Forte takes over for Bears

CHICAGO -- When your quarterback throws two interceptions, including one in the red zone to end your best drive, the Chicago Bears did what they should do: Hand the ball to rookie tailback Matt Forte.

Forte carried the ball on six of the Bears' seven plays of a drive that tied the game at 17 with 3:11 remaining. Included in that mix was a two-yard dive on fourth-and-two and a two-yard touchdown.

I'm surprised the Packers didn't challenge the spot on Forte's fourth down conversion, which was very close. But it's history now. The game is tied and the Bears have the momentum in their efforts to keep their playoff hopes alive.

We're going to focus in here on the final few minutes and will bring you some quick analysis after the final gun. See you there.
