Only One Reason Cutler Won't Shred Lions D

The Lions may have 30+ new players on their roster in 2009, but their defense remains woeful through the first three games of the season.

They have allowed the most points (86) in the NFC North and the 3rd most in the NFC. There's only one reason Cutler shouldn't put up massive numbers on Sunday: Matt Forte. If Forte (and the O-line) can get untracked, then Cutler may not have to resort to 4th quarter heroics for the the third week in a row.

But if the Bears run game stalls again, Cutler will surely post 300+ passing yards. And as fun as it is to watch him work his craft, it's undoubtedly better to see Forte get it going this week. Either way, the Lions haven't won a road game since who knows when. So if the Bears somehow lose to Detroit at Soldier Field, it will be an extremely disappointing bye week for the entire city.

Here's the NFL Films preview of the Bears/Lions game:
