Cardinals end scoring drought in first quarter against Bears

4 bright spots for Cardinals in 16-14 loss to Bears

The Chicago Bears are in sole possession of first place in the NFC North after Week 3's come-from-behind win over the Arizona Cardinals. A promising first drive for the Bears was for nothing after Mitchell Trubisky took a 15-yard loss on a third down sack, which backed up a Cody Parkey field goal attempt to 46 yards, which he missed. Third-string quarterback Mike Glennon, who played with the Bears last season, is also inactive.

But what's better than one first-quarter touchdown?

Led by veteran quarterback Sam Bradford, the Cardinals are a complete mess on offense, totaling just 365 yards of offense through those two contests. But Arizona gouged the Bears' defense to begin the game, scything downfield with a couple of explosive plays that this defense is generally good at not allowing. Bradford found running back David Johnson for a 21-yard touchdown to make it 14-0. Or, consider this: After allowing that 14-0 lead, the Bears' defense held the Cardinals to, in order, a punt, punt, punt, interception, interception, forced fumble and interception before the clock ran out with a sack by McManis (and Jackson had a pick-six negated by Mack being offsides). That made the game 14-10. Three Bradford turnovers - two interceptions and a fumble - led to 13 Chicago points.

Injured on the previous drive, Bradford was lifted with 4:31 to go in favor of rookie Josh Rosen, who couldn't crack the Bears' defense.

With just over four minutes to play in the fourth quarter and the Bears having just kicked a field goal to go up two after a Bradford fumble, the Cardinals decided now was the time to turn to Rosen.

Arizona got it back one more with 43 seconds left at their own 20 but the unit turned them back again.
