Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, listed as questionable for Sunday due to his lingering ankle injury, is expected to start vs. the Bears, per source.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
Jakeem Grant Sr.
The Arizona Cardinals will take the field in Chicago to take on the Bears. They are heavy favorites in the game and are expected to have quarterback Kyler Murray and receiver DeAndre Hopkins back.
In a simulation of the game on Madden NFL 22, the Cardinals roll to a victory in the rain. They picked up a fairly easy 24-10 victory, never trailing in the game.
They scored first on a 34-yard touchdown pass from Murray to running back James Conner, the first Murray’s three touchdown passes and the first of two touchdown catches for Conner
Christian Kirk hasn't touched it so far. Just saying….
James Conner is leading the Cardinals in receiving yards with 36.
Drive stalls out of halftime for the Cardinals, but Matt Prater boots the 33-yard field goal to extend the lead to 24-7.
Reminder: when the #Bears traded up for Mitch Trubisky in 2017, they traded down in the second round to recoup draft capital. The #Cardinals traded with the #Bears and drafted star Budda Baker. The #Bears took Adam Shaheen.
This guy who replaced Colt McCoy is short but he seems like a pretty good player. Nice to have a capable backup
The speed of Isaiah Simmons, You're not beating him to the edge.
Jalen Thompson down and hurting after that tackle of Montgomery.
And Dalton gives it right back by hitting cornerback Byron Murphy smack dab in the middle of the "7" on his jersey.
That sack credited to Jordan Hicks would give Hicks a career-high four this season.
Andy Lee with an excellent punt, 58 yards, downed at the CHI 2. Defense needs a 3-n-out and make this field-position flip work.
After a scoring review, they have officially split the sack between Murphy and Chandler Jones. That gives Jones 8.5 this season.
D.J. Humphries was very slow to get up after that play and he has to come out for a snap.
Dennis Gardeck near-punt block. Hits the punter. They call it roughing the kicker. Bears keep the ball. Cardinals are really hurting themselves today.
Kliff Kingsbury on today's win: "We knew it would be grimy, wet, windy, cold, but I thought our defense played tremendous." He said the offense was "disjointed."
Per @PaulCalvisi, Kingsbury "finally got the bleeding to stop" after colliding with Leki Fotu early in the second half; Kingsbury suffered a bloody lip #AZvsCHI
Bears slice lead to 24-14 on a short TD pass to Graham as they pick Zaven Collins out of the play. 2:49 left in the third quarter.
What would've been a first and goal for the Bears turned into a Cole Kmet-drop-Cardinals-interception-long-return. Arizona ball at the Chicago 15. …not ideal.
Andy Dalton has two tackles today, tied for the sixth most on the Bears.

Bears LB Roquan Smith is active. Teven Jenkins is active for the first time in his NFL career. WR Allen Robinson is inactive.
Not that is particularly matters but sure looks like HC Matt Nagy is calling offensive plays.
#Bears LB Roquan Smith is active for today's game.
The Bears are down to relying on the following on defense : Bruce Irvin Margus Hunt Xavier Crawford Cassius Marsh Christian Jones Kindle Vildor
Teven Jenkins did get some reps at left tackle during Bears warmups.
That was the first target of Rodney Adams' career. It didn't go well.
Jimmy Graham with a 1-yard TD reception. #Cardinals lead 24-14, 2:49 remaining 3rd qtr.
#Bears NT Eddie Goldman just jogged to the tunnel heading to the locker room.
In the short term, the Bears lost in ugly fashion against a superior team on Sunday. But in the long term, it doesn't mean that much. The season's main storyline — the development of Justin Fields — takes over again soon. My column: theathletic.com/2999518/2021/1…

#Bears OT Larry Borom's favorite fruit is pineapple, we learn on the scoreboard. One of the multiple-choice options was kiwi. You knew that wasn't it. No one in the history of mankind has ever declared kiwi to be their favorite fruit.
Kindle Vildor is in the game for the Bears at corner this drive.
