Week 8: at New England Patriots

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Jay Cutler had a rough game vs. Miami, with 21/34 for 190 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, and three sacks taken for -18 yards. Though Alshon Jeffery (seven targets for 2/9/0 receiving) and Brandon Marshall (10 for 6/48/0) saw plenty of passes last week, there was reportedly an altercation between Cutler and his star receivers after the 14-27 loss. Martellus Bennett chipped in five receptions for 58 yards receiving and Matt Forte handled the TD pass with seven targets for 6/60/1. We'll see if the airing of differences helps get Cutler and company back in synch for week 8. The Patriots' pass D is ranked first in the NFL averaging 208.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with 11 passing scores given out vs. seven interceptions (tied for eighth in the NFL) and 18 sacks (tied-10th) generated to date. Geno Smith was limited to 20/34 for 205 net yards, one TD with zero interceptions, while the defensive front caused three sacks for -21 yards of offense. Two games back, Kyle Orton threw 24/38 for 268 net yards, two TDs and one interception, while being sacked five times for -31 yards. However, on Tuesday the news broke out of Boston that Chandler Jones has a hip injury that may cost him a month of games - Jones is the Patriots' best pass rusher, so Cutler has caught a break for this game. Keep an eye on the Patriots Wednesday injury report on forwards, and remember that the Patriots play games with those reports - bottom line is that it looks like Jones is out for this game. This is a tough matchup for Cutler and company, though not as tough as it was when Jones was still expected to be in the lineup.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 3 / 1 rec)

Morgan caught a touchdown pass Sunday. That's all he caught, too. Morgan's single reception is the only pass Cutler attempted in the direction of someone not named Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett. Don't expect much from Morgan this season. He's not worth a spot on your roster, even with a touchdown reception in tow. Bears pass-catchers have accrued 230 targets through six games this season, 198 of which went to Marshall, Jeffery, Forte and Bennett. Morgan and Santonio Holmes have split time this season as the Bears' No. 3 receiver. You could make an argument that Cutler has a better chance of throwing an interception than completing a pass to a Morgan or a Holmes.
