Josh Rosen Debuts, But Cardinals Lose To Bears

The Arizona Cardinals (0-2) will meet the Chicago Bears (1-1) Sunday afternoon at 4:25 p.m. EST. But the path to the Bears' second win of the season - which put them in first place in the NFC North for the first time since 2014 - was hard. However, from there Bradford struggled as he has most of this early season.

In order to leave the desert over.500, the Bears will need to excel in these three areas of the game.

Sam Bradford's 35-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Ricky Seals-Jones put the Cardinals ahead 7-0.

Additionally, the Cardinals are averaging a league-worst 228 total passing yards in two weeks. Tenth overall pick Josh Rosen almost staged a game-winning drive after entering for Bradford after Parkey's field goal, though.

After Bradford's fumble at the Chicago 16, the Bears drove down to kick the go-ahead field goal, leading to Rosen's dramatic entrance. The rookie came in and made a few good throws, but the drive ended with a fourth down attempt getting picked off on the right sideline. The Cardinals will be tasked with containing the Bears' pass rush with reserve tackle John Wetzel in place of Smith. The Raiders' defense as a whole has two sacks, one forced fumble, no fumble recoveries, one interception and no defensive touchdowns. But until they develop into that, you'll see plenty more games like Sunday.
