At some point a championship team usually needs its quarterback to win a game. Not not-lose one. Win one.
The Bears got one of those from Jay Cutler on Sunday.
The end game will overshadow the middle game but the Bears (6-1) didnt so much defeat the Carolina Panthers (1-6) as escape them.
Cornerback Tim Jennings preferred to look at the result rather than steps in the process.
By this point, everyone has seen the vicious hit Bears quarterback Jay Cutler sustained last week from Lions defensive tackle Ndamakung Suh.
