Bears quarterback Jay Cutler turned in a strong performance in Sunday’s 24-21 loss to the Washington Redskins. Cutler completed 19 of 31 passes for 315 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He had a passer rating of 117.

Considering what Cutler has had to work with this season in terms of personnel, what he has done has been nothing short of remarkable.

In a season where he has missed having rookie first-round draft pick Kevin White, and has been without Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, and Martellus Bennett for multiple games — not to mention his safety valve, Matt Forte — Cutler is excelling at a high level.
