Sparked by passing game, Bears retake lead in Cleveland

Alshon Jeffery AP

Two fourth-quarter TD passes from Jay Cutler have given the Bears a 31-24 lead with less than four minutes left in regulation.

The Bears tied the game on Alshon Jeffery’s 51-yard reception with 11:08 left in the fourth. On the play, Cutler threw deep for Jeffery, but the pass was a little underthrown. However, Browns safety Tashaun Gipson appeared to misjudge the ball a little. He leaped for the pass, but it eluded him, and Jeffery, who had boxed out Browns defensive back Jordan Poyer, hauled in the score to tie the game.

The Browns’ offense then went three-and-out, and a 21-yard punt return from Devin Hester gave Chicago the ball at the Cleveland 36. The Bears capitalized on the wonderful field position, and Cutler’s four-yard TD toss to Earl Bennett capped the drive and gave Chicago the lead.

The Bears would force yet another stop and are now trying to finish out a victory that would put them a half-game ahead of Detroit in the NFC North.

    I still feel bad about the referees screwing the Cleveland Browns last week.

    Glad for the win, but too many mistakes almost killed us.

    Personally I would have started McCown, but happy that the Bears pulled out the win.

    Brown’s are on the right path with current coaching staff, and front office. They are no longer the soft team they once were. they have an identity, but need a few more players and Browns are best team in that division. #12 is a STUD
