Jay Cutler sings music to the Giants' and Bucs' ears.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler says he fully expects to play the entire game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, which has to put a smile on the faces of the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"(Coach Lovie Smith) said prior to that game that we're going to be playing, we're going to be going and we're going to be full go on Sunday," Cutler said. "So that's what we expect."
For the Giants to make the playoffs, they need to first beat the Washington Redskins and then hope for Chicago to beat the Packers later that day. The Bucs also need Chicago to win, and they need to hope the Giants lose against the Redskins as well. It wouldn't be hard to blame Lovie Smith for resting his starters, as the Bears have already earned a first round bye and their chances at the #1 seed are very slim with Atlanta taking on the Carolina Panthers, however, Bears fans will probably attest that they never want to lose to the Packers, plus this is a team that the Bears could possibly see in the playoffs if they were to win on Sunday, so wouldn't it be in their best interest to go ahead and try and eliminate them now?
