It didn't start pretty, but it sure ended well. After starting the game 1-10, Jay Cutler went on a tear, finishing the game 21-35 for 333 yards and two touchdowns.
The pick six early on was a poor read. He made up for it by driving the team down the field multiple times. The pass to Alshon Jeffery was nothing short of amazing. Cutler showed his usual ability to move around and extend plays, but he also showed his affinity to force the football at times.
There is no doubt Cutler is excited to have Brandon Marshall. He targeted Marshall 15 times, including some while the receiver was double and triple covered. Still Cutler had a good game. He looked comfortable in the offense after the initial start.
Week 1 does count no matter who the opponent is but Cutler is going to have to put together a season full body of work knocking off more quality quarterbacks in order for us to elevate him to an elite level. Still, it was a nice start on the road to what can be a special season.
