Chicago Bears vs. Arizona Cardinals: Game Previews & Predictions

Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistDecember 17, 2012

Before Week 15, the Arizona Cardinals looked like exactly what the doctor ordered for a struggling team. Then they pounded the Detroit Lions.

The Chicago Bears will want to be careful they don't fall into the same trap.

Still, the secondary will look to take advantage of the struggling Ryan Lindley while the front seven go through an underwhelming offensive line. Of course, this is what the Lions expected to do, and that didn't turn out so good.

Arizona has to lock down Brandon Marshall, but can they? Does Chicago have another legitimate option?

The Bears need this win in a bad way, as they are on the precipice of playoff elimination. One could also make the argument that jobs are on the line, given this is the second consecutive major fade at the end of the season.

Can they pull it together and still make the playoffs?
