Why this game is intriguing: The euphoria that filled Chicago early in the season is long gone. That went out the door with three losses in a row -- a stumble that is eerily reminiscent of last year (except Jay Cutler is playing this time). The Bears' remaining schedule does feature a pair of highly winnable games, though, starting with this trip to Arizona. But the Cardinals might be playing for head coach Ken Whisenhunt's job, too. And they did just blow out the Lions at home last week. What should be an easy win to get the Bears back on track might not be so simple against a defense that still has some life left. Prepare for ugliness on both sides of the ball.
