Jay Cutler said he “missed some throws that I usually make” in the Bears’ 40-32 loss in Detroit on Sunday.
The quarterback threw three interceptions and fumbled the ball on a Ndamukong Suh sack that was recovered and returned for a touchdown.
Speaking on his ESPN 1000 radio show Monday night, Cutler praised his offensive line and took blame for mistakes.
“You take two or three throws out of there,” he said, “I think it’s a different ballgame.”
Cutler said he “probably had a little bit more to do with this loss than those three wins.”
Cutler denied reports he was sick before the game, but said, coyly, that he wouldn’t admit it if he were.
