Bears Vs. Eagles Final Score: Jay Cutler Tosses Go-Ahead Touchdown Pass In Bears Win

The Bears trailed going into the fourth quarter, but 10 unanswered points in the final period was enough to lift Chicago to a 30-24 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler tossed a five-yard touchdown pass to Earl Bennett to give Chicago a 27-24 lead midway through the fourth. The score capped a five-play, 51-yard drive.

The Bears' final score came on a 22-yard Robbie Gould field goal after an 11-play, 54-yard drive that included a Devin Hester ankle injury. Hester would not return.

Michael Vick and the Eagles had a chance to take the lead, but Vick threw high to receiver Jeremy Maclin on 4th-and-10. The Mizzou product slipped and was touched down by corner D.J. Moore short of the first down marker.

The win improves the Bears to 5-3. The Eagles fall to 3-5. The Bears play the Lions at Solider Field next week.
