Forte cuts around the end and gets the first and the Bears are across midfield. A long ball to Hester goes incomplete and Forte runs past the blitzing Jets and goes all the way to the 16 yard line.

Chester Taylor gets a yard. Matt Forte is the first 100 yard rusher against Rex Ryan as a head coach. second down and Jay Cutler is tackled behind the line of scrimmage for a loss. There's an injured Jet on the field, so they're forced to take a timeout.

Third and 11, and a risky pass in the end zone goes incomplete.

Robbie Gould misses from 35, and the score remains 38-34.

 If the Bears score again, it will be the first time they've scored 40+ points in consecutive games, since 1948.

Third and one, and Tony Richardson again falls over the pile for the first. On first down Braylon Edwards can't haul in the Brad Smith pass. Sanchez comes back in, and gets nine on a pass to Greene.

From the 39, Shonn Greene gets four yards up the gut. Nick roach and Brian Urlacher pressure Sanchez who has to throw it away.  Third and six and Charles Tillman breaks up the pass.

The Jets show punt, and a 25 yard punt puts it inside the Bears 10. 

With 5:33 to play, the Bears start from their ten, Matt  Forte is stopped for no gain. Cutler in trouble gets the ball off, but it's incomplete and it's third and ten. He just avoids the safety, and they'll punt from the end zone.
