[December 08, 2008]  CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bears needed help after a brutal loss. Lucky for them the reeling Jacksonville Jaguars were in town.

Danieal Manning set the tone for a strong defensive effort with an early interception, Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen caught touchdown passes, and the Bears rolled to a 23-10 victory on a bone-chilling Sunday afternoon.

Robbie Gould kicked three field goals and the Bears (7-6) rebounded from a 34-14 loss at Minnesota last week that left them a game behind in the Vikings NFC North and needing help to make the playoffs. They got some from the Jaguars (4-9), who have dropped four in a row and six of seven.
