QB - FA
This Week Outlook
Jay Cutler started on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, but only played for a series of three plays completing 1 of 2 passes for six yards for a 56.2 passer rating. David Fales played the rest of the game.
This was probably Cuter's last game for the Dolphins. He said earlier in the week he'd only come back and play only as a starter. That's something that's not likely to happen.
Jay Cutler says he doesn't want to move again, and would entertain playing for the Dolphins again, but only as a starter. “I wouldn’t want to move again and go somewhere and just to back up,” said Cutler. Even though his return to the NFL might not have been as impactful as he had hoped, he viewed the experience in a favorable light. “It was a great experience,” Cutler said. “It’s a really good locker room, really good coaches, great organization, great owner. I had a really good time.”
Problem for Cutler, is that overall, he didn't play well this year. Miami paid him $10 million. Secondly, the Dolphins only signed him (bringing him out of retirement) as a replacement for injured starter, Ryan Tannehill. Cutler isn't likely to return. Bigger story will be if the Dolphins decide to move on from Tannehill, even if he returns healthy.
Jay Cutler threw for 19 of 38, 286 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions in a 29-13 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
The whole team failed to perform. The Dolphins committed 11 penalties for 75 yards. The offense failed to convert on third down going 0 for 8 and turned over the ball twice due to fumbles. Cutler faces the Bills next week.
Cutler completed 28 of 40 passes for 274 yards, and threw three interceptions. He also scurried twice for eight yards. After a great offensive output that took the Patriots and most folks by surprise last Monday as Miami took out the Patriots, Jay Cutler and Co. turned in a dismal performance looking like a completely different team as they lost to the Bills 24-16.
Cutler's evil twin showed up. He also fumbled four times, but recovered them himself. The stat line thanks him. Miami led in time of possession but had a paltry third down 5 of 16 (31 percent) conversion rate.
Jay Cutler completed 25 of 38 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns as the Dolphins defeated the Patriots 27-20 Monday night. Cutler has thrown for three scores only one other time this season. This was his second highest passing yardage output for the year.
This may have been the best game offensively for Cutler and the Dolphins all season. Cutler made crisp throws, moved well in the pocket, and at times looked elusive the few times he was pressured. The Dolphins gave up two sacks on the night. Cutler had thrown six interceptions the last three games - no interceptions on Monday night.
