Sunday Night Football open thread: Bears at Rams

Two of the best teams in 2018 are looking to change their fortunes in 2019.

At 13-3 and 12-4, the Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears respectively were both titans of the NFL last season. However, their 2019 campaigns, so far, have gone much differently, and they will look to gather some ground tonight on Sunday Night Football.

The Los Angeles Rams are sitting at third in the NFC West, and they have taken a backseat to the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, both of whom have eight wins a piece. Coming off a Super Bowl loss, the Rams might have to compete for a Wild Card spot if they want to get back to the big dance. They are coming into tonight’s game in disappointing fashion. They secured two victories over the lowly Falcons and Bengals, but last week was an offensive let down, scoring only 12 points against a stout Steelers defense. Jared Goff was off all night, and their only touchdown came on a fumble recovery early in the game.

The Chicago Bears are entering tonight’s game with a win versus Detroit last week, but it has not been pretty for them them thus far. Prior to last week’s win, the Bears dropped four-straight games. While their defense has remained an excellent unit, the offense has struggled immensely. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has not proved his doubters wrong, and coupled with an injury to David Montgomery, the Bears might be lacking an offensive punch tonight.

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:
