WATCH: Highlights of Bears' nail-biting win over Buccaneers


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — Improving to 4-1 for the first time since 2012, the Chicago Bears (4-1) defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2) in comeback fashion on Thursday. The Bears won the Week 5 matchup 20-19 at Soldier Field, overcoming a 13-0 deficit and limiting the Bucs to just six points in the second half. Bears kicker Cairo Santos drilled a game-winning 38-yard field goal with 1:13 remaining.

A rushing touchdown by running back David Montgomery and a one-handed touchdown grab by tight end Jimmy Graham placed the Bears ahead 14-13 late in the first half. Cornerback Kyle Fuller set up Graham's go-ahead score by forcing a fumble via a jaw-dropping hit. Chicago quarterback Nick Foles collected his first win as a Bears starter, and Bucs quarterback Tom Brady suffered his first career loss to the Bears.
