Over the weekend, Chicago sports fans had their eyes on the Chicago Bears who were looking to overcome their latest loss to the Green Bay Packers. During this weekend battle the Bears were taking on fellow midwest rivals, the St. Louis Rams. The Bears, looking to overcome their latest loss, filled the seats at Soldier Field as they faced off against the Rams. During the matchup, which delivered the Bears a 23-6 win over the Rams, it was the Bears Defense who were at the center of the win as quarterback Jay Cutler struggled with the team’s offense. However, while Chicago Bears fans were elated to see the Bears back on top, other Chicago sports fans had much less to cheer about.
As the Bears found success at home, the Cubs had their own issues with their St. Louis rivals as they faced off against the St. Louis Cardinals at home. After a dramatic series against the Cardinals, the Cubs ended up facing their sixth loss to the Cardinals in a seven game series, delivering a hardening loss in the final game, which the Cubs lost 3-6. The home loss was hard for the Cubs to handle, as they prepare for several upcoming road games. However, they weren’t the only Chicago baseball team struggling over the weekend.
Despite their recent success, the Sox dropped their 5th straight game over the weekend, getting swept by the L.A. Angels over the weekend. After the road loss, the Sox will be heading home for a key seven game home stand.
