|Cutler's Late TD Pass Rallies Bears Past Seattle
|SEATTLE (AP) _ Jay Cutler pumped his fists. He hugged his linemen. And he raised both arms triumphantly, all inside the final 2 minutes.
Exactly the scenes the Bears envisioned when they traded a king's ransom to Denver to get him.
Cutler's miserable Chicago debut two weeks ago became forgotten when he completed all three of his passes on Sunday's decisive drive. The third was for 36 yards to Devin Hester with 1:52 remaining, rallying the Bears to a 25-19 victory over the depleted Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle, playing without seven injured starters, drove to the Bears 29 with 30 seconds left. But Seneca Wallace, starting because quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was out with a broken rib, threw high and incomplete to Julius Jones on fourth-and-2 to seal the win for the Bears (2-1).
