WR Albert Wilson proving how important he is to Dolphins offense

Their odds to win increased when the Miami Dolphins announced that injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill wouldn't play and would be replaced by Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler completed 28 of 44 passes for a career-high 380 yards with three touchdowns despite two interceptions against the Bears - a team he has ironically beaten in his first start with the Texans, Broncos and Dolphins during his career. Yet in the end, it was the Dolphins that came out victorious in a wild game.

In the closing minutes of regulation, however, both teams forgot to play defense at the worst time: first when the Bears' Anthony Miller had a 29-yard touchdown, and then on the very next play when the Bears surrendered a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown to Albert Wilson.

The ultimate irony, I suppose, is that the two matchups that appeared to most favor the Bears - the Dolphins' wounded offensive line against the Bears dominating defensive front and Miami's equally shorthanded defensive front against the Bears' offensive line - are where Miami dominated. This kept the Bears shut out through the first half. They nearly got a touchdown late in the second quarter, but Jordan Howard fumbled on the goal line to stall the drive. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky hit Trey Burton and Allen Robinson for scores on back-to-back drives.

Bears: CB Prince Amukamara left in the second half with a hamstring injury. He made the most of it, setting the Dolphins up for their own game-winning field goal attempt moments later. After a Trubisky pick in the endzone following a Bears' touchdown getting called back, Osweiler led the Dolphins downfield for the tie as he threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Albert Wilson, then a two-point conversion throw to Kenny Stills to tie it at 21.

Whatever took place, Corker said, "there was Saudi involvement" and "everything points to them". Turkish officials refused to comment on the veracity of the report, the AFP reported.

Wilson earlier scored on a 43-yard catch and run.

The Dolphins looked as though they had the result cinched much earlier into the overtime period.

Kicker Jason Sanders turned teammate Kenyan Drake's fumble into a footnote.

The visiting Bears were marching down the field and in position to win the game with a field goal. The Dolphins converted a two-point try to even the game at 21.

Chicago's O-line had a awful first half, allowing Mitch Trubisky to be sacked twice and blocking for just 48 rushing yards on 15 attempts, a 3.2-yard average.
