Cutler connected with Greg Olsen on a 32-yard pass, Devin Hester on a 9-yard score and Matt Forte from 3 yards that provided a 10-point bulge with 5:16 left.

David Buehler missed a 44-yard field goal in the fourth quarter and wide receiver Roy Williams fumbled after a reception at the Chicago 35 later in the quarter to seal the Cowboys' fate.
