Take a quick stroll down memory lane with PFW for a recap of the Bears' Week 14 contests each of the last five seasons:
2009: A fourth-quarter touchdown led the Packers over the Bears, 21-14. Chicago trailed 13-0 early, but battled back. QB Jay Cutler found WR Johnny Knox on a 19-yard TD pass to cut the deficit to six in the final minutes of the second quarter and connected with WR Devin Aromashodu in the third quarter to give the Bears a 14-13 lead. But it wouldn't hold, as RB Ryan Grant's one-yard TD run at the start of the fourth quarter gave the Packers the victory.
2008: The tight ends led the way in the Bears' 23-10 win over the Jaguars. QB Kyle Orton put Chicago on the board first with a two-yard pass to TE Desmond Clark, giving the Bears an early 7-0 lead. Orton then found TE Greg Olsen for his second TD pass of the day to give Chicago a 20-3 lead at halftime. The Jags cut the lead to 10 in the fourth quarter, but PK Robbie Gould hit his third field goal mid-way through the fourth and helped Chicago secure the win.
2007: The Bears were playing catch-up all day, and never were able to surpass the Redskins in a 24-16 loss. Trailing 14-0 midway in the third quarter, a Gould field goal and a TD pass from QB Brian Griese to WR Bernard Berrian cut the deficit to four. The Bears managed a pair of field goals in the fourth, but the Redskins held on for the win.
2006: Bears WR Devin Hester scored twice on kickoff returns in Chicago's 42-27 win over the Rams on a Monday night. After a scoreless first quarter, each team scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter, as Hester broke free for a 94-yard kick return and a 34-yard pass from QB Rex Grossman to Berrian gave the Bears a 14-13 lead at halftime. Chicago pulled away after the break, scoring four second-half touchdowns to secure the victory.
2005: The Bears were held without a touchdown until the fourth quarter in a 21-9 loss to the Steelers. Hines Ward scored a TD in the first quarter and two TD runs by Jerome Bettis were enough to put Chicago away. Pittsburgh's defense held strong and the Bears' long TD came when RB Thomas Jones scored on a one-yard run with 13:38 remaining.
