For the second week in a row the Bears made a run in the fourth quarter to get a win, as Jay Cutler threw a 16-yard touchdown pass with 10 ticks left on the clock to defeat the Minnesota Vikings, Sunday.
After beating the Bengals 24-21 last week, the Bears are now 2-0 to start the season.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Cutler went 28 of 39 and threw for 290 yards and three touchdowns. However, he also threw two interceptions and lost a fumble that was returned for six.
"We can get better," Bears coach Marc Trestman said. "We're going to look at the film and work on some things... Our guys kept their cool and made enough plays."
Cutler stepped it up in the fourth tonight, but had bittersweet feelings about the victory. "Four turnovers is too much for this offense, especially three on me," he said. "There's a lot to clean up. We're grateful for the win, we just gotta get better."
In regards to the other side of Cutler's game tonight, wide receiver Brandon Marshall said, "He's just ice cold, man." The Associated Press reports that he calls Cutler "Mr. Fourth Quarter."
The Bears have some cleaning up to do, but they are off to a good start at 2-0.
