Here's our weekly look at the Bears from a fantasy-football perspective:

Bears QB Jay Cutler has cut down on mistakes, throwing 10 touchdown passes and just three interceptions in the past five games, and he'll be facing New England's 31st-ranked pass defense in Week 14. Quarterbacks have been able to rack up yards against the Patriots, but the weather (snow is in the forecast) could be a factor in the game Sunday. Moving the ball through the air could be more challenging for both teams.

Cutler owners also have to keep in mind that Bill Belichick is a master at finding weaknesses in an opponent and exploiting them. New England's pass rush has been lackluster for much of the season, but Belichick could target the Bears' offensive tackles — OLT Frank Omiyale and ORT J'Marcus Webb both have been shaky at times — with blitzes.

Cutler is worth considering for a start Sunday. This is a riskier matchup for him than it might appear to be at first glance, though.
