Jay Cutler's NFL-leading streak sums up his impressive 2015 season

Published Add your comment

Coming into the 2015 NFL season, the Chicago Bears couldn't give away their quarterback Jay Cutler.

After a 2014 season that had included several embarrassing performances and a league-high 18 interceptions, there were few at the Windy City franchise that wanted to keep the highly-paid QB at Soldier Field.


15 games later, however, and, although 2015 hasn't been an unmitigated success for the Bears, Cutler has been one of the bright spots of the season - a point emphasised by one surprising fact that was brought to our attention today by Reddit user DaBears31.

Jay Cutler has currently gone 15 straight games without throwing more than one interception - 14 in 2015 following a zero INT game to end the '14 season.

This impressive run is the longest active streak in the NFL heading into the final game of the 2015 regular season.

As noted by ESPN, the oft-maligned quarterback is the only one of his peers to have started at least 10 games this year and have zero multi-interception games.

It is quite the turnaround for Cutler who, with just eight total interceptions this year and one game left to play, he is on track to record his third fewest number of interceptions in an NFL season.


Credit must be given to the 32-year-old for not allowing himself to suffer under the weight of criticism that was building over the summer - especially when you consider the likes of Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Eddie Royal have been missing for long periods.

There's another man, though, who should be lauded for helping to create a new and improved Cutler; Chicago's offensive coordinator Adam Gase.

The highly respected coach has worked wonders in his first season with the Bears and, in harnessing the talents of Cutler in 2015, he has set himself up as one of the most highly coveted candidates for the numerous head coaching roles that are sure to become vacant in the comign weeks.
