Any optimism Bears fans had for Jay Cutler’s return to the field quickly died after this game. Cutler’s three turnovers in the first half (two interceptions and one lost fumble), completely took the wind out of Chicago’s sails; the pick-six was actually what caused the Bears’ boat to sink.

To make matters even worse, the 11-year veteran lost another fumble that went out the back of the end zone late in the third quarter, resulting in a safety. Not even the 50-yard Hail Mary pass to Cameron Meredith for a touchdown at the end of the first half couldn’t eclipse Cutler’s beyond-terrible performance in Week 10. Cutler seemed to lock in on only Alshon Jeffery, and was very inaccurate on a number of throws. If there was a grade lower than “F,” he would get it.
