It’s always fun to watch two of the NFL’s longest-running franchises going head-to-head, as the Arizona Cardinals and the Chicago Bears are the only organizations to have been there since the very beginning. They were known then as the Chicago Cardinals and the Decatur Staleys, respectively, and now, over 100 years later, the tradition continues as the Cards and Bears meet once again.
This will be the 95th meeting between the two franchises who first faced one another on November 28th, 1920 in a game that resulted in a win for the Redbirds. So if you’re planning on tuning in to see if the Cardinals can score the W in what will be the latest meeting between the franchises, keep reading, because this article will tell you all you need to know for the upcoming matchup.

What to Watch
This is a game featuring two former first-round picks at quarterback who are looking to build faith in their respective organizations that they can be the undisputed signal-callers moving forward. If quarterback Justin Fields shows he can be the guy for the Bears, then the projected first pick in the 2024 draft may have just become a lot more interesting. If Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray puts on a solid performance, then it could foreshadow what could be a solid final two weeks.
