The 3-5 Chicago Bears head to St. Louis for their second consecutive road game in November to square off against the improving 4-4 Rams.  The Bears will have to overcome a very tough Rams defense while a couple of their big offensive guns are in doubt, as Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery nurse injuries.  The patchwork offensive line will have their hands full with a very aggressive Rams front-seven.

On the other side of the ball, the Rams offense is gaining an identity behind rookie running back Todd Gurley, who’s been on a tear since making his debut a few weeks ago coming off a serious knee injury in his senior season.  Tavon Austin will give the Bears a hard time as an offensive weapon and as a returner.

To help us get the inside scoop, we’ve enlisted the help of Michael Condon of Rambin Fan for our Five Questions for Bears vs Rams.

1. Before we get into the Bears vs Rams, let’s talk about the hit on Teddy Bridgewater last week. Was that a dirty hit? Is there any concern about another Gregg Williams Bounty-gate type of scandal?

No. The hit on Teddy Bridgewater, while an unfortunate circumstance for both players involved, was not dirty. LaMarcus Joyner initiated his hit almost simultaneously with Bridgewater initiating his slide. The speed at which today’s game is played with is incredible. This paired with bad timing, lead to his injury. The idea of Bountygate 2.0 is laughable.
