And if that's the case then we are pretty good.
When you control the game and keep the time of possession to almost one quarter in your favor, that's pretty good.
Tannehill proved all of us who have said that you have to start him through this season correct. He looked real good today and despite a few sacks the O Line kept the Bears at a distance.
Philbin pleasantly surprised me when faced with a 4th and 1 after Miller was tackled just shy of the first down and knowing he was going to call a time out to organize the offense before going for the first down, he dropped the challenge flag, killing 2 birds with one stone.
That not only gave us a slim chance of having the spot overruled but it also gave us an extended time out to figure out what we wanted to run.
And run we did, as Tannehill took off on the read option for 30 yards and a first down.
However, with 2:30 left in the game, as we were running out the clock inside the Bears' 20 yard line, I thought Philbin missed another opportunity to use a challenge.
We have the ball 2nd and goal from the Bears' 12 yard line and Tannehill hits Landry who is driven out if bounds at the 1 yard line stopping the clock.
The instant replay from the endzone camera looked as if Landry's knee touched down inbounds before he fell out of bounds.
Had he challenged that and the call was upheld, we would have lost a time out that we really didn't need and the clock was stopped anyway.
But if it was ruled that Landry was tackled inbounds, we could have run the clock down to the 2 minute warning.
I thought that was worth challenging as it would not have cost us anything and given us more time to talk about our next play.
We had too many tickie tack penalties called against us but luckily they didn't come back to haunt us.
So its off to Jacksonville on Sunday and luckily they won today because who likes to play a team who hasn't won yet.
