MINNEAPOLIS -- Jay Cutler's Most Valuable Player campaign ended here, on the frozen carpet of Whatever You Want to Call It Field, in a game that should've been sponsored by a blindfold and a bottle of Old Grand Dad.
The Bears mercifully won their season-ender, 17-13, over the hapless Minnesota Vikings to end their season at 8-8. It was their first win without Cutler in six tries. It meant absolutely nothing except avoiding a losing record. It was nearly impossible to watch.
All I got out of it was closure and another reminder how much this team misses Cutler, who didn't make the trip.
