Bears' defense sparks victory over Cardinals

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago Bears' defense scored two touchdowns Sunday to beat the Arizona Cardinals 28-13 and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Charles Tillman returned an interception 10 yards for a score, the third pick he has brought back for a touchdown this season and the eighth overall by Chicago, one shy of the NFL record. Zack Bowman returned a fumble 1 yard for another Bears score.

Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 68 yards and one TD, breaking the Bears' franchise record for receiving yards in a season in the process.

Chicago (9-6) snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the second time in seven tries. Arizona (5-10) lost for the 10th time in 11 games.
