Tonight's Monday Night Football pitted two of the NFL's lower ranked teams against each other as the Chicago Bears travelled to the San Diego Chargers.
Chicago came away with the 22-19 win after some very late drama on the Charger's final drive of the game.
Both teams lost key players in week eight with star runningback Matt Forte of Chicago and San Diego's Keenan Allen both suffering long term injuries.

Everyone was wondering just how the teams would respond to their respective losses but it clearly Chicago who recovered best.
Not only did Chicago get their first win in three games, they found a new star at runningback in Jeremy Langford.
Langford had a total of 142 yards from scrimmage tonight with 72 rushing and 70 receiving with one rushing touchdown.
With everyone questioning how Langford would do in the void left by Forte, he did not disappoints as he had a huge game.
Danny Woodhead tried his best to match Langford for the Chargers but fell about 40 yards short and saw his side suffer a fifth straight loss.
Langford may have shone at runningback for Chicago, but wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had a night to remember too as he had 151 scoreless receiving yards.
It looked like it was going to be one of those nights for the Bears and quarterback Jay Cutler when he threw a second quarter pick six.
It looked like they were destined for a long night but managed to pull it back and on San Diego's final drive as they tried to move into field goal range, Chicago were able to drive them all the way back to a 4th and 23 and their own 41 yard line.
Chicago now face a tough trip to the St Louis Rams next week to face a very tough defense who will test their new runningback.
San Diego however face a home game against the Kansas City Chiefs who are fresh off of their trip to London and their bye week.
