Chicago police took on some of their firefighting counterparts in an annual gridiron grudge match Sunday.

The First Responders Memorial Bowl game was played at Saint Rita High School between the police

"Enforcers" and the fire department "Blaze".

Each department fielded a 60-man roster, including a handful of former college and pro players.

Bears tight end Greg Olsen served as an honorary coach, and he got some help from Brian Urlacher.

The "Enforcers" edged out the "Blaze" in overtime.

Proceeds from the game benefit the police and fire charities.
