Current Records: Chicago 4-1; Carolina 3-2
What to Know
After a two-game homestand, the Chicago Bears will be on the road. They will square off against the Carolina Panthers at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. Chicago has a defense that allows only 20 points per game, so Carolina's offense will have their work cut out for them.
The Bears dodged a bullet last week, finishing off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-19. No one had a standout game offensively for Chicago, but they got scores from RB David Montgomery and TE Jimmy Graham. QB Nick Foles ended up with a passer rating of 123.10.
Meanwhile, Carolina beat the Atlanta Falcons 23-16 last week. Among those leading the charge for Carolina was RB Mike Davis, who snatched one receiving TD.
Special teams collected 11 points for the Panthers. K Joey Slye delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Their wins bumped the Bears to 4-1 and Carolina to 3-2. One last thing to keep an eye on: six of Chicago's points in their last matchup came from rushes on the left side of the field. That's bad news for Carolina, who had a hard time containing the rush on the left side of the field against Atlanta.
