The 2021 NFL season gets underway on Thursday night, and over the following four days America will be able to watch football pretty much anytime they turn on the TV. The Chicago Bears get their season started when they hed out to LA to take on the Rams in a primetime matchup.
Controversy is already a major issue in Chicago, with head coach Matt Nagy opting to start Andy Dalton at quarterback over rookie first-rounder Justin Fields. The Ohio State product has looked really good this preseason too, so it’s a bit confusing as to why Dalton will get the reins for the opener. Still, no matter who takes the first snaps, the Bears won’t have an easy day out there. The Rams already had an incredible offense with weapons galore, but they made a huge upgrade in the offseason, getting Matthew Stafford from the Lions to lead their attack.
