Chicago 48, Tampa Bay 10 – Jeff Joniak on WBBN as Tyler Gabriel catches another three yard touchdown pass to give the Bears a 48-10 lead over the Buccaneers. (6th TD pass by Mitch Trubisky ties Johnny Lujack). Bears beat the Bucs 48-10.

Houston 37, Indianapolis 34 – Mark Vandermeer on the call on Sports Radio 610 as Ka'imi Fairbairn hits the game winning field goal from 37 yards out to give the Texas a 37-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Why did Colts coach Frank Reich opt to go for it on fourth down from his own 43-yard line with 24 seconds left in overtime -- and why throw the ball?

That decision led to an Andrew Luck incompletion on fourth-and-4 that set the table for Houston's game-winning field goal in Sunday's 37-34 thriller over the Colts.

"I felt that we had a good drive there at the end and then just came up short," Reich said after the game. "I'll just address it now: I'm not playing to tie. I'll do that 10 times out of 10. That's just the way it's got to roll."

For what it's worth, Luck agreed -- strongly -- with his coach's aggressive play-calling.
