DETROIT -- The Chicago Bears made some breaks and might've gotten one in a win over the Detroit Lions.


Jay Cutler threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Brandon Manumaleuna one play after a questionable call midway through the fourth quarter, lifting the Bears to a 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Referee Ed Hochuli flagged Ndamukong Suh for unnecessary roughness after he seemed to hit Cutler's shoulder pads, jolting him to the turf from behind when the quarterback was running downfield.

"I felt it was an unnecessary non-football act -- a blow to the back of the runner's helmet in the process of him going down," Hochuli said, adding the penalty didn't have anything to do with Cutler being a QB.

Instead of facing a second-and-2 from the Detroit 14, the Bears had a first down at the 7 and Cutler connected with Manumaleuna with 8:39 left.

The Lions were livid when the possibly pivotal call was made and were dumbfounded after the game.

"It wasn't like elbowing him down, it was pushing him down," Detroit cornerback Chris Houston said. "Then I saw the flag, I didn't know what it was until he said it."

Suh said he wasn't going to judge the flag.

"I really don't care what he called or if it was a penalty or not," the rookie defensive tackle said. "I'm just going out there to make a play."

The call on Suh was ridiculous.

ON replay, terrible hold on Atl Weems KO return for 6. Looks like Matty Ice and the Atl are being put into the show by the NFL.
