Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler returned from a high-ankle sprain, throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions in a 38-31 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Cutler had been sidelined since Nov. 10.

Replacing successful backup Josh McCown, Cutler's touchdown pass to Earl Bennett in the fourth quarter sealed the win for the Bears.

He completed 22 of 31 for 265 yards.

"The guys rallied around me," Cutler said. "I'd be lying if I didn't 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."
