The Chicago Bears are in a must win game against the Cleveland Browns as they are currently in a first place tie with the Detroit Lions in the NFC North.

Jay Cutler started this game off shakey with an interception in the endzone after targeting Brandon Marshall. Cutler was picked off again later on in the game but has been able to find his groove since then. Besides those two interceptions, Cutler has some excellent stats in his first game since being injured against the Detroit Lions.

And this isn’t a cake walk of a game. Yeah, it may be the Cleveland Browns, but the Cleveland Browns happen to have one of the best defenses in the game. Chicago was able to take apart a Dallas Cowboys defense who happened to be one of the worst in the league, so this in a way is a bit of a statement game.

Chicago’s defense hasn’t allowed Cleveland do to much against them as two touchdowns were scored off an interception and a fumble. So in a way, you can look at that as a plus for the defense. Not so great for the offense, but if they’re able to pick up a win today, it would be a huge confidence boost going into Philadelphia next Sunday.

Cutler is currently 21 of 30 for 261 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

He’s found Marshall, Jeffery and Bennett for his scores.
