Minnesota Vikings (6-4) at Chicago Bears (7-3)
Jay Cutler might be the most undervalued player in the NFL. In the last 2 seasons, when he starts, the Bears are 14-5 and score 26.8 points per game. When he doesn’t, they are 1-6 and average just 13.1 points per game. That isn’t all him. For instance, Matt Forte missed a few of those games as well and Caleb Hanie, who started 5 of those games in his absence, is one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL.
Still, it shows he has a huge value to this team. He doesn’t put up flashy stats and his body language can be off putting, but the numbers don’t lie. They don’t have a ton of offensive talent. Brandon Marshall is great, but they don’t have another receiver and their offensive line is atrocious. Cutler has done a great job of leading drives in spite of this and he is actually very tough to sack.
I thought they’d survive without him against the 49ers because Jason Campbell is much better than Hanie and because Forte was healthy and because...
BEST OF MAXIM
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is starting Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings after missing a game because of a concussion.
Cutler was limited in practice this week. He left the game against Houston two weeks ago after a helmet-to-helmet hit by the Texans' Tim Dobbins and did not make the trip to San Francisco, where the Bears were blown out on Monday.

Will Jay Cutler play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings? That question is tough to answer right now but it should be answered tomorrow.
Despite Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith’s comments over the past two weeks that Cutler was on track or “looking good” it is worth nothing that Cutler has not been cleared to play. Cutler also has not suggested that he would play or...

Jay Cutler’s Eff You ‘Stache
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has passed his final concussion test. He'll be active for Sunday's game against the Vikings. SOURCE: Jason La Canfora, CBSFantasy Spin:Fantasy owners can let out a sigh of relief. Cutler threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns in his one game against the Vikings last season.
"It doesn't mean anything, it's just something."
Those were the actual words NFL Countdown's Tom Jackson used to describe his displeasure with Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler walking into Soldier Field Sunday morning without appearing to talk to someone within ESPN's camera shot. Jay Cutler has been criticized for a galaxy's worth of things...
It’s easy to dislike Jay Cutler.
He, the Chicago quarterback of perpetual grumpiness (although Smokin’ Jay Cutler was magical), completely great or completely terrible performances, and just enough talent and underachieving to make someone unhappy, has plenty of critics.
This year, he’s been at it again. He feuded with coaches on the sideline. He called out teammates (also...
Two key players have been questionable heading into week 12 of the NFL regular season. Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has been dealing with lasting effects of a concussion suffered against the Houston Texans. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has been nursing an ankle injury and while he did play a limited number of snaps last week, he was officially listed as questionable.
CHICAGO -- On the Bears' first two offensive plays against Minnesota on Sunday, quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte botched a handoff for a lost fumble, and Cutler tripped over a teammate and sacked himself for a five-yard loss. But the Vikings couldn't do much with the opportunities, and Cutler then unleashed an effective short passing game, the even more...
