Marion Barber Backflip Fail: Bears RB Face Plants After Scoring Touchdown Against Panthers (VIDEO)

After watching Devin Hester make NFL history with an incredible punt return touchdown earlier in the game and celebrate by completing three somersaults, Bears running back Marion Barber tried to pull off a similar touchdown celebration in the fourth quarter after he put his team up 34-23. Barber attempted a backflip in the end zone, but he ended up falling flat on his face and jogged back to the sideline as his teammates got a nice laugh.

"That was a nice faceplant for him,” said running back Matt Forte after Chicago's 34-29 win. "That’ll be all over ESPN"

Maybe Barber will just spike it next time.
