Lance Briggs said nothing changes for the defense even with Collins making his first start since 2007.
"Obviously, you don't want your starting quarterback out but this is football, it could be any player at any time and the next guy has to be ready," Briggs said. "That's the way this thing works. No, I don't want Cutler out of the game. I don't want to see him out. But the facts are he's not going to be playing this week. Todd Collins, Caleb Hanie will get the job done."
Briggs said he and his defensive mates don't feel any more or less pressure to perform with Cutler sidelined.
"It's on us every week," he said. "That's the onus of the defense. You can't finish a game like we did last week."
