It wasn’t long ago that the Chicago Bears were on the fast track to an impressive 2013 campaign, but then things went south. Now hoping to recover from consecutive losses to the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints, Jay Cutler and company are 9-point favorites against the winless New York Giants on the NFL spread.
Will a date with the surprisingly futile Giants be enough to put the NFC North contenders back in a position to succeed? According to oddsmakers, the Bears hold 40/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl. Were they not in a division with equally unpredictable, yet formidable, forces like the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings, that may even be higher.
Alas, life in the NFC North isn’t about to get any easier any time soon, making the Week 6 contest with Eli Manning’s crew all the more important. While the Bears may have more going for them early on, it would be folly to underestimate how dangerous a team like New York can be when desperation starts to kick in.
The Giants may...

Have you every had a job where you didn't really care for anyone and even though there was this whole team atmosphere being fostered you felt like you were all alone? Yeah, that kind of sucks.
That is definitely not the case for the Chicago Bears and their dynamic duo, quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
Thanks to their previous...
All the Twitter backlash of QB Jay Cutler and his inability to hold the ball is irrelevant to the 358 yards passing, 2 touchdowns and passer rating of 128.1, with NO interceptions. There were numerous balls dropped, one of which was an in-the-money catch that WR Earl Bennett let bounce off his chest. The double coverage on WR Brandon Marshall forced Cutler to move the ball around...
Welcome back gamers to the best of week 5 in the fantasy universe. We had plenty of shootouts this week, making for some high scoring matchups. Sit back and take it all in.
Bronze: Jay Cutler
Who would’ve thought we’d see Jay up here? Cutler shocked us all on Sunday, having one of his most productive outings in a long time, and without abusing the ability...
We are already in the second quarter of the 2013 NFL season, and for fantasy football owners whose teams haven’t started on the right foot, the next few weeks are crucial to their chances of making the playoffs.
One of the toughest decisions each week is determining which quarterback to start, especially for people who don’t play in a two-quarterback per week league. We all...
Everyone knows that the ‘Thursday Night Football’ game is a nice link between Monday and Sunday games, but produces cringe-worthy television. Chicago and New York are fortunate enough to get their mandatory mid-week game out of the way early.
Both teams head into their night tilt looking at was has gone wrong more than what has gone right. The Bears have lost two straight games...
Tim Jennings intercepted two passes, including one for a touchdown, and Jay Cutler threw two touchdown passes as the Chicago Bears held on to beat the New York Giants 27-21 on Thursday night football at Soldier Field in Chicago. The win assures the Bears of at least a tie at the top of the NFC North standings at 4-2. Meanwhile, [...]
The defense in the first quarter played by far their best of the entire season. As the game progressed they seemed to get less pressure because the team had a lead and they went to more of a safe shell. That led to them getting picked apart more by Jay Cutler. The Bears starting to get chunks of yards on the ground, and Alshon Jeffery started to give a performance worthy of Joey...
New York Giants (+8) at Chicago Bears – Thursday NightEli’s coming, and so are the rest of the New York football Giants, to Soldier Field for a Thursday night clash against the Old Man’s Bears. When these two teams met in Chicago in 2010, Jay Cutler played the part of the Pinata at the “Victor Cruz Salsa Extravaganza.” Not this time, at least it better not be this time...
New York made Chicago work a little harder than expected for the win everybody presumed the Bears would get. If anything, it just made Eli’s mistakes more dramatic. Which is kind of nice. Eli Manning interceptions in the second half of 30-point blowouts aren’t nearly as fun. So thanks for that.Cheers to Jay Cutler for kicking his history of Thursday Night Football struggles,...
I'm going to do a different format for these games. I didn't really like the old one very much.
Jay Cutler (198 DYAR, 4.7% DVOA, 68.9 QBR, 1,295 yards)
Eli Manning (**** this guy) (-181 DYAR, -24.4% DVOA, 34.2 QBR, 1,338 yards)
Eli Manning is my least favorite player in all of sports. Growing up, I was a Chargers fan for some reason (I started really following football...
