Jay Cutler injury affects AFC West
He was hurt in a 31-20 win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. The Bears play the other three AFC West teams in the next three weeks. The Bears play at Oakland on Sunday, host Kansas City on Dec. 4 and plays at Denver on Dec. 11.
Denver has been anticipating the Dec. 11 game because would be Cutler’s first visit to Denver in the regular season since he was traded to the Bears in 2009.
Regardless of that drama, if Bears are without Cutler during the next three weeks, each team’s chances of beating the Bears has increased.
Have to agree with Pork Chop on this one. The road to a playoff berth just got easier for the Broncos.
During the Broncos' last four wins, the Broncos' defense has faced a pedestrian Matt Moore, a comatose Carson Palmer, a flaccid Matt Cassel, and an erratic Mark Sanchez. Coming to town in December will be the incomparable Caleb Hanie. Until then, the Broncos face a suddenly jittery Philip Rivers and rookie Christian Ponder.
Who says the Broncos can't win if they continue to score only 17 points?
