Cowboys pressure fails to rattle Jay Cutler
Cutler was sacked twice, fumbling on a DeMarcus Ware, strip sack, but overall the pressure didn't seem to bother him.
According to ESPN's Stats and Information Department, Culter had completed just 45 percent of his passes against five or more pass rushers, second worst in the league. But in the second half, Cutler was fantastic against added pressure.
Cutler went 6-6 for 127 yards in the second half against pressures of five or more.
"We didn't get to him enough but (if) you know what's coming at you, you know how to get the ball out of your hands," said Ware, who finished with three tackles along with the sack.
Cutler was hit three times by the Cowboys defense.
"We have to do our job week in and week out," center Roberto Garza said. "Obviously on a big stage like this, against a good defense, there was a little more pressure on us. But that's part of what we do. We're excited to go out there and execute our game plan. There's a lot we can clean (up), but our skills did a hell of a job (Monday)."
