What to Know
The Chicago Bears will take on the Cincinnati Bengals at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at home. Chicago is expected to win — but not by much — so they will need to come into the game prepared for a fight.
Last week, the Bears lost to the Los Angeles Rams on the road by a decisive 34-14 margin. QB Andy Dalton had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball once with only 5.42 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Cincinnati ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 27-24 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Among those leading the charge for the Bengals was RB Joe Mixon, who rushed for one TD and 127 yards on 29 carries.
Cincinnati’s win lifted them to 1-0 while Chicago’s loss dropped them down to 0-1. We’ll see if Cincinnati can repeat their recent success or if Chicago bounces back and reverse their fortune.
