CLEVELAND -- Jay Cutler felt the pressure and knew he had to perform well. There was no other option. This wasnt the time to buckle. Not with his teammates, his coach, and frankly, all of Chicago counting on him. Once the rust came off, Cutler came through. Shaking off two first-half interceptions, Cutler threw three touchdown passes in his first start since Nov. 10, leading the Bears to a 38-31 win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns. Cutler, who missed Chicagos previous four games with a sprained left ankle and reclaimed his starting job from Josh McCown earlier this week, threw a 4-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett with 5:41 left as the Bears (8-6) rallied in the second half and stayed in contention for an NFC playoff spot. Cutler finished 22 of 31 for 265 yards and validated first-year coach Marc Trestmans decision to stick with him over McCown, who had played so well while filling in for Chicagos starter. Trestmans choice didnt come without controversy. There were reports of division within Chicagos locker room, but on a brutally cold and blustery day in Cleveland, the Bears were united. "The guys rallied around me," Cutler said. "Id be lying if I didnt say there was (pressure) with everything on the outside and as well as Josh has played. But this was the plan all along and no one really flinched in our building." Michael Bushs 40-yard TD run with 2:17 left sealed it for the Bears, who completed a four-game sweep of the AFC North and won their first road game since Nov. 4, when McCown led them to a win over Green Bay. Trestman had promised Cutler would keep his job once he was healthy. And after Cutler was cleared earlier this week to practice, Trestman kept his word and started the not-always-popular veteran, a decision that had some Bears fans questioning whether it might be better to stick with the hot McCown, who has thrown 13 TD passes and just one interception this season. Trestman said there was no doubt the Bears believed in Cutler. "They played hard for him today and they had his back," Trestman said. "Hes a captain -- an elected captain -- and Im sure he would tell you that not just the offensive guys, but throughout our football team, they stuck together and won for each other today." Cutler looked shaky in the first half with the two picks, but he settled down and brought back the Bears, who fell behind 24-17 when Cleveland safety T.J. Ward returned a fumble 51 yards for a TD. Backed up at his own 5 in front of Clevelands Dawg Pound section early in the fourth, Cutler drove the Bears 95 yards -- with the help of two defensive penalties -- and hit Alshon Jeffery with a 45-yard scoring pass to tie it with 10:59 left. Cutler lofted a deep pass toward the front of the end zone to Jeffery, who wasnt open but hauled in the throw when safety Tashuan Gipson badly mistimed his jump. Chicagos Brandon Marshall had six catches for 95 yards and a 5-yard touchdown. Marshall knew Cutler was playing with more at stake than usual, and could understand his teammate being nervous. "Hes not going to show it, but the human side of things, you got a guy -- Josh McCown -- playing lights out, probably playing better than any quarterback in the National Football League," Marshall said. "Thats what I love about Jay, man. Doesnt matter the situation, hes going to be the same guy. Thats what I respect about him as a player, as a captain, but also as a friend." Chicagos Zackary Bowman returned an interception 43 yards for a TD to give the Bears a 17-10 lead in the third quarter. Gipson had one of two defensive touchdowns for the Browns (4-10). But as has been the case in recent weeks, Clevelands defence couldnt get the big stop when it needed one. The Browns have lost five straight, eight of nine and dropped at least 10 games in six straight seasons. "It kinds of defines our season," said Browns quarterback Jason Campbell, who finished 23 of 39 for 273 yards and one touchdown. "There were some good things and some bad things. Its frustrating." Campbells 43-yard TD pass to Josh Gordon brought Cleveland within 38-31 with 59 seconds left. The Browns, who lost a heartbreaker in New England last week when they couldnt recover a late onside kick, were then penalized for illegal formation trying one of their own and the Bears ran out the final seconds. NOTES: The Browns lost star CB Joe Haden in the second half with a hip pointer. His absence allowed Cutler to pick on rookie CB Leon McFadden. Chudzinski said the team will know more about Hadens injury Monday. ... Gordon finished with three catches for 67 yards. He was involved in a minor car accident Saturday. ... The Bears limited the Browns to 93 yards rushing. Chicago came in ranked last in the league, allowing 157 yards per game. Fake Nike Air Vapormax .

