Fourth Quarter:

Bears hold on for win

(10:45pm) - The Jets begin their final drive at their own 20. Geno Smith leads the Jets offense on a 12-play drive including a 51-yard completion to Jets WR Greg Salas down the left sideline. The pass gives New York a first down at the Bears' 20. The extended drive would eventually end when Smith's 4th-and-5 pass from the Chicago 9 is caught by Jeremy Kerley beyond the back of the end zone with :58 remaining. In victory formation, the Bears run out the clock to preserve the win and move to 2-1 on the season.

Bears pad lead

(10:22pm) - Robbie Gould's 45-yard field goal increased the Bears' lead to 27-19 with 3:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. The kick capped a 12-play, 46-yard drive.

Jets climb to within five points

(10:08pm) - Nick Folk's fourth field goal without a miss drew the Jets to within 24-19 with 9:52 left in the fourth quarter. The kick capped a 10-play, 41-yard drive.


Third Quarter:

Jets close the gap

(9:55pm) - Nick Folk's 22-yard field goal drew the Jets to within 24-16 with :27 left in the third quarter. The kick came after the Bears dropped Geno Smith for a two-yard loss on third-and-goal from the 2.

The Bears defense held the Jets out of the out zone despite New York starting its drive at the Chicago 28 thanks in part to a 15-yard penalty on the Bears' Terrell Manning on a fair catch.


Bears increase lead to 24-13*

(9:25pm) - Jay Cutler's 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Martellus Bennett on the opening possession of the second half gave the Bears a 24-13 lead with 11:28 left in the third quarter.

The TD capped a six-play, 80-yard drive that was highlighted by Cutler's 42-yard pass to Alshon Jeffery deep down the left sideline. Cutler was 5 of 5 for 83 yards on the drive.

Three plays before the touchdown, Cutler threw an apparent 12-yard TD pass to Brandon Marshall. But the play was nullified by an illegal hands-to-the-face penalty against left guard Michael Ola.


Second Quarter:

Jets cut gap to 17-13

(8:44pm) - Geno Smith's 19-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley drew the Jets to within 17-13 with 3:45 left in the first half. The TD capped a nine-play, 77-yard drive.

(8:26pm) - Nick Folk's 28-yard field goal cut the Bears' lead to 17-6 with 9:57 remaining in the second quarter. The kick capped an eight-play, 66-yard drive that was highlighted by Geno Smith's 43-yard pass to tight end Jace Amaro.

Bears widen margin to 17-3

(8:20pm) - Robbie Gould's 24-yard field goal gave the Bears a 17-3 lead with 13:54 left in the second quarter. The kick capped a 15-play, 79-yard drive.

The drive was sustained by three straight third-down conversions as Jay Cutler completed a 10-yard pass to Alshon Jeffery on third-and-two, Cutler scrambled for 16 yards on third-and-six and Jets defensive back Antonio Allen was penalized for holding on third-and-10.


First Quarter:

Jets draw to within 14-3

(8:02pm) - Nick Folk's 43-yard field goal drew the Jets to within 14-3 with 3:42 left in the first quarter. The kick capped an 11-play, 55-yard drive.

The Jets settled for the field goal after rookie Ego Ferguson recorded his first NFL sack, dropping Geno Smith for a 13-yard loss.

Bears increase lead to 14-0

(7:55pm) - Jay Cutler's 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Martellus Bennett gave the Bears a 14-0 lead with 9:54 left in the first quarter.

The score came after the Bears' Ahmad Dixon recovered a muffed punt by the Jets' Jalen Sanders at the New York 40.

On the next play, Alshon Jeffery drew a 33-yard pass interference penalty against cornerback Darrin Walls.

On third-and-goal from the 7, Cutler had all day to throw and eventually a rifled a TD pass to Bennett in the back of the end zone. Bennett has now scored a TD in all three games this season.


Mundy gives Bears 7-0 lead*

(7:37pm) - On the game's second play from scrimmage, safety Ryan Mundy intercepted a Geno Smith pass and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown, giving the Bears a 7-0 lead with 14:28 left in the first quarter.

Smith faked a pass to his left and then looked back to his right, hoping to hit running back Chris Johnson with a screen. But Mundy read the play and stepped in front of Johnson, picking off the pass and dashing down the left sideline for the Bears' first defensive touchdown of the season.
