Bears vs. Rams Game Info
The Bears have made a quarterback switch. However, it is not the switch the fans are wanting. After being rumored a trade destination for Russell Wilson this offseason, Chicago signed Andy Dalton. They then traded up for Justin Fields and doubled down on their Dalton commitment. Still, it should not be ignored that this offensive line is terrible, so they are essentially sacrificing Dalton until they can figure it out. Nonetheless, the offense should be improved from last season, making the Bears a tough team.
New Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford will be comfortable in this matchup, having played the Bears twice a year with the Lions. The upgrade from Jared Goff to Stafford at quarterback could be drastic, and some think this alone makes them Super Bowl contenders. The Rams did lose important players from their defense, as well as their defensive coordinator, so their Week 1 performance will give a sense of how their season will shake out. If they do not miss a beat, the Rams should be NFC contenders.
