CHICAGO | Jay Cutler threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Devin Aromashodu in overtime, and the Chicago Bears beat the fading Minnesota Vikings 36-30 on Monday night to give New Orleans Saints homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Nick Roach recovered a fumble by Adrian Peterson following a catch, setting up Cutler’s fourth touchdown pass of the game and sending Minnesota (11-4) to its third loss in four games.

This one comes following a dustup between star quarterback Brett Favre and coach Brad Childress on the sideline last week, and it prevented the Vikings from locking up a first-round playoff bye.
