The Chicago Bears have stood behind Jay Cutler since his injury. From the head coach to the other quarterback in the equation in Josh McCown, the support has been unwavering. Cutler came out with some shaky throws against the Cleveland Browns and admits he felt some pressure in that game. After missing time with two different injuries, McCown playing well and the potential to make the playoffs, it is not a huge surprise he would.
“I feel kind of at ease,” Cutler said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “We’ve got a real good plan this week I think. The guys on offense are playing at about as high of a level as I think you could play around me, so it makes it easy for me. Just find the open guy.”
It looked questionable early and there were plenty openly asking if the Bears made a mistake with Cutler and should sit him in favor of McCown, but Cutler and the Bears were able to rally. Cutler finished the game with 265 yards and 3 touchdowns against 2 interceptions in the game. The Bears finished the game with 21 fourth quarter points, were able to win the game and move on to an 8-6 record, alive in well in the race for the NFC North division. The Bears now move on to a big game against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Bears will need a confident Cutler if they are going to get to 9-6.
