Barring significant improvement, the Chicago Bears reportedly will likely terminate the contract of defensive coordinator Mel Tucker at the end of the season.
Opponents have gained an NFL-leading 4,911 yards against Chicago this season and the Bears defense is also last in the league in points per game. In Tucker's first season as DC, the Bears finished 30th both in yards allowed and points per game.
Cutler, 31, has thrown for 3,446 yards, 26 touchdowns and a league-high 15 interceptions this season.
