    In desperate need of a victory, the Chicago Bears got a huge effort from their defensive unit, which made plays against an inept Arizona Cardinals offense to keep the team's postseason hopes alive.

    Zack Bowman recovered a fumble in the end zone and Charles Tillman recorded his third interception return for a touchdown this season, as the Bears dominated the Cardinals, 28-13, to halt a three-game skid.

    After a slow start, Jay Cutler finished with 146 yards passing for Chicago and tossed a touchdown to Brandon Marshall, who caught six passes for 68 yards on the day while Matt Forte rushed for 88 yards and a score on 12 carries, but left the contest in the third quarter with an ankle injury and did not return.

    Ryan Lindley completed 17-of-30 passes for 141 yards and an interception before giving way to backup Brian Hoyer, who didn't fair much better in throwing for 105 yards and an interception on 11-of-19 efficiency. Arizona scored its only touchdown on a blocked field goal return by Justin Bethel late in the fourth quarter.

    They'd be better off not getting in. Maybe then Lovie would finally be fired.

    That's the plan...

    He's done nothing but make the Bears a decent regular season team at best. Angelo's gone, Smith has to be on the next train out.

    Might be time to clean house in Chi-town after next week. They can build around Cutler, Marshall and Forte but that defense is long in the tooth and will need some rebuilding. That brutal o-line needs some major help too.

    As much as I want them to win on Sunday they probably won't. I hate saying that but I'm being realistic.
