Dolphins Beat Bears 35 to 32
The Miami Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears in a hard-fought game. Miami for the most part played well throughout the game on offense. But, the defense had a difficult time stopping Justin Fields as he ran all over the field. The final score was 35 to 32. A good offensive display but lack of defense was seen by both teams.
Dolphins Travel to the Windy City to Beat the Bears
The Dolphins’ receivers beat the Bears all game as they found open spaces in the defense of Chicago. Tua looked to Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle once again to get the offense moving. Hill, after nine games, has already gone over the 1,000 receiving yards for the season. Waddle and Hill were both on the receiving end of touchdown throws from Tua Tagovailoa.
Tagovailoa was sharp in this game. Yes, he had a couple of throws that he wishes he could have back. Yet, it is difficult to knock the QB play after this one. Tagovailoa was 21/30 with 302 yards as well as three touchdown passes. Once again Hill had over 100 yards receiving. He had 7 catches for 143 yards.
Jeff Wilson quickly made an impact for the Dolphins as they beat the Bears. Wilson was on the receiving end of a TD pass from Tagovailoa. Miami traded for Wilson on the trade deadline day.
The Miami Dolphins’ defense could not stop Fields but still helped in beating the Bears. Fields put up 178 yards of rushing against Miami. Yes, that is an NFL record for rushing yards for a QB. He also did damage via the air with 3 TD passes. But, it will be the rushing yards that will long be talked about by Bears fans.
The Dolphins finally got a sack toward the end of the contest. Melvin Ingram had the honors of getting the sack. It put the Bears in a tough situation for their style of offense.
Dolphins Benefit on Some Questionable Calls to Hold to Beat the Bears
The Dolphins benefited on offense from perhaps a questionable pass interference call on the Bears. Which resulted in Miami getting a first down. Yet, the biggest break was a no-call when it appeared that Keion Crossen had interfered with Chase Claypool. If called, it would have put the Bears in scoring territory.
The good news for Miami fans is that the Dolphins beat the Bears in a tough road environment. Calls go both ways during a season, and Miami took advantage of it. Good teams find a way to win. The Dolphins won!
Special Teams TD!
The Miami Dolphins special teams have not been so special this year. From missed field goals to allowing a kickoff return for a touchdown to not having any big returns. But, today that changed. Jaelan Phillips blocked a Bears punt. Then Andrew Van Ginkel scooped the ball up and went it in for a touchdown!
