The Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler left the game at the start of the second half of the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, who lead 14-0, after three quarters. Todd Collins went under center and has done little to help put any points on the board for the Bears. Cutler is reportedly out with a knee injury with no signs of return. He looks like a defeated quarterback.
Neither offense has been able to put up any points on the board in the second half, though the Packers came close. On the Bears' six-yard line, Aaron Rodgers threw a pass intended for Donald Driver. However, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher returned the ball to his 45 yard line for a 39 yard gain. Rodgers had the tackle to prevent a touchdown.
On the following drive, it appeared that Nick Collins picked off Todd Collins, but after a review the play was reversed to an incomplete pass to Earl Bennett.
Caleb Hanie, the Bears' third quarterback, entered the game at the start of the fourth quarter. Cutler and Collins are ineligible to return to today's game.
