Rams lead the Bears 13-7
Matthew Stafford opens things up with 67-yard bomb to Van Jefferson
Rams defense looks great for most of first half, but then run defense really starts to become an issue in the second quarter and a David Montgomery touchdown closes the lead to only six points at halftime.
The Los Angeles Rams made the splash move of the offseason by trading with the Detroit Lions for quarterback Matthew Stafford. The question since March has been ‘will it be worth it’ or ‘will it work’? Tonight, as the Chicago Bears come to SoFi Stadium to challenge the Rams on Sunday Night Football, we take one huge step to finding out.
Watch the Game: NBC 5:20pm PDT
New defensive coordinator Raheem Morris and veteran deep threat wide receiver DeSean Jackson are other notable additions to the team. Morris will lead the unit that was best in the league in points and yards allowed in 2020. Jackson will join one of the deepest receiver groups in the league led by Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. The Rams will also be lining up with Darrell Henderson at running back who will be the third back to start since the departure of Todd Gurley but he’ll have help with the recent trade acquisition Sony Michel.
The Bears also come into this game with a new look at quarterback having brought in veteran Andy Dalton from the Dallas Cowboys. But they did not stop there. With the 11th overall pick in the draft, the Bears added former Ohio State QB Justin Fields and all eyes will be watching if or when he takes the field.
The moves have been made and the preseason has been played. There are high expectations for how this season will end but the time to find out how it begins is now. Prime time on Sunday Night Football it’s the Rams and the Bears. Game on!
