The Arizona Cardinals will play host the Chicago Bears in what will be an pivotal preseason game for both teams looking to bounce back on track after losing the 2016 NFL seasons. The Chicago Bears stumbled to a 3-13 losing record in the second year of the team general manager Ryan Pace rebuilding plan, but the Arizona Cardinals were a disappointing 7-8-1 streak, a season after winning the NFC West with a 13-3 winning record.
It’s a late exhibition matchup and features two NFL franchises with a lot of question marks left to on their heads. The Bears are currently standing at 0-1 this preseason, while the Cardinals are on 1-1. Both organization will play their starters longer than the preseason opener last week, but this is still the dress rehearsal, so we should expect to see them both conclude the contest with the backups.
The Cardinals want to determine should they can bounce back on winning campaign from their first losing season under helm of head coach Bruce Arians. This Saturday night game will be the chance for someone else to move up and prove that they can replace the speedy Brown should things don’t change with him.
