Although the Bears and Chargers have only played three times in the past 15 years, quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Phillip Rivers have quite a history.

Back when Cutler played for the Broncos, the two quarterbacks would face each other twice a year.

Both former first-round picks, the rivalry between the two really took off during a Monday Night Football game on Christmas Eve, 2007.

After the Broncos failed to convert on fourth down in the fourth quarter of a contested game, Rivers was seen trash-talking Cutler from the sidelines.

The rivalry only intensified later, when Cutler said in an interview that he’s “just not that big of a fan” of Rivers.

Cutler has faced Rivers just once since joining the Bears in 2009, a 31-20 victory at Soldier Field.

The two will face off once again Monday night as the Bears travel to San Diego. Chicago (2-5) is currently a 4.5-point underdog.
