Here's a look at Week 9.
Jay Cutler has struggled throughout much of the 2012 season, but has been at his best in the fourth quarter.

I’m moving the Bears out of the #1 spot barely this week because I wasn’t impressed with their near home loss to the Panthers and because the Falcons looked good against the Eagles. However, the Falcons still haven’t really played anyone that’s any good and they almost lost at home to the Raiders. The Bears’ one loss was on Thursday Night and...
During this past offseason, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler finally got the big receiving weapon he had wanted since his arrival in Chicago in his former Denver teammate, Brandon Marshall.
In the team's first seven games this season, Cutler and Marshall have connected on 50 passes for 675 yards and four touchdowns.
