Bears edge Dolphins 27-24
CANTON, Ohio -- Rookie Kyle Orton brought a breath of fresh air to the often-stale Chicago Bears offense.
Orton riddled Miami's third-string defense on two late touchdown drives, lifting the Bears past the Dolphins 27-24 in the Hall of Fame game Monday night.
The fourth-round draft pick from Purdue connected with Carl Ford for a 43-yard score with 7:23 remaining. After Olindo Mare was short on a 54-yard field goal try, Orton guided Chicago 56 yards, keyed by a 34-yard bullet to Eddie Berlin and a third-down interference penalty by Miami's Deandre Eiland.
Zack Abron ran it in from the 4, disappointing all the Dolphins fans wearing No. 13 jerseys in the crowd of 22,292. One day earlier, former Miami quarterback Dan Marino was inducted into the Hall, along with Steve Young, Fritz Pollard and Benny Friedman.
Orton's strong performance -- 7-for-11 for 175 yards -- spoiled the debut of Nick Saban as an NFL coach and Ricky Williams' return to the Miami lineup.
Williams finished with 8 yards on five carries.
