Bears are nearly touchdown favorites over Cardinals for Week 3


Bears are nearly touchdown favorites over Cardinals for Week 3

After facing a pair of elite quarterbacks to start the season, the Bears get a little bit of an easier matchup with the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.

Sam Bradford has struggled under center so far this season, and fans have been clamoring for rookie quarterback Josh Rosen to get the start. The team could possible turn to Mike Glennon too.

The 0-2 Cardinals are among the worst teams in the NFL thus far, and so Las Vegas sportsbooks see the Bears earning win No. 2 on Sunday.

Chicago favored by six points against Arizona, according to Vegas Insider, and that might even be selling them short.

The Cardinals have scored six points total in two games this season, with their one touchdown coming in Week 1 against Washington. They were shutout last week against the Los Angeles Rams.

Las Vegas is expecting a low-scoring game regardless, with the lowest over/under (38 points) set for any game this week.

If Bradford can right the ship, the Arizona can give the Bears a run for their money this week, but if not, a QB change could be in store for the Cardinals.

Jordan Howard called the Bears' NFC North title back in February

Jordan Howard called the Bears' NFC North title back in February

Not sure if you knew, but the Bears won the NFC North earlier today. 

That, of course, means it's time for Bears players to flex all over everyone. 

OL Charles Leno started it off with a midfield proposal, so now it's Jordan Howard's turn. 

Right after the game, Howard retweeted his own account -- which is a pretty strong flex on its own -- from back in February:

Why yes, that *is* Jordan Howard guaranteeing a NFC North title back in February. Usually digging up old tweets is a surefire disaster, but this one actually turned out pretty well. 

2018 NFC North Champs. Jordan Howard's been sayin' it all year. 

Eddie Jackson sprains ankle on game-sealing interception

Eddie Jackson sprains ankle on game-sealing interception

CHICAGO, IL -- Eddie Jackson has a knack for ending games. His latest effort, though, might have come at a cost. 

Jackson, who sealed the Bears' NFC Title-winning 24-17 win with an interception, injured his ankle on the play:

The Bears are calling it a right ankle sprain. The foot's condition will be monitored for a few days before any more decisions are made.

"We'll monitor that and probably know more here in the next 24-48 hours," Matt Nagy said. "We'll see how it goes, communicate more here in the next couple days, and get it looked at and know exactly where it's at." 

For what it's worth, head coach Matt Nagy admitted he was relieved to hear it was only an ankle sprain, given the graphic nature of the injury. 

After the game, Jackson was seen moving around the locker room in a walking boot.
