Jay Cuter was intercepted twice and fumbled in the Bears 37-10 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bears were coming in fresh off the bye and two weeks removed from their best performance of the year against the Vikings at home. But the bye week couldn’t change this team’s fortune this season.
Cutler was picked off twice in the first quarter. The second interception was run into the endzone by former Bear Chris Conte. Cuter finished the day with 182 yards passing and just one touchdown. The lone score came off a hail mary at the end of the first half that bounced in to his chest of Cameron Meredith in the back of the endzone.
Jameis Winston played a much better game for the Bucs. The second year signal caller gashed the Bears defense for 312 yards passing, and a pair of scores to go with an interception.
Injuries continue to plaque this team. The Bears lost the entire right side of their offensive line in the first half. Guard Kyle Long was carted off the field with an ankle injury, and tackle Bobby Massie left with a concussion. Defensive lineman Will Sutton left early in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and did not return.
