CHICAGO -- It was just a singular bad throw. It was just a preseason interception.
But it was a Jay Cutler interception, a repudiation of another defensive gift laid at his cleats, a pick that causes Twitter riots and eye rolls and lost jobs. A Jay Cutler interception contains multitudes.
As the offense continued a multi-year journey for an identity, the Bears' first-team defense wreaked havoc against San Diego, the special teams looked solid, and the Bears held on to win, 33-28.
New Bears meet the old Bears.
