Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has gone through much criticism since being acquired by the team. However, this evening, he became the all-time leader in passing touchdowns.

Cutler hit tight end Martellus Bennett for a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter for the second. On the play, he broke the franchise record for 138, which broke the tie with Pro Football Hall of Famer Sid Luckman.

He threw his 137th and final touchdown pass with the Bears on Sept. 17, 1950. The record stood for 23,794 days until Cutler broke the record.

Brandon Marshall caught 26 of the touchdowns, while Alshon Jeffrey had 17 and Greg Olsen added 13. The touchdown by Bennett was his 12th, while Earl Bennett, whose no relation, had 11 with Johnny Knox.

Matt Forte has 10, with Kellen Davis contributing 9, along with Devin Hester. Another Devin, as in Devin Aromashodu had 4.

Dane Sanzenbacher has three with Matt Spaeth. Desmond Clark and Marquess Wilson have two, while Joshua Bellamy, Rashied Davis, Brandon Manumaleuna, Josh Morgan, Eddie Royal, and Roy Williams have one each.

Thirty-nine of the touchdowns came from 21-yards or longer. 12 of them were from 16-to-20-yards.

17 were from 11-to-15 yards, and 34 were from 6-to-10-yards. 36 came within 1-to-5 yards.
