Who says Jay Cutler is bad in crunch time?

The Bears quarterback led his 12th fourth-quarter, game-winning touchdown drive last night to lift the Bears to a 22-19 win at San Diego.

Cutler’s 12 drives are the most in the NFL since he came to Chicago in 2009.

With the Bears trailing 19-14 and less than eight minutes remaining in the fourth, Cutler led a 10-play, 80-yard drive capped by a juggling touchdown catch by Zach Miller.

In addition, Cutler’s first-half touchdown pass to tight end Martellus Bennett was his 138th as a Bear – surpassing Hall of Famer Sid Luckman for the team’s all-time record.

Cutler shook off two first-half turnovers to finish 27-45 for 345 yards and two touchdowns. Alshon Jeffery had a game-high 151 yards on 10 receptions.
