Look: NFL Player's Flop Goes Viral Thursday Night

Bears player flops vs. Commanders.

The first half of the Thursday Night Football game between the Chicago Bears and Washington Commanders hasn't provided a lot of scoring.

But it's still given us a few entertaining moments, including one of the funniest flops of the 2022 season.

Bears offensive lineman Sam Mustipher got into a shoving match with Commanders defensive lineman Daron Payne. When Payne shoved back, he did his best acting job in an effort to draw a penalty, flailing his arms and falling to the turf.

Mustipher did not succeed in drawing a flag. And the Bears did not succeed in taking advantage of their trip to the red zone, turning the ball over on downs.

You have to respect the effort, though.
