Cutler completed 17 of 23 passes for 245 yards, two touchdowns and three picks in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Cutler had seven multi-interception games in 2014, but it took him until his 15th game of the year in 2015 to have such a performance. Even with a terrible ending to the year, Cutler set a new career high in QB rating this season under new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. With Gase expected to be a hot head-coaching candidate in the coming weeks, whether Cutler takes another step toward his skills' promise next season may depend on how the coaching carousel shakes out.

Cutler completed 20 of 27 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-21 victory over the Buccaneers. He also gained 21 yards on two rushes.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While the performance was unsurprisingly bland--considering the plethora of injuries on offense for Chicago--it certainly was enough to secure the road victory. Missing primary wideout Alshon Jeffrey (hamstring) for the sixth time overall this season, Cutler was limited to his second lowest yards-per-attempt figure on the season (5.78), but did manage a passing touchdown for the third straight game. The 32-year-old's 156 yards also marked his lowest total in any full game this season, and ironically, the least he has thrown for since the 130 yards he managed in his visit to Raymond James Stadium last season. Cutler was able to steer clear of any turnovers for the first time in the last four games, and will wrap up his 10th season versus the Lions at home in Week 17.

Cutler completed 26 of 37 passes in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, tallying 231 yards, two touchdowns, an interception and a fumble.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Cutler has been hurting his value without even throwing the ball. The Bears' quarterback has fumbled in five of the team's seven games since the bye, losing four. Though Cutler has earned credit this year for being more careful with the football, he is on pace for the lowest interception total of his career for a season in which he has thrown at least 400 passes, he has been sloppy as of late. In the Bear's last five games, Cutler has five touchdowns as compared to seven picks and fumbles. The Bears' next test is against their former head coach, Lovie Smith, and his defense that ranks 10th in the league in takeaways this season.

Cutler completed 19 of 31 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to Washington, adding a five-yard run and a fumble on the day.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sunday snapped a three-game stretch during which Cutler had thrown just one touchdown. The veteran quarterback enjoyed, rating wise, his second best game of the season against Washington and his third highest yardage total. It's not all good news, however. Cutler has been credited for being smarter with the football this season, but has either thrown a pick or fumbled in four straight games. With two of the Bears' final three games against teams with top-10 pass defenses, Cutler is a tough start down the stretch.

Cutler completed 18 of 31 passes for 202 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. He also gained 10 yards on four carries.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran failed to capitalize on a favorable matchup against the typically porous San Francisco defense, failing to throw a touchdown for the second time in the last three weeks and accounting for his second-lowest yardage output in a full game this season. Cutler has shown signs of life this season after a down couple of years, but his production has taken a noticeable downturn of late. He will look to right the ship in next week's home matchup with the Redskins.

Cutler passed a concussion test during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, ESPN.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Cutler was thrown to the ground on a sack early in the fourth quarter, but he passed the ensuing concussion test and played the rest of the game. It was one of his lesser efforts this season, with Cutler failing to throw a touchdown pass for the second time in three weeks. Assuming no concussion symptoms pop up in the coming days, Cutler will get another favorable home matchup next week against the Redskins.

Cutler (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Cutler was a late addition to the Bears' injury report after he was limited in Friday's practice due to the illness, but after resting up Saturday, it looks like he'll be good to go. In leading the Bears back to the edge of the NFC playoff picture, Cutler has been phenomonal over the past eight games, tossing 12 touchdowns against four interceptions while throwing for more than 200 yards in each contest.

Despite being added to the Friday injury report with an illness, Cutler is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Cutler still managed a limited practice, suggesting that his illness isn't too serious. He should have a healthy Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett (ribs) for Sunday's excellent matchup, but the Bears will have depleted wideout depth in the absence of Marquess Wilson (out-foot) and Eddie Royal (questionable-knee). The important thing is that both Cutler and Jeffery are healthy.

Cutler completed 19-of-31 passes for 200 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions in Thursday's 17-13 win over the Packers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Considering the rainy conditions that were present throughout the game, Cutler did well to avoid any major mistakes, though the Packers did come close to reeling in a couple of interceptions. In any event, after previously performing miserably for his career against the rival Packers, Cutler ended up outproducing Aaron Rodgers, and narrowly missed out on having a two-touchdown evening after Marquess Wilson was tackled at the half-yard line on a 20-yard second-quarter reception. Since missing the Bears' Week 3 tilt in Seattle with a hamstring injury, Cutler has been fantastic, posting 12 touchdowns against four interceptions during that span to go along with a rushing score.

Cutler completed 18 of 32 passes for 265 yards and an interception Sunday against the Broncos. He also rushed three times for 29 yards and lost a fumble.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Playing without starting running back Matt Forte (knee) and starting wideouts Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee), Cutler connected with seven different receivers, as Marquess Wilson led the way with four catches on seven targets for 102 yards. It was the first time all season that Cutler failed to throw a touchdown pass and it came after he threw five in the last two games. Forte and Jeffery could return next week, though they'll have a tall task against the Packers at Lambeau Field.
