Bills (0-8) fall again, this time to Bears
Question of the Day
TORONTO (AP) - In their relentlessly frustrating search for a victory, the Buffalo Bills have now proven they’re equally as bumbling on both sides of the border.
The Bills (0-8) are the NFL’s only winless team and are off to their worst start in 26 years.
They led 19-14 in the fourth quarter and were driving for another score when Tim Jennings picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick. Six plays later, Earl Bennett scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 2-yard touchdown catch from Jay Cutler with 6:41 left.
Cutler finished 17 of 30 for 188 and threw two touchdown passes, including a 4-yarder to Greg Olsen. Cutler lost one fumble, but was far more efficient than his last outing when he threw four interceptions in a 17-14 loss to Washington on Oct. 24.
Fitzpatrick went 31 of 51 for 299 yards and a touchdown to Roscoe Parrish.
“We needed this one,” Urlacher said. “We found a way to get it done.”
Setting himself in the middle of the field, Jennings read the play perfectly when Fitzpatrick attempted to hit Steve Johnson deep up the right sideline. Driving to his left, Jennings timed his leap to get a piece of the ball, and then bobbled it several times before securing it and taking it 39 yards to the Bills 23.
“I almost dropped that ball about four or five times, but I was able to regain it,” said Jennings, who maintained his balance while, at one point reaching backward to snag the ball. “I was just playing that play aggressive, because we knew we needed a turnover.”
After Cutler found Bennett open in the right side of the end zone, he converted the 2-point attempt with a shovel pass to Matt Forte to put Chicago up by 3.
The Bills have now lost three straight by a 3 points. The other two were in overtime _ 13-10 at Kansas City last weekend, and 37-34 at Baltimore on Oct. 24.
