Bears WR Kevin White: Blame me for Jay Cutler interception

Kevin White took the blame for Jay Cutler’s interception Sunday, in which he sat down in his route rather than run it toward the right sideline.

“I should’ve kept running out like it was drawn up,” White told ESPN 1000’s Football Night in Chicago. “So, it was a look that we hadn’t seen and I should’ve kept running out and tried to make a play. But those are mistakes that happen. But they obviously can’t happen again. I just have to move on from it.”

Cutler threw the ball outside, and right to safety Andre Hal. Cutler gestured toward the sideline, telling White that’s where he should have gone.

“The safety was down and he bit on the play fake,” White told the radio station. “We didn’t expect him to bite that much. If he was on my hip, we were expected to run out. If it’s zone, (we’re) expected to sit. Since he bit like that, that wasn’t a look that we saw.”

White, the No. 7 pick in 2015, missed last season after shin surgery. Sunday was his first NFL game.
