Tyler Palko connected with Dexter McCluster on a wild 38-yard pass to end the first half on a ball that got deflected by Brian Urlacher and Chris Conte, before landing into the hands of McCluster to give the Chiefs a 7-3 lead and their first touchdown in three games. A 21-yard field goal from Ryan Succop in the third quarter made it a seven-point game, and Jon McGraw intercepted struggling Bears backup QB Caleb Hanie in the end zone in the fourth as the Chiefs held on for a 10-3 win.
Kyle Orton came in for one play in the second quarter and left with a dislocated finger. The Chiefs tried running a flea-flicker, and Orton right index finger banged off safety Major Wright. Orton was quickly relieved by Palko and never returned to the game.
The Bears are experiencing the bad luck the Chiefs went through earlier in the year. Their top running back Matt Forte got hit in the right knee by linebacker Derrick Johnson in the first half and did not return. Without Jay Cutler or Forte, the Chiefs defense was able to shut down the Bears who also missed a 41 yard field goal in the second half.
