LOOK: It's so cold in Chicago that a decal flies off the helmet of a Bears player

It wasn't quite as cold in Chicago as expected for Sunday's matchup against the Packers.

But the conditions were still frigid (12 degrees, wind chills between minus-10 and minus-25), and not meant for outdoor activities. But the game must go on, as they say, even when it includes the hapless Bears. But you know what wasn't sticking around? That iconic "C" decal on the side of the Bears' helmet -- it had enough and called it a day.

This isn't a euphemism for the season.

That's Joe Thomas making the play on Ka'Deem Carey and his helmet.

In the future, perhaps the logo can take a page out of the playbook of Bears quarterback Matt Barkley and wear a wet suit to combat the conditions.

As it turned out, the Bears made a fine comeback but lost on the last play of the game as Green Bay came away with a 30-27 victory.
