Bears Vs. Chargers Score Update: Defense Keys Fifth Consecutive Victory

The combination of an efficient effort from Jay Cutler and a dominant performance from the defensive unit proved to be enough to lead the Chicago Bears to a convincing 31-20 victory over the reeling San Diego Chargers.

Cutler continued his solid play in the win over San Diego, completing 18/31 for 286 yards and 2 TD's. Cutler hooked up with Johnny Knox and Kellen Davis for TD passes and also scored on a one yard TD run. With Matt Forte and Marion Barber struggling to get anything going, Cutler completed throws to eight different receivers.

The Bears defense was simply remarkable in the second half, dominating the Chargers offense following a TD throw from Philip Rivers to Vincent Jackson early in the third quarter. The defense intercepted Rivers twice in the final quarter, and in one of the most amazing stats you will ever see, held the Chargers to 0 total yards in the fourth quarter.

Chicago will look to pick up its sixth consecutive victory when it hosts Oakland on Sunday. The Chargers will hope to end their five-game losing streak when they host Denver in a key AFC West matchup on Sunday.
