Bills vs. Bears: Cutler May Be What Secondary Needs

The Buffalo Bills' secondary compiled 22 interceptions a year ago, and the team's 28 total picks was second in the NFL. This year, the Bills haven't had the same success, netting only one interception this season - from linebacker Andra Davis, no less.

The Bills' defense feasted on turnover-prone QBs last year, contributing to their gaudy turnover numbers. Inexperienced QBs Mark Sanchez and Chad Henne, as well as turnover machine Jake Delhomme, all threw multiple picks against the Bills a year ago. This season has found the Bills facing much tougher QBs in Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Joe Flacco, as well as the matured Sanchez and Henne.

Enter Jay Cutler. Cutler's reputation around the league is that of a risk-taker. In 59 career games, Cutler has accumulated 70 interceptions, throwing at least one pick in 43 of his 59 career games. In six starts in 2010, he has seven picks. In 14 of his last 18 games, he has thrown at least one interception.

Cutler has played the Bills twice, both as a member of the Denver Broncos. During the 2006 campaign, Cutler went 23 of 39 in the season opener throwing one touchdown and one pick (to Jim Leonhard). In 2008, Cutler threw for 359 yards and an interception while posting no scoring tosses. Kawika Mitchell's pick helped secure the win for the Bills in the fourth quarter.

Long story short: every time Cutler has ever played the Bills, he has thrown an interception. It would go a long way towards the first victory of the year if he continued that trend.
