The last time the Chicago Bears came back from a deficit of 12 or more points in the fourth quarter to win was on Nov. 25, 2007.
Strangely enough it was against the Jay Cutler led Denver Broncos.
The Bears trailed 34-20 with 10:38 left in the final quarter on that winter day at Soldier Field.
WR/KR Devin Hester provided the Bears with their only two touchdowns up to that point.
Rex Grossman was under center for the Bears as he set up two scoring drives to tie the game up. With 5:17, Adrian Peterson punched the ball in from the four-yard line.
Then with 0:58 seconds left, Grossman found WR Bernard Berrian on fourth-and-gaol in the back of the end zone for a three-yard touchdown to tie the game at 34.
The Bears won the coin toss in overtime and K Robbie Gould drilled a 39-yarder to win the game 37-34.
Both this past Sunday’s comeback and 2007′s comeback were capped off by Robbie Gould game winning kicks. Very fitting.
Cutler now has 13 career fourth-quarter comebacks to his name, six of the coming with the Bears.
