Apparently all you need now is one breakout game to have an entire month decreed in your honor.

Enter Brocktober.

The craze swept Miami when backup quarterback Brock Osweiler stepped in admirably for Ryan Tannehill last week and delivered a career-high 380 passing yards and three touchdowns en route to a thrilling overtime victory over the Bears at home.

But let’s emphasize something: It was one game. And it involved catching Chicago off-guard, as Osweiler was anointed as the starter only shortly before kickoff. (In fact, the league is investigating Miami’s handling of the injury report regarding Tannehill’s status).

Surely that played a role in Osweiler’s effective outing opposite a normally stout Bears defense that couldn’t have been as well-prepared.

Osweiler won’t have that luxury this week, which could spell trouble for the 2012 second-round draft choice who will be facing a coach who has enjoyed success against him in the past.
