Bears In Haiku: We Love You, Baltimore
From the looks on their faces, these 2 Chicago QBs seem to know who will be starting next year if Cutler continues to play like he did on Sunday. (Tribune photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo)

Bears win, Lions fall
NFL North ours to lose
As week 15 ends

First, Alshon Jeffery
Saves Jay Cutler from failure
Scores 6 on bad pass

Then Justin Tucker
Gives the Bears a big leg up
Sixty-one yard kick

Alshon Jeffery, the Bears' miracle receiver, pulled in a poor Jay Cutler pass to tie the game.  Thus started a final quarter in which the Bears scored three times to beat Cleveland on Sunday afternoon, ensuring the week would end with the Bears at least tied with Detroit for the NFL North title.

But another miracle on Monday night - Justin Tucker's 61-yard field goal - to give Baltimore the win over the Lions, left the Bears alone in first place. The Monsters of the Midway now control their own path to January football.

Chicagoans might want to consider singing this song today:
