Zach Miller just made a catch that would've made Odell Beckham Jr. proud. It also came in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter on Monday night, with the Bears trailing the Chargers by five points.
Miller, a Bears tight end, only needed one hand to bring down a Jay Cutler laser. He also reached full-extension to make the grab. And, one more thing: It ended up being the game-winning touchdown, as the Bears hung on for the 22-19 win.
Anyways, here's what will go down as a simple 25-yard touchdown in the box score. It's clearly so much more.
That catch secured the Bears' third win of the season. Unbelievably, all three wins have been against AFC West teams. Furthermore, all three of the Bears' wins have been fourth-quarter comebacks. This is actually the second time this season Cutler has dug the Bears out of a two-score, fourth-quarter deficit.

But what makes this such a feel-good story is Miller, who has dealt with some really unfortunate injury-luck in his career. Before Monday night, Miller had only played in 40 games in his six-year career.
He sure made his 41st game count.
