The Chicago Bears defeated the Cleveland Browns 38-31 on the back of two Jay Cutler touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. He finished the game 22-of-31 for 265 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.

After a very shaky start, Cutler recovered and made his head coach Marc Trestman look like a genius for starting him this week.

More importantly, the Bears improve to 8-6 and are still alive in their push to win the NFC North.

The Browns, on the other hand, fall to 4-10 on the season and will have so many regrets when the year is over. The last three weeks the Browns have let fourth-quarter leads slip away. Their defense, which has been good at times, was exposed as a weak unit down the stretch.

The Bears will travel to Philadelphia next week while the Browns will head to New York to take on the Jets.
