"In games like this, you need your special players to be special," Chicago coach Lovie Smith.

Forte's 89-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter is the longest TD from scrimmage by a Bears running back in franchise history. "It's the first game," he said. Jay Cutler threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Brandon Manumaleuna one play after a questionable call midway through the fourth quarter, lifting the Bears to a 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. This is what the fall of a dynasty looks like. Even so, squeaking by a team with a league-record 30 losses over the previous two seasons probably did little to ease angst around Chicago, even if the Lions appear to be improved. Cutler completed 23 of 35 passes, with Forte catching seven for 151 yards -- the second most by a Bears running back behind Hall of Famer George McAfee's 157 against St. Louis in 1947. Bears LB Nick Roach started for the injured Pisa Tinoisamoa, but hurt his hip in the first half and didn't return. Calvin Johnson 46 Yard Pass From Drew Stanton, Brandon Manumaleuna 7 Yard Pass From Jay Cutler. "I felt like we were playing great defense and I just didn't feel good about having three points in that situation," Smith said. Despite the quarterback's four turnovers, Philadelphia's defense did enough to beat Dallas and retain control of the NFC East. The Vikings' upset of the Packers and the Bengals' takedown of the Titans, among other surprises, led to a rough weekend for many NFL bettors. Cutler finished 21 of 26 for 234 yards with a TD and no interceptions, along with making some plays with his feet. Rookie Jahvid Best had two touchdowns rushing as the Lions built a 14-3 lead, before the Bears came back. Referee Ed Hochuli flagged Ndamukong Suh for unnecessary roughness after he seemed to hit Cutler's shoulder pads, jolting him to the turf from behind when the quarterback was running downfield. After three plays went nowhere, Smith decided to go for it on fourth down rather than have Robbie Gould kick a field goal. The Bears outgained the Lions 463-168 but were trailing for most of the day thanks to four turnovers. Stafford had his arm in a sling as the second half started. For entertainment purposes only. He was [aware] he was trying to come down with it, he had one hand to keep it away from the other guy, he is trying to get his feet down and go to a knee it wasn't like he was trying to flip it to the official or anything.

The Lions were livid when the possibly pivotal call was made and were dumbfounded after the game. Lions MLB DeAndre Levy was inactive because of a groin injury.
