Cutler Leads Bears Past Lions
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes and ran for another, and the Chicago Bears pulled away in the second half to beat the Detroit Lions 48-24 Sunday after they snapped their 19-game losing streak last week.

Matt Forte ran for 121 yards, rookie Johnny Knox returned a kickoff 102 yards and the Bears headed into their bye with their third straight win.

The Lions were celebrating a win over Washington that snapped a slide that matched the second-longest in league history a week earlier. This time, they were holding their breath after watching quarterback Matthew Stafford, the No. 1 draft pick, twist his right knee while being sacked in the fourth quarter.
