Following a 22-yard pass from quarterback Rex Grossman (8) to wide receiver Muhsin Muhammad (87), the Bears lined up at their 38-yard line for a first down. Trailing 22-17 with 11 minutes 59 seconds remaining in the game, Grossman attempted to go back to the 11th-year receiver, but the outcome was quite different. After taking the snap, Grossman took a two-step drop, faked a pass to Muhammad and then tossed a wobbler toward the wide receiver, who was streaking down the right sideline. The pass was intercepted by Kelvin Hayden (26) at the Colts 44-yard line, and the cornerback returned the ball 56 yards for a touchdown. The Bears challenged the play, contending that Hayden had stepped out of bounds, but the ruling on the field was upheld, giving the Colts an 11-point lead.
