Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall shine in Chicago victory

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jay Cutler had his best game of the season on Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys. It was the quarterback's first interception-free game, and his completion percentage (75) was higher than in any previous game. Overall, Cutler completed 18 of 24 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

Cutler owes much of his success to wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who set a season high for receiving yards. Marshall came down with seven passes for 138 yards and a touchdown. It was his second hundred-yard effort of the year. Said Marshall,

"We have great chemistry on and off the field. We're like brothers; both passionate about the game. Tonight (Cutler) had a little rhythm. He pushed us. He challenged us all throughout the week and I think it transferred over tonight."

This is Brandon Marshall's first season in Chicago. He spent four years in Denver before playing in Miami for two seasons.

Next week Marshall and the Bears will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are allowing over 400 total yards per game.
