Jay Cutler unseats Sid Luckman as Bears' TD pass leader

SAN DIEGO -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler broke the franchise record for touchdown passes when he found Martellus Bennett for a 1-yard score in the second quarter of Monday night's 22-19 win at San Diego.

Cutler had been tied with Hall of Famer Sid Luckman, with 137 touchdown passes with the Bears.

The record-setting pass came at the end of a seven-play, 80-yard drive in the second quarter and pulled the Bears to 13-7.

Cutler added a 25-yard touchdown pass to Zach Miller with 3:19 remaining in the game, which gives him 139 TD passes with the Bears.

Cutler began his career with the Broncos and now has 193 touchdown passes in his career.

On Monday, Cutler went 27-for-40 for 345 yards and overcame a fumble and an interception return for a touchdown.

Luckman threw his final touchdown pass as a member of the Bears on Sept. 17, 1950.
