All statistics and snap counts are taken directly from the NFL’s Game Statistic and Information System Cheap Tarik Cohen Jersey , as we’re the snipped pics with the snap counts. The Chicago Bears lost a game that they could have, and should have, won. The Miami Dolphins kept plugging away at the Bears and they came back for a 31-28 win in overtime. Head coach and play caller, Matt Nagy, was inconsistent with his decisions. He was aggressive, but then conservative. He showed faith in his young offense, but then he got cautious. Nagy is five games into his job, and we’re going to have to deal with his growing pains too.With that being said, the offense still put up 467 yards. They still racked up 23 first downs. Their offense was 8 for 12 (67%) on third down conversions. Did they do enough to win?I guess that depends on your perspective. The Bears were shut out in the first half, there were some missed opportunities, and they only had 124 total yards in the first two quarters. Football is a 60 minute game, and if the offense was better in the first 30 minutes, there would have been no overtime. Chicago’s defensive coaches had an extra week to prepare for the ex-Bear think tank of Adam Gase (head coach), Dowell Loggains (offensive coordinator), and Jeremiah Washburn (o-line coach) Cheap Roquan Smith Jersey , yet they couldn’t figure out a way to slow down the Dolphins’ offense. The Dolphins sent extra help to their tackles and the Bears only manged 4 quarterback hits, and zero sacks. With so much extra attention going to Chicago's edges, where was the inside blitz? The heat and humidity got to the Bears (more on that later), and Chicago allowed 541 yards in the game. Miami also picked up 23 first downs while converting on 8 of 17 third down tries (47%). The Fins had the time of possession edge 36:35 to 33:25. The Bears were flagged 6 times for 58 yards, while the Dolphins got hit with 7 penalties for 67 yards. None of which were offensive holding. Let’s take a closer look at the playing time break downs for the Bears, and also some individual stats.OFFENSEThe playing time trend for Jordan Howard continues to shrink. The heat could have been a factor, but we won’t know until this next Sunday when the Bears host the New England Patriots. If it shrinks again, that’s a problem. Howard had 14 rushes for 69 yards, and a crucial fumble on the goal line. Tarik Cohen also had a crucial fumble in the game, but he also had a rushing TD on 5 runs for 31 yards. He caught 7 of 9 targets for 90 yards. The other Bears’ turnover was a Mitchell Trubisky red zone interception on a horrible decision, but if you’re looking to blame this loss on him, then you might have some built-in biases that is leading you to an idiotic conclusion. He ended up throwing 31 passes while completing 22 of them for 316 yards and 3 TDs for a passer rating of 122.5. He fought back after a slow start (9 of 14 for 89 yards), which is what you need your quarterback to do. Trubisky completed 5 passes to Allen Robinson II and 5 to Taylor Gabriel. Robinson had 64 yards and a TD, while Gabriel had 110 yards. Gabriel also added a 9 yard run. Rookie wide out Anthony Miller was targeted 4 times and he caught one for a 29 yard TD. Tight end Trey Burton caught Trubisky’s other TD on a shovel pass. He had 4 receptions for 23 yards. Right tackle Bobby Massie was flagged twice for an illegal formation, but if you’re blaming him for those flags then you might be football-stupid. The Bears allowed 2 sacks Cheap Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , and 3 QB hits, and their overall yards per carry average was 5.3.DEFENSESo this happened yesterday...Could it be possible that this (Jahns’ tweet below) had an affect on that (Bowen’s tweet above)?I think so. Miami had 387 total yards in the second half and 154 total in the first. All that YAC helped Miami’s Brock Osweiler to a 94.9 passer rating. Roquan Smith led the Bears with 13 tackles. Fellow inside backer Danny Trevathan had 8 and a QBH. Leonard Floyd had 4 tackles, and 2 penalties. One for throwing a receiver to the ground that didn’t want to be tackled, and the another for grazing Osweilers helmet. Khalil Mack hurt his ankle early, and he ended up with 2 tackles.Defensive end Akiem Hicks, who finished with 7 tackles, 1 QBH, and a forced fumble, played too many snaps in my opinion. In that heat, at his size, that number should have been south of 75%. Eddie Goldman had 2 tackles and a fumble recovery and Jonathan Bullard had 3 tackles. Bilal Nichols had a tackle and Roy Robertson-Harris had a pass defended. Corner Kyle Fuller had 2 interceptions and 7 tackles. Prince Amukamara, who left after re-injuring his hammy, had 2 tackles, and nickleback Bryce Callahan had 7 tackles, a tackle for loss Youth Cody Parkey Jersey , and a QBH. Safety Adrian Amos had 9 tackles and a pass defended, and Eddie Jackson had 6 tackles. SPECIAL TEAMSThe above players listed only appeared in the third phase. Cody Parkey missed one kick on the afternoon; a 53 yard field goal in overtime. Pat O’Donnell punted twice for a 39.5 average and he put one inside the 20 yard line.

