The last time Clay Matthews faced Chicago, he dropped Jay Cutler for 3.5 sacks. Rather than rush back from his hamstring injury, Matthews and the training staff kept the "big picture" in mind during his four-game absence. The "big picture" also is in play with Charles Woodson.
BEST OF MAXIM

Jay Cutler, who left Sunday's ugly loss at Minnesota with a neck injury expects to play on Sunday for Chicago, which no longer controls its fate in the NFC North.
Defensive linemen Jared Allen and Everson Griffen know that the target area for a quarterback hit isn’t very large. Griffen maintains he didn’t do anything wrong during a hit on Jay Cutler, but he’s not going to let a potential fine alter his aggressiveness.
Injuries have played a role in the Bears recent struggles. But this version of the Bears yearly collapse has many other factors.
One way or another, the Bears always seem to find a way to fall short of their potential. Whether it be injuries, play calling, personnel, or Father Time, every aspect seems to make a yearly appearance at one point or another and derail the season.
