Chicago Bears vs Oakland Raiders 1st Quarter Open Thread

Join us inside for live updates and instant analysis of today's Chicago Bears game!

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears are hoping to avoid an 0-4 start to the 2015 season, and the Oakland Raiders are hoping to play spoilers while being favored on the road for the first time in recent memory.

We know the storylines, and have covered this game all week... John Fox and coordinators Adam Gase and Vic Fangio will have their team ready to play, but will need to come out with a gameplan that will last beyond just the first half of the game.

Will the defense make a difference with some new faces rotating in?  Can Pernell McPhee, Lamarr Houston, and/or Willie Young get anything going?  Will Sam Acho make an impact?

Can the offense get anything going?  Will the running game take over since the passing game is crippled?  Will Adam Gase run with all three running backs this afternoon?

Lots to watch out for.

This is your 1st Quarter Open Thread... Have fun!
