Bears quarterback Jay Cutler missed the final possession of the second quarter after he was violently taken down by Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Cutler returned to lead Chicago to a field goal on the opening possession of the third quarter to extend his team's lead to 13-0. Cutler finished the game 16-of-31 passing for 150 yards and one touchdown.
