    The Bears started this one out strong, making it look like it could be a potential blowout. That wasn't the case though, as the Bucs really adjusted in the second half to keep the game close.

    Jay Cutler had his best game of the season, throwing for 4 TD's, all in the first half. The Bears got the scoring started with an 8 yd TD pass from Cutler to HB Matt Forte over the middle. The Bears would add another score mid-way through the second when Cutler found WR Devin Hester on a slant in single coverage. He broke a tackle then took it in for a 32 yard TD.

    The Bucs would answer though, as the Bears defense completely fell asleep. QB Josh Freeman found Kellen Winslow literally standing in place in the middle of the field. Winslow was so wide open that he then easily ran into the endzone for a 66 yard TD. The Bears answered that though on their very next drive, with Jay Cutler finding WR Johnny Knox on a corner route that went 52 yards for a TD. The Bucs would kick a 39 yd FG with 23 seconds left in the half to make it 21-10, which most people though would be the halftime score, but it wasn't. The Bucs squibbed, giving the ball to the Bears on their own 39 yard line and the Bears saw an opportunity. Cutler completed 4 straight passes, eventually hooking up with TE Kellen Davis for a 3 yd TD with 1 second left in the half, to make it 28-10.

    The second half saw Freeman hit WR Arrelious Benn for 2 long TD's of 41 and 62 yards, but it wouldn't be enough, as the Bears added a 38 yard FG and a 2 yd TD run by Chester Taylor to keep control of the game and win this one 38-24. GG and thanks for subbing Cena.
