Never a close one and after the Bucs failed on fourth down from their own 45 in the first quarter, the Bears drove for a 14-0 lead and the rout was on from there.

Gerald Carter caught a career-high 10 passes and the need to play catch-up meant James Wilder had his lowest rushing day of the season.
