The Miami Dolphins won an offensive shootout against the Chicago Bears 35-32 to go 6-3 on the season.

Offensive spotlight: Tua Tagovailoa threw for 309 yards and three scores, recording five big-time throws and zero turnover-worthy plays in the process. If first-run grades hold, it will be another 90.0-plus PFF grade for the young quarterback. 

Defensive spotlight: Christian Wilkins added to his impressive season in run defense with two stops, a tackle for loss and three total tackles. He finished with a 70.0 run-defense grade on 29 run snaps. 

Rookie spotlight: Kyler Gordon continued his struggles in coverage. He surrendered six catches on eight targets for 63 yards and two first downs to finish with what will likely be a sub-50.0 coverage grade.

Offensive line spotlight: The Chicago Bears line surrendered 11 total pressures and allowed just one sack to finish with a 75.0 pass-blocking grade. Teven Jenkins surrendered just two pressures on 43 pass-blocking snaps.
