    Throughout Sunday’s game between the Vikings and Bears, the Soldier Field clock was malfunctioning, Seth Gruen of theChicago Sun-Times reports. That forced referee Ron Torbert to have to keep and periodically announce the time remaining in a given quarter, which left Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer angry postgame.

    “It’s another new experience,” Zimmer said. “It’s hard to know because no one is telling you how much time is left. The clocks here are bull****. The whole day it’s going out so it’s just another thing. Excuse my language.”

    The situation was particularly beneficial to the Bears on the game’s final drive. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings were attempting tie the game, but were only generally aware of how much time was left based on Torbert’s periodic announcements.
