For the spectators who showed up to Sunday’s game at Soldier Field between the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals, wind and rain played a factor the entire afternoon. The Cardinals — who play indoors — handled the elements better and convincingly defeated the Bears, 33-22.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray returned for his first game back since playing the Packers on Oct. 28, 2021. Murray threw just 15 times but two of them went for touchdowns, including his first one that went for a 20-yard score to DeAndre Hopkins on a fourth-and-2 play early in the first quarter. That score was set up by an Andy Dalton interception on the Bears’ first possession of the game.

Andy Dalton and the Chicago Bears struggled with turnovers

Dalton ended up throwing four interceptions on the day, but he could thank tight end, Cole Kmet, for his second one. After Hopkins’ touchdown, the Bears were driving and made it to the Cardinals’ 20. On third-and-6, Dalton threw an accurate pass to Kmet, but he deflected the ball into the air and safety Budda Baker intercepted it and returned the ball 77 yards.

The one bright spot for the Bears was running back David Montgomery. He finished the game with 21 carries for 90 yards and scored a one-yard touchdown run. He also caught eight passes for 51 yards.
