JAY CUTLER RETURNS AND LEADS BEARS TO WIN
Cutler, who missed Chicago's previous four games with a sprained left ankle reclaimed his starting job from Josh McCown earlier this week. Jay Cutler felt the pressure and knew he had to perform well. There was no other option. Shaking off two first-half interceptions, Cutler threw three touchdown passes in his first start since Nov. 10, leading the Bears to a 38-31 win on Sunday over the Cleveland Browns. Trestman had promised Cutler would keep his job once he was healthy. And after Cutler was cleared earlier this week to practice, Trestman kept his word and started the not-always-popular veteran, a decision that had some Bears fans questioning whether it might be better to stick with the hot McCown, who has thrown 13 TD passes and just one interception this season. Trestman said there was no doubt the Bears believed in Cutler.
