CHICAGO, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Matt Bryant's 21-yard field with 4:21 left in overtime Sunday gave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a 27-24 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Bryant's winning kick finished a Tampa Bay drive that included a 38-yard pass from Brian Griese to Antonio Bryant and an unnecessary roughness call on Charles Tillman of the Bears.

Griese threw 67 passes in the game, completing 38 for 407 yards and two touchdowns. He led his team back from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Antonio Bryant caught 10 passes for 138 yards and Jerramy Stevens had five catches for 61 yards. Ike Hillard also grabbed a touchdown pass.

Kyle Orton passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears (1-2).

Matt Forte rushed for 89 yards, caught seven passes for 66 yards and scored a touchdown. Brandon Lloyd hauled in another scoring toss for Chicago.