Antonio Gates.Over the years, there have been several undrafted free agents who have left indelible marks on the game of football. Despite not being seen as worthy enough of an NFL Draft selection, these players have overcome the odds and have gone on to become successful NFL players.Over the past few weeks, I’ve taken a look at 10 of the undrafted free agents that the Chicago Bears signed this offseason to try and determine who stands the best chance of making it to the 53-man roster. In this article, we’re diving into the player who finishes No. 2 on my list: Ryan Nall.BackgroundNall had a prolific career at Oregon State, as his 2,216 rushing yards is the eighth-best total in school history. He has a career yards-per-carry average of 5.8, which ties for the highest average, and his 24 touchdowns in the seventh-best total. Nall started off his collegiate career as a tight end, scoring three touchdowns and tallying 564 yards from scrimmage as a freshman in 2015, although most of his production came as a runner. He moved to running back the following year and ran for 951 yards and 13 touchdowns on 147 carries. He followed that up with 810 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 2017 on 165 carries. Nall proved to be a receiving threat, as well, catching 56 passes for 563 yards and four touchdowns with Oregon State. Nall attended Central Catholic High School in Portland Youth Eddie Goldman Jersey , Oregon, where he shined as a first-team all-state player at both running back and linebacker as a senior. He ran for 1,684 yards and 22 touchdowns in his senior year, resulting in his being named the Oregon Sports Awards Prep Football Player of the Year. He led his team to their first state championship victory in 60 years and was also a member of the basketball team.Skill setThere are a handful of cut-ups of Nall, including his outing against Stanford from last season:One of Nall’s biggest selling points in making the Bears’ 53-man roster is his versatility. With experience at running back, fullback and H-back tight end, he can be used in a lot of different ways and offers play calling flexibility. The six-foot-two, 237-pound back has a muscular frame and is built to take punishing hits at the next level. He has a strong lower body and good balance, and he isn’t afraid to lower his shoulder to pick up extra yards.Nall is more than just a bull in a china shop, though, as he has impressive athleticism for his size and has good breakaway speed. He has good inside ball-carrier vision and hits the hole hard as a downhill runner. He also has smooth hands and is a solid route runner, giving him value as a receiver in addition to his running ability.Nall isn’t the most agile of running backs, however. He can be a bit stiff-hipped when he runs, and he doesn’t have the ability to bounce outside of the tackles when plays blow up inside. The former Beaver will have to prove himself as a reliable blocker if he wants to secure a role as a fullback, as he didn’t do much blocking in college.Chances of making the 53-man rosterRyan Nall is no lock to make the active roster , but he definitely has a shot to make it. With the Bears already having the likes of Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen and Benny Cunningham on the roster, Nall’s chances bank on whether or not the team will choose to add a fourth running back to the roster. He could also be brought on as the team’s fullback, but that depends on if Chicago will even keep a fullback. Even if they do, then he will have to fight with four-year veteran Michael Burton to make the roster. Given his skill set, youth and versatility, though, an argument could be made that Nall would be the better choice in that scenario. Overall, the rookie has about a 50/50 chance of making the 53-man roster.Jacob Infante is a Chicago Bears writer at SB Nation’s Windy City Gridiron.
