ATLANTA – Jay Cutler threw for 381 yards and a touchdown, Matt Forte ran for a couple of second-half scores, and the Chicago Bears picked up another road victory by beating the Atlanta Falcons 27-13 on Sunday.
Chicago (3-3) has won three of four away from Soldier Field this season, though there were so many Bears fans at the Georgia Dome that this seemed almost like a neutral site.
After the Falcons (2-4) rallied from a 13-3 halftime deficit to tie the game late in the third quarter, the Bears bounced back to hand Atlanta its third straight loss. Cutler unleashed a towering pass to Alshon Jeffery that went for 74 yards. On the next play, Forte took it in for a 6-yard touchdown.
The Falcons went three-and-out, and Chicago finished them off with a 15-play, 87-yard drive. Forte capped it with a 9-yard scoring burst up the middle.
