The Buffalo Bills scored a late half touchdown to pull even with the Chicago Bears to end the second quarter 7-7.

Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with Roscoe Parrish with 11 seconds remaining to stymie the Bears shutout. Up till the two minute drill the defense looked stout, holding the Bills to just 11 yards on the ground.

Against the 0-7 Bills in Toronto, the Bears looked like they were working on their problem areas on offense, too.

Offensive coordinator Mike Martz opened up with four straight run plays, and he continued to lean on the rush to open up the lead against hapless Buffalo.

The consistent run game appears to be helping Cutler, who's got a 101.4 QB rating heading into the half. He hit Greg Olsen for a touchdown, and connected with both Johnny Knox and Earl Bennett for 99 yards. Plus they're 4-6 on third down.

Cutler even rushed for 32 yards.

The offensive line is giving Cutler time and he's connecting on hot routes against the blitz. But penalties (6) and missed opportunities -- like Johnny Knox's missed field goal near the end of half -- kept the team from owning the lead.

Still, they're tied at half. Question is can they pull ahead in time?
