Cutler Rallies Bears Past Eagles 30-24
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Matt Forte bounced back from two costly turnovers and Jay Cutler rallied the resilient Chicago Bears to a 30-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.

Cutler threw a go-ahead 5-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett in the fourth quarter, Forte ran for 133 yards and the Bears (5-3) won their third straight game.

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 is third in the NFC North behind Green Bay (8-0) and Detroit (6-2).
