Bears 30, Eagles 24
PHILADELPHIA -- Matt Forte bounced back from two costly turnovers and Jay Cutler rallied the resilient Bears.
Cutler threw a go-ahead 5-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett in the fourth quarter, Forte ran for 133 yards and the Bears beat the Philadelphia Eagles 30-24 on Monday night.
It was a crushing loss for Michael Vick and the Eagles (3-5), who blew a fourth-quarter lead for the fourth time this season. Jeremy Maclin fell down and was tackled at the Bears 30 after a 9-yard catch on fourth-and-10 with just under two minutes left.
The defending NFC East champions trail the New York Giants (6-2) by three games.
Chicago (5-3) won its third straight game, but remains third in the NFC North behind Green Bay (8-0) and Detroit (6-2).
After LeSean McCoy's 33-yard touchdown run following Forte's second fumble gave the Eagles a 24-17 lead in the third quarter, the Bears answered with 13 straight points.
Robbie Gould kicked a 38-yard field goal to cut it to 24-20, and then Chicago's defense forced a punt after three plays.
The Bears drove 51 yards for the go-ahead score with Cutler tossing a 5-yard TD pass to Bennett over Asante Samuel for a 27-24 lead. The Eagles reached the Bears 42 on their next drive. On fourth-and-6, punter Chas Henry bounced a pass to a wide-open Colt Anderson and Chicago took over.
