Welcome back, gang. It feels like it was only 5 days ago that we were here On The Web, blogging together.
Today we've got the Bears (1-1) headed to Arizona to play the Cardinals (0-2). It's a prime chance for Chicago to get above .500 for the first time since 2014 (!!).
620 PM - Big 3rd and 2 stop for Bilal Nichols! Cardinals go for it on 4th and 5 and Bryce Callahan gets the INT! Bears defense is OUT HERE COOKIN
615 PM - Did Khalil Mack just end Sam Bradford's career? Josh Rosen's in for the Cardinals now
610 PM - FIELD GOAL IS GOOD. Parkey splits it down the middle and the Bears lead! BEARS 16 CARDINALS 14.
600 PM- it's stupid how good Khalil Mack is:
547 PM - not great bob:

Appears to sublux/dislocate his left shoulder.
Could be a season long deal.
Hard to wear a harness and play WR.
Ultimately likely to lead to surgery, question of when. https://t.co/n72i6tHGVQ
535 PM - WHO NEEDS DEPTH WHEN *Sherrick McManis* is out here makin' plays. McManis gets a INT, Bears are in action again. Football is fun!
535 PM - All of a sudden the Bears' secondary looks REAL thin:
Kevin Toliver II will get extended action the rest of the way. https://t.co/ZKJZuUyvYA— JJ Stankevitz (@JJStankevitz) September 23, 2018
On their 48th play of the game, the Bears get their first touchdown.— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) September 23, 2018
The Cardinals have run 25 plays. They have gained 13 yards since the 1st quarter.
530 PM - TOUCHDOWN BEARS. Jordan Howard punches it in after a nice Tarik Cohen run and the Bears are back in it! CARDINALS 14, BEARS 10.

510 PM - 3 and out for the Bears on their first drive out of the break and let's just smash that panic button now and get it over with
450PM - The Bears D gets a stop and Trubisky ... throws an interception. Wasn't his fault, but still.
440 PM - Bears put together a nice drive, but opt to kick a 20 yard field goal on 4th and goal from the 2. CARDINALS 14, BEARS 3
420 PM - Give the Bears credit - after two weeks of pretty conservative play calling, they're taking their shots downfield this game. WE'RE TRYING HERE OK
406 PM - We're in the Sad Office Gif portion of the game already:
355 PM - Trubisky fumbles the ball while scrambling on 3rd down and the Cardinals recover. They score literally the next play. CARDINALS 14, BEARS 0.
Pretty horrendous start for the Bears. Looking more like those John Fox teams when they were favored.— Kevin Fishbain (@kfishbain) September 23, 2018
Well, this isn't ideal to say the least.— Matt Eurich (@MattEurich) September 23, 2018
Live look at Trubisky's awareness rating in Madden... pic.twitter.com/ZzrkXEgwv5— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) September 23, 2018
345 PM - Welllllll. Bears march down the field, get stopped on 3rd down after coverage breaks down, and Cody Parkey pushes it right. Bears have had better starts.
Weird start— Flo Ottis (@flo_ottis) September 23, 2018
330 PM - Wellllllllllll. Cardinals score in 3 minutes and it's Cardinals 7, Bears 0. Terrific start!
Inactives are here!
