the Chicago Bears Youth Cody Whitehair Jerseys , Brock Osweiler was the first player sprinting from the sideline onto the field in jubilation, capping an eventful day for the backup quarterback.Even his morning commute was intense."I got a little emotional driving to the stadium today, just thinking about the opportunity," Osweiler said.He excelled making his first start for Miami as a replacement for the injured Ryan Tannehill. Osweiler threw for a career-high 380 yards and three scores, and the Dolphins edged Chicago 31-28 when Jason Sanders kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired in overtime.Here are things to know about a marathon that left both teams exhausted but still in first place:STANDINGSThe Bears (3-2) remained alone atop the NFC North even though their three-game winning streak ended. They play host to New England on Sunday.The Dolphins (4-2) remained tied for first with New England in the AFC East by snapping a two-game losing streak. They play host to Detroit on Sunday.FILLING INOsweiler went 0-4 as a starter for Denver last year, but he rallied the Dolphins from an 11-point deficit with 16 minutes left in regulation. He finished 28 for 44 with no sacks and overcame two interceptions."My whole mentality was make the most of this, do whatever it takes to help your team get a win and have fun with it," he said.Coach Adam Gase said he didn't know whether Tannehill's injury was long-term. Tannehill has been nursing an injury to his throwing shoulder for several weeks, and it gradually became more of a problem in practice last week."It kind of got progressively worse as far as his ability to throw the ball the way he wanted to Cody Whitehair Jerseys Stitched ," Gase said.After Tannehill worked out before the game, it was decided he should be inactive.NOT THE GOATAs Osweiler and other teammates began to celebrate the victory, running back Kenyan Drake sank to both knees , his head bowed in gratitude and relief.Drake lost a fumble when the Dolphins were on the verge of winning in overtime. As the Bears then moved into position to try a field goal, Drake received a pep talk from Osweiler."I just said, 'Listen, they're going to miss this field goal, and I need you to bring the swagger and confidence you've been playing with all day,'" Osweiler said. "And he looked at me in the eye and he said Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jerseys Stitched , 'OK.'"The Bears' Cody Parkey did indeed miss a 53-yard attempt. Drake then made a 15-yard reception to help set up Sanders' game-winner.MISSED CHANCESIn a game with 1,008 yards of total offense, the Bears were hurt by two turnovers in the red zone. Jordan Howard lost a fumble at the 1, and Mitchell Trubisky was intercepted in the end zone by T.J. McDonald.In addition, a disputed offensive pass interference penalty on tight end Trey Burton took a Bears touchdown off the board. Trubisky's only interception of the game came on the next play.Trubisky, coming off the best game of his career two weeks ago, threw for 316 yards and three second-half scores."It was definitely a crazy game, a lot of ups and downs," he said. "That kind of roller-coaster game Youth James Daniels Jerseys , it can go either way at the end, and today it didn't go in our favor. But it is fun to be a part of those."INJURY REPORTDolphins: DE Jonathan Woodard (concussion) left the game in the second quarter. But Gase said several injured players are close to returning, including DE Cameron Wake (knee).Bears: CB Prince Amukamara (left hamstring) was hurt in the second half. All the good work the Bears did last year might have been undone, simply because of the dramatic and traumatic way in which they lost their playoff game.But Bears coach Matt Nagy was actually encouraged by the way his team has responded to losing on the double-doink field goal miss against the Eagles, which was the anticlimactic end of an otherwise brilliant season.“[It was] their response to me of saying, ‘We were going to win the Super Bowl,’ ” Nagy said, via Dan Wiederer of the . “They believed that. But now they also realize it’s not easy.”“I wasn’t sure, after a loss like that James Daniels Jerseys Stitched , how they were going to handle it,” Nagy said. “Because they are young. So are they upset and deflated and disappointed? Yeah, they are. But they were actually more positive and more [eager] to get back [to Halas Hall], which fired me up.“In that game, with the way we lost, there’s a natural reaction to almost feel sorry for yourselves as players and coaches that, ‘Man, we were so close.’ But, no Youth Eddie Goldman Jerseys , [it was], ‘We’re going to use this now as a motivation.’ That’s what’s fun to me, knowing we have guys on this team who truly care.”Nagy said his next challenge is to make sure his team did not take last year’s success for granted.“That’s going to be my biggest challenge as the head coach — to make sure there’s no complacency,” he said. “One of the fun parts in my position is being able to be creative and find ways of how do you do that. You’ve got to be motivational, but you can’t be monotonous with it.”That’s a much better concern than worrying about how to rebuild, because after going 12-4 last year, the Bears have had a taste of the success Nagy hopes becomes traditional.
