CHICAGO -- Arrelious Benn went five years between touchdowns. Once he finally scored, he sure made it count.
The Jaguars (2-3) wiped out a 13-0 deficit in the fourth quarter in a matchup of last-place teams. And the go-ahead touchdown might have been helped by the oft-criticized turf at Soldier Field.
Benn slipped as he caught a slant and so did Tracy Porter as he tried to tag the receiver. That allowed Benn, who spent the past three seasons on injured reserve, to get up and run untouched for his first touchdown since he caught three for Tampa Bay during the 2011 season.
"That goes to show you that I went through a lot of adversity," said Benn , who was sidelined by injuries to his knee and clavicle. "I had a lot of injuries, being injured three years, being out of football for three years. I know it's a slow process as far as getting back, especially behind the guys we have here.
"For me, I looked at it as an opportunity for me to better myself as far as those years I missed and also to bring that veteran leadership to the younger guys and help make those guys better."
Benn's TD put Jacksonville on top by a point with 2:49 left and sent the Jaguars to just their fifth win in 26 road games in coach Gus Bradley's four seasons.
"It's not lack of heart, lack of trying," Bears coach John Fox said. "Our guys battled. We just don't play well enough right now. That's on all of us."
Willie Young had two sacks for Chicago. Porter intercepted Bortles in the end zone early on, but Chicago fell to 2-9 at home in two seasons under Fox.
