Cincinnati Bengals vs Chicago Bears takes place on Sunday as the 2013 NFL season gets underway, and this match up sees the Marc Trestman era begin in earnest for the Bears at Soldier Field. The game will start at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Bears have come to be known as one of the most fierce defensive units in the NFL, however, they have now let go of defensive-minded head coach Lovie Smith, how led them for an amazing nine years.
That means the Bears' offense has been revamped by Trestman, who has been brought on board to try and optimize the Bears' use of quarterback Jay Cutler.
However, they will have their work cut out today against a potentially solid team in the Bengals. Many analysts believe the Bengals will overtake the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fiercely competitive AFC North this season – whether they will or not remains to be seen. A lot will depend on how they get off to this new season, and they will be desperate to get things off to a winning start today.
The Bengals come into this game boasting one of the strongest defensive units in the NFL, and this should provide a stiff challenge for Cutler and the Bears' offensive unit. At the end of today many should be able to see just how much more work Cutler and Co have until they have unleashed their full potential on the NFL.
