Fresh off of their first win of the 2018 season, the Chicago Bears are back in action on Sunday, looking to improve to 2-1 with a win over the Arizona Cardinals

Monday night’s win was nice. However, its time to move on.

The Chicago Bears’ next task is to take on the Arizona Cardinals down in the desert.

The Cardinals are winless through two games, and have scored just six points in their first eight quarters.

Led by veteran quarterback Sam Bradford, the Cardinals are a complete mess on offense, totaling just 365 yards of offense through those two contests.

Offensive struggles are no stranger to the Bears, who have had their own fair share of trouble on the offensive side of the ball. Contrary to the Cardinals, the Bears defense has been productive enough to overshadow the slumping offense, leading the Bears to a 1-1 record.

Pre-season expectations for the Cardinals weren’t exactly high, but the Cardinals are not the horrible team that their record suggests. The Cardinals are just two seasons removed from their last playoff birth, and still have a roster that contains perennial Pro-Bowlers David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and Patrick Peterson.
