Josh McCown will look to guide the Bears to their third win with him starting at quarterback. In his first start of the season he threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears 27-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers. His second start came in week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens a game the Bears would win 23-20 in overtime. McCown finished the game with 216 yards, one touchdown and a big pass in overtime to help set up the game winning field goal.

The Rams are coming off their biggest win of the season and first since losing starting quarterback Sam Bradford. The Rams defense forced four Andrew Luck turnovers and five in total in the blowout win during week 10. The Rams will look to build on that momentum coming out of the bye against a very good Bears team. This will be another test for their defense as they are going up against a group of receivers that all stand at least 6’4” or taller.

In his career McCown is 1-2 against the Rams with 515 yards passing and two touchdown passes. This will be Kelly Clemens first start against the Chicago Bears since being drafted in 2006. This game will ultimately come down to which team’s playmaker steps up the most. The Bears have a trio of guys including Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. The Rams will look to get the speedy Tavon Austin involved along with Zac Stacey who has played well since taking over the starting running back job.

This game may not feature two elite quarterbacks but it has enough play makers on both sides of the ball to make it exciting.
