Cutler, Gould Key Bears Win Over Steelers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jay Cutler came through with a big pass to Devin Hester on third down, and Robbie Gould booted a 44-yard field goal with 15 seconds left to lift the Chicago Bears to a 17-14 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Cutler hit rookie Johnny Knox with the tying touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.

After Jeff Reed missed his second field goal of the period, Cutler helped set up Gould's field goal with a 5-yard pass to Hester on third-and-4 at the Steelers 39 that kept the winning drive going.

Cutler's home game was a big improvement over his debut with the Bears (1-1). He finished with 236 yards and two touchdowns without an interceptions, after being picked off a career-high four times in a season-opening loss at Green Bay.

That was enough to offset solid performances by Ben Roethlisberger and Santonio Holmes for Pittsburgh (1-1).
