CHICAGO — Jay Cutler threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns, and the Chicago Bears won their fifth straight, beating Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers 31-20 on Sunday.
Chicago (7-3) continued its remarkable turnaround and handed the Chargers their fifth straight loss, their longest slide since an 0-5 start in 2003. But it wasn't easy.
Rivers threw for 280 yards. For most of the game, he looked more like a Pro Bowl quarterback than the guy who had been turning it over at an alarming rate. But two late interceptions helped preserve the win for Chicago.
The Bears were leading 31-20 when San Diego's Antoine Cason returned an interception 64 yards to the Chicago 16. But instead of driving for a touchdown, Rivers sealed it with an INT.
