Forte Runs For 145 Yards, Bears Beat Bucs 24-18
WEMBLEY, England (AP) -- Matt Forte ran for 145 yards and a touchdown and the Chicago Bears held on to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-18 on Sunday in the fifth annual NFL regular-season game at Wembley Stadium.

Jay Cutler threw for 226 yards and a touchdown and the Bears (4-3) intercepted Josh Freeman four times to win their second game in a row.

The Buccaneers (4-3) lost for the second time in three years in London.

Tampa Bay scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull within three points. But after a 25-yard field goal by Chicago's Robbie Gould, Freeman was picked off with 37 seconds left by D.J. Moore.
