Against the Carolina Panthers' division rival Atlanta Falcons on Halloween weekend last season, both teams fought tooth and nail. The game came down to the wire and eventually ended in an overtime loss for the Panthers.
But not after freshly signed Chicago Bears' D.J. Moore and P.J. Walker connected for a sweet Hail Mary pass with seconds ticking down in regulation.
Moore's extension over two defenders from a deep, yet strikingly accurate ball from Walker will be etched in the history books from the 2022 season.
While the two connected for a sweet game-tying touchdown with seconds to go, they lost in overtime. Nonetheless, Walker threw for an impressive 317 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Moore being Moore, he caught for 152 yards on six catches and one touchdown.
Moore spoke well of Walker on Thursday, as he became the second Panther from the 2022 team to join the Bears alongside Moore.
How does Walker's arrival to Chicago help Moore?
"Helps bridge the gap between being uncomfortable moving because I've been in a stagnant place for so long," Moore said Thursday. "But now it's just good because I know, P.J. We got a good connection, a good relationship outside of football. So that's even better for both of us."
The Bears signed another Carolina Panther to the team on Thursday, too. They added veteran running back D'Onta Foreman to the team on a one-year deal. Now, the Bears have three Panthers from last season.
And the aforementioned play points to good company from Carolina.
