The St. Louis Rams won their first game of the season last week, but they are looking for more as they visit Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears, this Sunday at 1 PM ET.
“It’s a great feeling,” defensive end Chris Long said. “But that’s why we put in all the hard work, to see the product of Sunday. It just makes us more hungry to come out and prepare for next week.”
Sam Bradford is having a good start of a season throwing 508 yards and four touchdowns and just one interception, but he won’t have Steven Jackson for the match as he sufferers from a groin injury.
“His groin was tight, we didn’t want to risk further injury. He could’ve come back in the game,” Fisher said. “He understands. This is a long season. If he goes back in the game at that point, he might have had a (more serious) issue”.
For the Bears, the idea is to protect Jay Cutler who suffered seven sacks against the Packers; however the Rams style of playing is not what you think as they only have 2 sacks in two games.
“When he’s getting hit that many times, that’s on the O-line, so we have to do a better job protecting Jay and giving him more time,” right tackle Gabe Carimi said.
“It happened. It’s an emotional game,” Cutler said. “I put a lot into playing quarterback, and I take it seriously. It’s just one of the things that happened during the game. Since then, we’ve talked about it, and it’s really behind us.”
The NFL odds have the Bears as seven point favorites.
