Who are these Chicago Bears, and where did they come from?

The Chicago Bears entered Arrowhead Stadium the clear underdogs to the Kansas City Chiefs, and for good reason: The Chiefs are a better team.

The Bears struggled to keep pace for much of the game, thanks to a bevy of injuries to key personnel, but somehow made a 4th quarter push that quietened the home crowd.  Somehow, the Bears pulled off two touchdown drives in their final two possessions to beat the Chiefs 18-17.

Here is a look at the final TD play, courtesy of Jay Cutler and Matt Forte:

This Chicago Bears team is incredibly well-coached, thanks to head coach John Fox and coordinators Adam Gase and Vic Fangio. They put their players into positions to succeed, despite having a roster with so may issues.

And make no mistake... Two games in a row Jay Cutler has shown a grit and determination that has led his team to victory.  If Adam Gase can keep him focused the rest of the season, Cutler could have a career-year.

Other game notes:

- Linebacker Shea McClellin got knocked out of the game in the 3rd quarter with a knee injury. Details HERE.

- Robbie Gould became the all-time points leader in Chicago Bears history when he kicked his 2nd field goal of the game.
