Final: Bears 24, Bengals 21

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton opened the game with an early interception, which Chicago capitalized on with a touchdown pass from Jay Cutler to Martellus Bennett.

After a slow start, Dalton and Co. were able to get things together and respond after a 42-yard completion to A.J. Green, followed by a two-yard touchdown to Green. The duo wasn't done, as Green and Dalton hooked up again a few drives later for another score.

Cincinnati took the opening drive of the half all the way down the field and punched in a touchdown courtesy of a BenJarvus Green-Ellis touchdown. Chicago would respond with a long drive of its own to start the third quarter, capped by a Matt Forte touchdown.

Ultimately Chicago would prevail after a touchdown pass from Culter to Brandon Marshall. Mental mistakes doomed the Bengals in the final quarter on the road.
