Eddy Pineiro Makes First Career Field Goal for Bears

The kicker is making his first start in the NFL


Chicago Bears kicker Eddy Pineiro is the most talked-about man in Chicago on Thursday, but he's already off to a good start in his NFL career. 

Pineiro, who is playing in his first NFL game, trotted onto the field for a 38-yard field goal attempt in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers, and much to the delight of Bears fans, things went well: 

Bears fans gave Pineiro a big round of applause, but it's possible that things may have gone to his head, as he kicked the ball out of bounds and incurred an illegal procedure penalty on the ensuing kickoff.
