The Chicago Bears' next task is to take on the Arizona Cardinals down in the desert. But the path to the Bears' second win of the season - which put them in first place in the NFC North for the first time since 2014 - was hard.

In order to grab their first victory of the season, the Cardinals must show great improvement in many areas. 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.

Yes, the Cardinals still have Larry Fitzgerald and, yes, David Johnson is one of the most talented running backs in the National Football League, but the other nine starters on offense are simply no match for the Bears' overwhelming defense and will struggle to score more than 10 points on Sunday.

Additionally, the Cardinals are averaging a league-worst 228 total passing yards in two weeks. But the offense struggled after the first quarter.

Josh Rosen made his debut Sunday for the Cardinals, although it didn't come until late, and it wasn't enough to save the game.

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. The Raiders' defense as a whole has two sacks, one forced fumble, no fumble recoveries, one interception and no defensive touchdowns. And while the defense should do its part, the offense (led by QB Mitch Trubisky) has to prove capable of taking some pressure off of Mack and company. And that means...if you'll excuse the callback: The Bears are who we thought they were.
