Jay Cutler put the Bears in an early hole against the Buccaneers on Sunday with a pair of quick interceptions.
Chicago punted on its first possession and the second series ended after just four plays, when Cutler threw the ball right into Brent Grimes’s arms.
The Bears forced a three-and-out, but Cutler threw another pick on first play of the next drive. Throwing off his back foot, Cutler lofted the ball up softly and Chris Conte was able to snatch it and run it back into the end zone.
The Bears kicked a field goal on their next possession, but the following series ended when Cutler fumbled on third-and-goal from the 4.
Cutler now has more interceptions (four) than touchdowns (two) in four games this season.
