Chicago Bears desperately hoping Jay Cutler can finally find success vs. Packers

Jay Cutler has never played well against the Packers' defense, but he'll need to on Sunday if the Bears are going to avoid a third straight loss.

Having lost five straight games against the Green Bay Packers dating back to the beginning of the 2010 season, the Chicago Bears hope that quarterback Jay Cutler can finally shake off his struggles against the team and land a key victory on Sunday, John Mullin of CSN Chicago writes.

Historically, Cutler has struggled badly against the Bears' biggest rival since becoming the organization's franchise quarterback four years ago. He's led Chicago to numerous successes in his time with the team, but his inability to beat the Packers has always loomed over his up-and-down Bears career.

In seven games against Green Bay, Cutler has an abysmal 60.5 quarterback rating, throwing 15 interceptions to just eight touchdowns. Against the other 28 teams in the league, Cutler has a 71-to-47 touchdown-to-interception ratio while wearing a Bears uniform.

This season, Cutler has completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,495 yards with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
