Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears:
While his pass attempts are way down this season, Jay Cutler has definitely improved his efficiency and lowered his interception totals. Over the past two weeks, Cutler has averaged 240 passing yards and 2.5 touchdowns against the Lions and the Eagles.
Cutler gets a match up this week against the 31st ranked Patriots pass defense, which relinquishes 276.8 passing yards per game. Additionally, the New England offense will likely score early, as they did against the New York Jets, forcing Chicago to move the ball through the air and lengthen the game.
Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens:
Over his last seven games, Joe Flacco has taken his game to the next level. During this stretch, Flacco has compiled 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions while passing for fewer than 250 yards just once.
This week, Flacco will be playing a Texans secondary that has truly struggled this season. Houston is dead last in passing yards allowed in the NFL with 287 per game. Flacco should have a big game, one in the neighborhood of 300 yards passing and two or possibly three touchdowns.
