Both the Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Rams need to get their acts together.
In a stacked NFC North, it is unlikely that the Bears are going to the playoffs, but they do need to figure out if this team can win with Mitch Trubisky under center. The Rams have taken a few unexpected losses this season, and while last years Super Bowl finalist is not in danger of missing the playoffs entirely, they do sit behind the Seahawks and the 49ers in their division.
Jared Goff just hasnt been himself this year in Los Angeles, and that problem came to a head last week against Pittsburgh. Converting only 1 of 14 third downs, the Rams managed just 12 points (a touchdown, field goal, and safety) in a 17-12 loss.
Chicago looked somewhat promising early in the season despite its limited quarterback play. The idea was that their defense and running game could overcome Trubiskys deficiencies. The defense has remained stout (8th in Defensive DVOA) and the running game has improved, but most weeks, it hasnt been enough. The Bears only narrowly beat Detroit even with Lions backup quarterback Jeff Driskel filling in for Matt Stafford.
Lets see if either of these teams can use this week to turn things around. Heres everything you need to know to live stream Bears vs. Rams, including what to watch for on the field.
