This is a match up between the two charter franchises of the NFL. They even shared the city of Chicago for a time, but the Bears have been triumphant most of the time. 

This game seems pretty straightforward with the Bears defense appearing relentless and dominant through two games of the season and now squaring off against an Arizona offense that has managed just six total points through two games.

As I mentioned last week, the Bears haven't done well as favorites but they covered Monday night, sending yours truly to .500 on the season. However, the Bears offense has been far from dominant thus far and should even be described as anemic at times.

There is a lot of concern around second year quarterback Mitch Trubisky as he navigates this offense for the first time. Could this Cardinals defense, which is allowing 29 points per game and 430.5 yards per game, be the catalyst for a Bears breakthrough? They have allowed the fifth-most passing yards in the league, while Chicago comes in with the fourth-to-last pass yards in the league.
