CHICAGO - Apparently, the refs were right?
It was a strange circumstance at the end of the first half, when the officials ruled a deep ball to Anthony Miller incomplete after Cre'Von LeBlanc ripped the ball free.
There was a review and the official on the field said there was no clear recovery, so the ruling would stand. That seems strange, because that basically admits it's a completed pass but the ball doesn't advance. It's almost sounds like,"Hey, we don't know what to do here, so forget it ever happened."

But apparently that was the correct call:
Instant replay was correct in staying with incomplete pass. In order to go from incomplete to catch and fumble is if there is a clear recovery by either team or if the ball goes out of bounds. Case book plays 15.114 and 15.115.— Mike Pereira (@MikePereira) January 6, 2019
The Bears ended up kicking a field goal at the end of the first half to take a 6-3 lead into the locker room. Strange play.
