The St. Louis Rams continue their tour of the NFC North, with their last road game against an opponent from that division, a battle against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Oh sure, it would've been nice to have the Vikings on the schedule first, but this Rams teams is one capable of surprising almost any opponent this year; something that hasn't been true in years.
Chicago is a tough team to predict. With things wired tight, they can run with anybody, especially on the strength of their defense. Unfortunately, the Bears seem to be perpetually teetering on a total meltdown these days. They lost an ugly one last Thursday, with quarterback Jay Cutler getting sacked seven times and throwing four interceptions in a loss to the Packers; a team that looked like they were getting the better early, early in the game.
With a more potent Rams team, this should be a fun one.
