CHICAGO (97.1 THE TICKET/AP) A surge in the final minute by Detroit  failed to produce enough to beat  Chicago and the Lions lose to the Bears 13-7 on Monday night.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket - mistakes by the Lions gave the Bears all the ammunition needed on a night when Detroit could have beaten the NFC North leaders.

The Bears’ Jay Cutler shook off an apparent rib injury and Brian Urlacher made a key fumble recovery to help lead Chicago to victory at Soldier Field.

It was certainly not an easy night for the NFC North leaders, particularly their quarterback, but they came away with the win after a week off and possibly buried Detroit (2-4) in the process despite getting a major scare along the way.

That happened in the second quarter when Cutler was sacked by Ndamukong Suh and ultimately wound up going to the locker room to have his ribs examined.

Cutler started the second half and was 16 of 31 for 150 yards and a touchdown in the game, but with the defense locking down the Lions, the Bears (5-1) prevailed. It was a huge blow for last-place Detroit, a team many expected to contend for the division championship after making the playoffs for the first time in more than a decade.
