Cutler on passer rating vs. Rams: 'I don't feel like I did that much'
The Chicago Bears demolished the St. Louis Rams in Week 10, as Jay Cutler's streak of solid play at quarterback continued in the 37-13 win. He finished the day with an astounding 151.0 passer rating.
Although that rating was his highest of the year, Cutler didn't feel like he deserved it after the game.
"I don't feel like I did that much," Cutler said, per Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.
Cutler probably felt undeserving of such a high passer rating because two of his three touchdown passes were the result of his receivers' work after the catch rather than the throw itself. Tight end Zach Miller turned a short pass into an 87-yard touchdown; running back Jeremy Langford took a screen pass, completed behind the line of scrimmage, 83 yards for a score.
Those two scoring plays accounted for 170 of Cutler's 258 passing yards last Sunday. However, even with those two plays, the rest of his day had to be precise in order to earn a 151.0 passer rating. He did that by completing 19 out of 24 pass attempts (79.2 percent) without an interception.
Cutler is playing some surprisingly good football as of late. He has posted a passer rating over 100.0 each of the past two weeks, and his season-long rating is a very respectable 95.3.
