The Chicago Bears simply made a couple more plays when it counted than the Baltimore Ravens did, coming away with a wild 27-24 overtime win.

Well, I’m not sure what most of that was, but Chicago Bears just helped Mitch Trubisky pick up his first career win on the road over the Baltimore Ravens 27-24 on a walk-off Connor Barth field goal in overtime.

Actually, I’ll amend that. I know exactly what the Bears defense was doing: dominating.

After managing just three takeaways coming into this game (and no interceptions), the Bears defense went full mid-2000s mode on Joe Flacco and the Ravens, recovering a fumble and picking off two passes.

And Adrian Amos?!? What a moment for your first career interception (and a pick-six at that)!

To be sure, the Bears needed every bit of that defensive amazingness because John Fox and Dowell Loggains weren’t even remotely interested in crafting a real offensive gameplan.

But that’s not to say that Trubisky, Jordan Howard and Co. didn’t give us anything worth talking about. On the contrary, that last drive featured two enormous plays by arguably the Bears’ two best offensive players.

Let’s get into some quick highlights.
