Later this evening the Chicago Bears will take on the Arizona Cardinals in what will be an important game for two teams looking to rebound after losing 2016 seasons. The Bears stumbled to a 3-13 record in the second year of the Ryan Pace rebuild, but the Cardinals were a disappointing 7-8-1, one year after winning the NFC West with a 13-3 record.
The Bears are 0-1 this preseason, while the Cardinals sit at 1-1. Both teams will play their starters longer than last week, but this is still the preseason, so expect to see them both finish with the backups.
