I wasn't sure quite what to expect out of Jay Cutler in his first-ever postseason game. Cutler, who was brought to Chicago to give the team an edge and stability at the QB position, did not disappoint. Cutler and the Bears quickly ended the storybook run of the Seattle Seahawks and advanced to the NFC Championship game winning 35-24.
The game was not as close as the score would indicate. The Bears' defense dominated the game. Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck had an amazing fourth quarter throwing for three TDs. I think Chicago packed it in after they were up 28-3 heading into the fourth quarter.
Jay Cutler had an amazing first postseason game and is now set to host bitter rival Green Bay next week for the right to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Cutler finished with 274 yards passing and two TDs. He also rushed for 43 more yards and had two TDs on the ground.
You can say all you want about how it was only the lonely Seattle Seahawks, but remember, this was a team that shut down the mighty New Orleans Saints just a week prior.
Good effort by the Bears' defense, but an even better one by Jay Cutler.
