Beaten by Forte

Bears running back Matt Forte rushed for 83 yards on 18 carries, but it was a catch out of the backfield that represented his most-important contribution.

In the fourth quarter, Forte scored on a 14-yard screen pass that staked the Bears to a three-point lead with 10:33 remaining.

Middle linebacker Smith and cornerback Corey Graham both missed tackles on the touchdown.

"He's a good player," Smith said. "They had a little screen play. I got there first, couldn't quite get him. I don't know who else had a shot. They got in there for the touchdown. That hurt us."

Tucker ties it up

Although the Ravens lost the game, kicker Justin Tucked proved capable in the clutch once again.

On a sloppy field, Tucker hit a 21-yard field goal with three seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime.

In the first quarter before a nearly two-hour delay, Tucker booted a 52-yard field goal. For the season, he's made 20 of 22 field goals and has connected on his last 18 kicks.

"We expect the game to come down to our feet," Tucker said. "When it does, we're ready to rise to the ocassion. We're happy to go kick extra points. Fortunately, we were able to pull through and keep the game alive."
