The Arizona Cardinals defense allow 335.8 ypg which ranks 11th in the league. They allow 21.6 ppg as well.
They’ve done a solid job at stopping the pass allowing just 199.3 ypg through the air, which ranks fourth.
However they haven’t found a way to stop the run this season. They rank 28th allowing 136.5 yards per game on the ground.
The Chicago Bears need to capitalize on the Cardinals weaknesses early and often on Sunday afternoon.
This is a must win game for the Bears, who are calling the next two weeks a “tournament.”
Matt Forte and recently re-signed Kahlil Bell will be called upon to rack up some big yards in this game.
Forte has 903 yards and three touchdowns on 212 carries. He is averaging 4.3 ypc. He also has 41 receptions for 312 yards and one touchdown.
He is averaging just 65.5 ypg and 3.9 ypc in his last four games as the Bears have gone away from the running game rather early in games.
He has to be a focal point of the offense this week. It seemed as if he was going to...

The Bears have to keep winning if they want to make the playoffs.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.
Here's a look at week 16
Atlanta at Detroit - The Falcons destroyed the Giants last week and silenced a few critics that say they can't win the big game. I still want to see what...
Chicago Bears offensive tackle Gabe Carimi suffered a season ending injuring during the second game of his rookie season. Carimi's knee injury was never made clear by the Bears or media reports that came from the Bear beat writers. Sean Jensen of the Chicago SunTimes called Carimi's injury a knee dislocation, while Michael C Wright of ESPN radio Chicago referred to Carimi...

TEMPE, Ariz. -- We were scraping the bottom of the barrel for Cardinals story ideas today. What is there to say that hasnt already been said?

I detailed the Giants/Bears battle for the 6th seed in the Giants’ write up. The Bears should take care of their business and beat the Cardinals and Detroit. They’ve beaten everyone they’re supposed to, going 7-0 SU as favorites of 3.5 or more this year. That would put...
After starting the season 7-1, the Chicago Bears have been in a free fall, winning just one game in their last six.
The offense has continued to sputter while, not as dominate as it was earlier in the season, the defense continues to put the team in a position to win. With just two games left, the Bears will likely need to win out and have some help along the way if they want to...
After the Cardinals started the season 4-0, many wondered if they were a legitimate threat in the NFC West, but their offense continued to struggle and the team has gone 1-9 in their last 10 games.
Offensively, the Cardinals are a mess. Various quarterbacks have found their way in and out of the lineup, their offensive line has been beat up, and their running game has struggled...

Last week’s Packers Drive Rewind highlighted how a seven-play drive that featured all running plays buried the Lions. Watching it made you want to pound your chest and yell. Loudly.
This week, we’re going to stay with the tough-guy theme and highlight how the Packers defense stood tall with a goal-line stand after Ryan Grant fumbled.
