It looked bleak when Ryan Tannehill was listed as inactive yesterday and many were already chalking it up as a loss. But Brock Osweiler stepped in and played a great game to help defeat the Chicago Bears in overtime. Albert Wilson made two big game changing plays which resulted in touchdowns and Frank Gore continues to turn back the clock as the 35 year old put up 101 yards against the best defense in the league. On the first drive of overtime, the offense drove it down the field only for it to end in heartbreak as Kenyan Drake fumbled at the one yard line. But Jason Sanders had his back as the rookie kicker had ice in veins after kicking the game winning field goal as time expired in overtime.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
