CHICAGO (AP) - Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears looked like they were headed to an easy win. Instead, they had to hang on to beat lowly St. Louis.
Cutler fizzled after a strong start, throwing for 143 yards and a touchdown without an interception, and the Bears beat the Rams 17-9 Sunday after dropping four straight and 6 of 7.
Cutler threw for 131 yards in the first quarter as the Bears built a 10-0 lead. After that, Chicago went to the run, St. Louis rallied and Bears receiver Devin Hester left the game with a calf injury.
