5. Conclusion and Score Prediction
With a win this Sunday, the Bears could jump to above .500 for the first time since week three of the 2014 season. The Cardinals will come out and play a better game than most expect, making the Bears earn points. While we know what this defense can do, it’s likely that we finally begin to see the Bears defense emerge as a consistent difference maker in this game. If Mitchell Trubisky can continue to develop his chemistry with receivers, while the defense forces some turnovers, then the Bears could establish a lead against the Cardinals at halftime. The goal for this game is to start fast and finish strong. The Bears have shown flashes of that, but have had some mistakes along the way. This game presents the perfect opportunity for the Bears to figure everything out going forward.
Prediction: Bears 28, Cardinals 14
