Tied with Green Bay for the NFC North lead and just a game ahead of Minnesota (6-5) coming in, the Bears (8-3) grabbed a 25-3 halftime lead with Cutler connecting on just about every pass. The defense held Adrian Peterson in check early on, although he did finish with 108 yards rushing. Chicago also came away with three more takeaways to increase its league-leading total to 33.

But the Bears also lost Devin Hester and Matt Forte to injuries.
