The Arizona Cardinals drew first blood, on the first kickoff of the game. David Johnson took the opening kickoff 108 yards to give the Cardinals a 7-0 lead, but the Bears would have a response.
Despite Alshon Jeffery being out for this game with a leg injury, Jay Cutler had no problem connecting with Josh Bellamy on a 48-yard strike on the Bears' second possession. Cutler was a perfect 6/6 for 90 yards in the 1st quarter, and despite taking a couple of hits, looked great.
The Bears defense looked decent in the 1st quarter, but that's thanks more to coaching that talent. Jared Allen looks more like a placeholder than a pass-rusher, but it's still early in the game.
Can the Chicago Bears pull off the upset at Soldier Field? Stay tuned...