LOUIS - Matt Holliday has been known to be a streaky hitter. And he might be finding his hitting stroke at just the right time for the St. Louis Cardinals. He homered twice and had five RBIs and the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 13-2 Saturday night to earn a split of a day-night doubleheader. "It feels good," Holliday said. "It always feels good to help your team win. Thats what were here for. Were here to win games. When you do something that helps the team win, thats the idea." The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for St. Louis, which won for just the third time in its past nine games and pulled to within one game of the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee dropped its fourth straight with a 3-1 loss at San Francisco. Its the most runs this season for the Cardinals and the first time in seven games they scored at least three runs. Their previous high was 10, which they did twice. "Yeah, we really need those big production days and Matts the guy that can do that," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "Its nice to see and nice to see him lead like he did. "Its good to see our offence kind of quiet people that think that we can only score two runs a game." The Cardinals have scored two or fewer runs in 45 of their 136 games or about one-third of the time. Marco Gonzales (1-2) gave up one run and three hits over a season-high six innings. His previous long outing was in his debut on June 25 when he pitched five innings against Colorado, but didnt figure in the decision in a 9-6 win for St. Louis. Tsuyoshi Wada (4-2) gave up four runs in six innings. "Wada was hanging in there," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "He was hanging in there. One pitch obviously Holliday drilled it out of the ballpark. Then he went back out and kept us in there one more inning. He ground it out. I thought he kept us in the ballgame." Holliday hit his 14th home run in the fifth to break a 1-1 tie. His three-run, two-out blast to centre scored Daniel Descalso and Matt Carpenter. He got No. 15 leading off a nine-run eighth. It marked his 19th career multi-homer game and his first since getting two on Aug. 10, 2013, against the Cubs. Holliday has an 11-game hitting streak during which he has gone 14 for 43. "Three-run homers are game-changers," he said. "Especially if its a tie game and you get a three-run lead, it kind of gives you a little bit of a cushion and allows your pitcher to settle down a little bit." The first 10 batters reached to start the eeighth for St.dddddddddddd Louis. Hollidays homer was followed by five singles and three walks before he was hit by a pitch to drive in the seventh run of the inning. Matt Adams hit a sacrifice fly and Yadier Molina got his third hit of the night to drive in the ninth run before second baseman Javier Baez made a nice play on an Oscar Taveras grounder to start an inning-ending double play. Felix Doubront pitched seven strong innings in his National League debut and Starlin Castro hit one of Chicagos three solo homers, sending the Cubs to a 5-1 victory in the opener. Doubront (1-0) allowed seven hits in his return from the disabled list. He had been out with a strained right calf since Aug. 1, two days after Chicago acquired him from Boston. Logan Watkins and Chris Valaika also connected for Chicago in the makeup of a May 14 rainout. Justin Masterson (2-3) gave up all three homers and five earned runs in 4 1-3 innings for St. Louis. Masterson has allowed four or more runs in five of his six starts for the Cardinals and pitched five innings or fewer in four of his starts. WELCOME BACK: Molina went 3 for 5 with three singles in his second game since returning to the lineup following a seven-week absence. Molina, who had surgery on his thumb in July, went 0 for 3 in his return Friday and sat out the first game of the doubleheader. He also threw out Arismendy Alcantara trying to steal second in the fifth, the first attempt against Molina since his return. TRAINERS ROOM Cubs: 1B Anthony Rizzo, who was second in the NL with 30 homers, sat out again. Rizzos lower back tightened during a rain delay Tuesday in Cincinnati. He has not played since and is expected to sit out Sunday as well. ... RHP Edwin Jackson (strained right strain) threw in the bullpen before the game. He has been on the disabled list since Aug. 21. Cardinals: RHP Michael Wacha (right shoulder strain) will pitch Sunday in Tulsa for Double-A Springfield. Wacha went on the DL after his June 17 start. UP NEXT Cubs: LHP Travis Wood (8-11, 4.72) will start Sunday afternoon. He is 2-5 with a 5.83 ERA against St. Louis in his career, with both victories coming this year. In his last outing against the Cardinals, he got a no-decision after giving up five runs (two earned) in five innings July 25 in a game Chicago won 7-6. Cardinals: RHP John Lackey (2-1, 4.50) gets his second career start against Chicago. He earned his second win with St. Louis in his last start, giving up one run in seven innings in a 3-2 win Aug. 25 at Pittsburgh. ' ' '
