The Chicago Bears had just erased a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter when they found themselves trailing again.

Time to call it a day? No, time to dig in.

Robbie Gould kicked a 41-yard field goal as time expired after Jay Cutler rallied the Bears in the fourth quarter for a 23-22 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

“We were just taking turns not making plays, but the thing I like about today was we played from behind,” Brandon Marshall said. “Last time we did that we lost (against Green Bay on Sept. 13). It was great work for us. Carolina put it to us, but we responded well that last drive.”

The Bears trailed 19-7 in the fourth period when the game turned in a big way.

Chicago (6-1) took over on the Carolina 38 after Brad Nortman shanked a 6-yard punt, and Cutler connected with Kellen Davis on a 12-yard scoring pass with just under 7 minutes left.

On Carolina’s next play from scrimmage, Steve Smith slipped on an out pattern and Tim Jennings returned his second interception of the game 25 yards to make it 20-19. The pass failed on the 2-point attempt.

Cam Newton drove the Panthers to the Chicago 27, and Justin Medlock’s 45-yard field goal hit the right upright and went through to put Carolina ahead 22-20 with 2:27 remaining. But Cutler moved the Bears 55 yards to the 23-yard line, going 6 of 7 before Gould nailed his winner.
