Bears falter again, lose 31-15 to Saints
Jay Cutler is paid like one of the NFL's best quarterbacks. He's been anything but the entire 2014 season.
Once again, Cutler missed throws, took sacks and made ill-advised decisions in a 31-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints Monday night. Cutler finished the game 17-31 194 yards for two touchdowns and three interceptions. It was a poor display of football as the home fans in Chicago routinely booed him, as well as most of the team.
The Saints conversely, did not play that well despite the 31 points they posted. Up 24-0 entering the fourth quarter, the Saints continued to pass repeatedly and actually allowed the Bears a chance to get back in the game. It wasn't until a late Mark Ingram touchdown that New Orleans was able to officially put the game away.
Brees' stat line was better than the team's output as he went 29-36 for 375 yards and three touchdowns.
It was a sloppy game not worthy of Monday night status. New Orleans is now 6-8 with two games remaining to potentially reach .500. If the Saints can get to .500, it would take some pressure off of the fact a team from the NFC South will reach the postseason over a potential 10-win team.
