Trent Dilfer found WR Antonio Bryant for two touchdowns in a 38-second span late in the fourth quarter as Cleveland rallied to win at home.
With the Browns trailing 10-6, Dilfer -- making his 100th career start -- hit Bryant for a 33-yard touchdown with 3 minutes 2 seconds left. The scoring strike was also the 33-year-old Dilfer's 100th career touchdown pass, and five plays later, he got No. 101.
After Bears rookie QB Kyle Orton's fumble was recovered by Chris Crocker, Dilfer found Bryant on the same route in the left corner, this time a 28-yard touchdown that put the Browns up by 10 points with 2:24 remaining.
"It was ugly out there," Dilfer said. "I'll be the first to admit it. Two plays is all we made the whole day."
For nearly 57 minutes, the Browns appeared headed toward another tough loss at home. The Bears were undone by costly mistakes and an offense that couldn't get much going behind Orton.
Chicago RB Thomas Jones left midway through the fourth quarter with an injured right knee. Orton's eight-yard touchdown pass to Marc Edwards gave the Bears a 10-6 lead in the third quarter.
Phil Dawson's 44-yard field goal with 37 seconds left in the second quarter gave Cleveland a 6-3 halftime lead, concluding 30 minutes of offensive ineptitude by both teams.
