The top story line following Sunday’s home loss for the Bears was of course Jay Cutler's fourth quarter exit.
Bears quarterbacks were sacked once each, but the Lions were credited with 11 quarterback hits and five tackles for loss.
The Detroit Lions defense prepared all week as if they would be facing a razor-sharp Jay Cutler.
Cutler’s groin wasn’t the problem on Sunday. His ankle was and, in the end, so was his passing.
The Bears are 5-4 and trailing the Detroit Lions (6-3) almost irretrievably in the NFC North division after Sunday’s 21-19 loss.
