Dolphins defeat Bears in overtime with 47-yard field goal

The Dolphins escaped Sunday’s matchup against the Bears with a 31-28 victory in overtime as rookie Jason Sanders kicked a 47-yard field goal. 

The Bears had a chance to score in overtime, but Cody Parkey missed a 53-yard field goal attempt that went wide right with 1:55 seconds remaining in overtime. The Bears also turned the ball over twice. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw an interception in the end zone and running back Jordan Howard fumbled the ball at the goal line. 

Even though the Dolphins walked away with the win, Miami had another chance to score earlier in overtime. The Dolphins were close to scoring on third down at the 1-yard line when running back Kenyan Drake fumbled. 

The Dolphins’ victory came behind Brock Osweiler, who threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns in relief of Ryan Tannehill, who missed the game with an injury. 

The Dolphins are now 3-0 this season at home for the first time since 2002. Miami improves to 4-2 on the season, while the Bears fall 3-2.
