Big return helps Bears hold off Cardinals

(TSX / STATS) -- Deonte Thompson returned a missed field goal 109 yards for a touchdown at the end of the second quarter and the Chicago Bears hung on to defeat the Arizona Cardinals 24-23 on Saturday night in a preseason game at Glendale, Ariz.

The Cardinals rallied from a 10-point deficit in the final two minutes to almost steal the victory, but after a 52-yard field goal with 1:25 to play and a 3-yard touchdown pass by Blaine Gabbert with nine seconds left, Arizona couldn't connect on a two-point conversion.

On the conversion try, Gabbert looked for Ross again and the receiver was open, but didn't turn back for the ball in time as the pass fell incomplete in the end zone.
