DETROIT -- Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears held on late against turnover-prone Detroit. Now, the waiting begins. Cutler threw for 257 yards and a touchdown and helped seal the game with a late scramble, and Chicago kept its playoff hopes alive -- for now -- with a 26-24 win over the Lions on Sunday. The Bears (10-6) still need a Minnesota loss to Green Bay to reach the postseason. The win by Chicago eliminated the defending champion New York Giants from the playoff picture.
