy Pineiro

Eddy Pineiro sent a great tweet shortly after kicking the Chicago Bears to a victory over the Denver Broncos.

When the Broncos took a 14-13 lead with just 31 seconds remaining in regulation, odds were stacked against the Bears. However, a Mitchell Trubisky pass to Allen Robinson put the Bears in field goal range with just one second left on the clock. Pineiro came on to convert a 53-yard field goal to prevent the Bears from falling to 0-2 on the season.

Following the game, Pineiro, who is in his first season as the Bears’ kicker, took to social media to sum up the emotions after his big moment.

The Bears and their fans endured heartbreak last year as a result of performances by kickers. Pineiro stepping up on Sunday wasn’t lost on one of the team’s stars, Khalil Mack.

It looks for now like the Bears have found themselves a kicker.
