The Chicago Bears had their six-game winning streak snapped and lost quarterback Jay Cutler to a concussion in Sunday night's 13-6 loss to the Houston Texans in front of a crowd of 59,989 at rainy Soldier Field.
Cutler, who was not playing well prior to...

I’ve never seen the Bears play a first quarter like that.
Heck, no one has ever seen a first quarter like the one the Bears laid on the Titans.
For the first time in their long, glorious history, the Bears rang up 28 points before they had...

Jay Cutler was asked to explain his NFL-best fourth-quarter ability.
“I don’t know.’’ Cutler said Wednesday. “I’m getting lucky, I guess.’’

One good thing about Jay Cutler’s near-Super-Bowl-dream-ending injury: The Super Bowl dream remains alive, even if it now might be wrapped in Kevlar and popping Vicodin.

You could make the argument that every one of us is in a race against time, but it might be a little more difficult to sustain that view of the Bears defense these days.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Toting the football he caught Sunday for a 24-yard touchdown, Brandon Marshall headed toward the first row of seats behind the Bears bench with more purpose than any route he ran all game.
Marshall found his father, Freddie,...

As a rule, the Bears' defensive scheme may be the most predictable in the NFL. But coordinator Rod Marinelli and the boys stepped out of character a bit Monday.
They blitzed on nearly 23 percent of Tony Romo's dropbacks, mostly in the first half. It was...

You know what’s worse than the Bears’ offensive line? The Cowboys’ offensive line, that’s what.
Hard to believe, I know. It’s not often the Bears' offensive line stinks less than the opponent’s, but just look:

The Bears didn't need Jay Cutler to be on his game to win Sunday, and it's a good thing.
Cutler usually is a pretty accurate passer, but his throws frequently were not where they should have been against the Rams. He completed 54.8 percent of his...

It was not a performance that offered conclusive answers when it comes to Jay Cutler, his line and the Bears offense.
But the Bears are in no position to worry themselves with style points.
