Fog Bowl

During the Fog Bowl, a NFC divisional playoff game in 1988, no one won. In the second quarter, a heavy, dense fog rolled over Soldier Field, limiting the vision of both the fans and the players. Play continued, but players from both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears complained that they had trouble seeing the first-down markers. Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham had a career day with 407 passing yards, but, perhaps because he couldn't see it, was unable to find the end zone. Though no one saw it, the Bears were victorious 20-12.
