Welcome to the Long Family Reunion, otherwise known as the Chicago Bears vs the St Louis Rams. The Rams are well rested, coming off their bye, while the Bears are still chiseling the mud out of their cleats. While a late season bye is always good, it couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Rams, who pulled off a stunning upset over the Colts in Indianapolis before the bye.
This will be another battle of backup quarterbacks, with Josh McCown in for Cutler while Kellen Clemens will be pressed into action while Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL. At 4-6, the Rams are on the outside looking in on the playoffs, but will look to play spoiler down the stretch with 5 of their last 6 games against NFC rivals in the playoff hunt.
The Bears can certainly come away with a win in St Louis. Here are my keys to a Chicago Bears victory.
