This Week/Last Week
Jay Cutler’s broken thumb could break the Bears’ wild-card chances.
Losing QB Jay Cutler is disheartening, but similar to the Texans this team is equipped to possibly overcome it. RB Matt Forte has the ability to carry this offense and the defense has been dominant after shuffling their back half by starting Major Wright and Chris Conte. The road to the playoffs just got a lot steeper, but its not time to turn your heads just yet.
Without Cutler, they have major issues. Their season suddenly took a huge turn for the worse with one thumb injury.
