NFL Scores Week 7, Bears Vs. Buccaneers: Chicago Staves Off Rally In London

Matt Forte's great day on the ground gave the Bears a 24-18 win over the Bucs in London.

In the NFL's annual trip to London, Matt Forte made like a werewolf, and left Tampa Bay looking for the tattered shreds of its rush defense.

Forte ran for 145 yards and a touchdown, anchoring the Bears offense, as Chicago scored a 24-18 "road" victory. Jay Cutler threw for 226 yards and a touchdown in the win, but also threw two interceptions.

The Buccaneers' Josh Freeman had a day to forget, throwing four interceptions to help counteract his 264 yards and two touchdowns, and the Bucs barely even tried to run the ball, gaining 30 yards on 11 carries as a team.

D.J. Moore, Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, and Chris Conte split the four interceptions evenly.

With the win, the Bears move to 4-3 on the season, while the Bucs fall to 4-3 with the loss.
