Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will appeal the $10,000 fine for taunting he received during the Bears Nov. 25 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will appeal the $10,000 fine he received for taunting in the Bears Nov. 25 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Cutler was fined for flipping the ball to Vikings cornerback A.J. Jefferson after a five yard scramble in the first quarter. He was penalized 15 yards for taunting at the end of the play.

Cutler said on his radio show on Monday that he was shocked by the fine and was planning to appeal. The Bears beat the Vikings 28-10 to improve to 8-3, but lost to the Seattle Seahawks last week to fall to 8-4.

Cutler has passed for 2,235 yards, 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, completing 61.2 percent of his passes. Cutler and the Bears travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings again on Sunday, Dec. 9. They are currently tied with the Green Bay Packers at the top of the NFC North Division.
