Matt Nagy livid after knocked down referee ruins trick play
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy was livid after the officials ruined his trick play attempt before halftime on Sunday night.
The Bears had a 4th-and-1 at their 46-yard line in a 6-6 game with the Los Angeles Rams. They sent their punt team on, but then they had a massive shift where they sent off the punt team to replace them with their offense. It was a clear attempt to deceive the Rams before going for the first down.
Unfortunately for Chicago, the referees stopped the play because an official was knocked down by a Bears player running onto the field during the massive substitutions.

The Bears ended up punting the ball away after their play was screwed up.
Nagy was absolutely furious, telling the officials he had warned them about the play and blaming them for the problems. He was dropping a bunch of F-bombs on the sideline.
