Chiefs use strong defensive effort to down Bears

Dexter McCluster hauled in a 38-yard Hail Mary 3, in a defensive slugfest at Soldier Field.

The Chiefs came into the contest ranked last in the NFL with 13 sacks, but Kansas City's pressure got to Chicago quarterback Caleb Hanie seven times, with rookie Justin Houston recording three sacks.

McCluster ran for 61 yards on nine carries for the Chiefs (5-7), who snapped a four-game losing skid.

Without Matt Forte, who exited the game in the first quarter with a right knee injury, the Bears (7-5) struggled to get anything going offensively as they finished the game with just 181 total yards and went 0-for-11 on third down.

Hanie completed just 11-of-24 passes for 133 yards and three interceptions.
