(Sports Network) – Jay Cutler threw three touchdowns to lead the Chicago Bears over the downtrodden Minnesota Vikings, 27-13, in an NFC North tilt at Soldier Field.
Devin Hester caught a touchdown pass and added 147 yards in the return game for the Bears (6-3), who are now tied with the Packers atop the division after their second straight win.
Cutler connected with nine different receivers, completing 22-of-35 passes for 237 yards while getting intercepted twice.
Brett Favre, fresh off a career-high 446-yard showing in Week 9, was 18-of-31 through the air for just 170 yards with three interceptions and a lost fumble for the Vikings (3-6), who have dropped eight straight regular season contests on the road dating back to 2009.
Most of Favre’s yards came on a 53-yard scoring strike to Percy Harvin, who appeared to suffer a knee injury in the fourth quarter.
