Jay Cutler and the Bears' new-look offense aims to erase memories of the the team's 31-3 preseason-opening loss to Denver on Saturday night from Soldier Field, as Chicago will welcome No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins to town for preseason game two.
Cutler knows full well that his two most talented wide receivers, Brandon Marshall and rookie Alshon Jeffrey, can each make plays from virtually anywhere on the field, but is especially impressed with the redzone presence each guy provides. "They make my job a lot easier down there," Cutler told The Chicago Tribune. "And if you put Kellen Davis (6-7) in the mix, we have three dudes taller than 6-3. It's going to be fun just putting the ball up and hopefully getting some touchdowns."
Chicago was completely unable to get anything going with Cutler, tailback Matt Forte, and a slew of defensive players out of the lineup for the 28-point loss to Denver, but will welcome its franchise quarterback back into the mix for Saturday's game. The game is set to kick off at 7:00 p.m. CST from Soldier Field, and will be televised on local affiliates CBN/WFLD in addition to being provided on WBBM radio.
