The Chicago Bears will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, where Chicago is looking to build on their Thanksgiving win against a talented Arizona squad.
The Bears are coming off a narrow victory over the winless Detroit Lions, where they needed a last-second field goal to beat the worst team in the league. Now, they welcome the best team in the NFL, the 9-2 Cardinals, in a game that could get ugly quick.
There’s absolutely no confidence in Chicago to pull off an upset as 96% of experts are picking the Cardinals to beat the Bears on Sunday, according to NFL Pick Watch. Which isn’t really a surprise given the Cardinals are one of the top teams in the NFC while the Bears are struggling.
Chicago is currently 7.5-point home underdogs, according to Tipico Sportsbook, which makes sense given Arizona is the top team in the NFC and Chicago the 14th. Any hope of an upset is going to require flawless football from all phases as the Cardinals look to maintain home field advantage and that first-round bye.
Can the Bears pull off an upset over a talented Cardinals team? Or will Arizona cruise to another easy win and send Chicago to a new losing streak?
We’ll see Sunday when the Bears and Cardinals kick things off at Noon CT on FOX.
