Jay Cutler showed incredible poise under pressure in the fourth quarter in Week 5 as the Chicago Bears battled the Kansas City Chiefs, and he saved his best for last.
With just 23 seconds left on the clock in the fourth quarter, Cutler hit Matt Forte in the back left portion of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown. The play almost never happened, however. Cutler, in the shotgun, didn’t get the handle on a poor snap, and the ball ended up at his feet.
Keeping his composure, the veteran calmly tossed a perfect pass to running back Matt Forte, who easily hauled in the game-winner.
