Bears QB Jay Cutler popped the cork on his 2014 campaign Friday night with a convincing performance for the Bears in a 34-28 preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
After Marc Trestman's team went three-and-out on their first series, Cutler marched the Bears on a 13-play, 69-yard drive that chewed through Philly's defense with authority. The drive was capped by Cutler's pinpoint touchdown pass between a pair of Eagles defenders to intriguing tight end Zach Miller up the seam.
"Yeah, three-and-out, I figured we would get back into it and get another drive, which I'm glad we did," Cutler told reporters, per Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com. "We were backed up a few times, overcame a few penalties. So, it was a good drive for us."
Cutler displayed midseason chemistry with Brandon Marshall and finished his night with a passer rating of 112.7 before the backups took over.
