Bears allow record 48 points in home loss to Cardinals

SHARE Bears allow record 48 points in home loss to Cardinals

The Bears defense wasn’t slated to be the team’s strong suit this year, but many were hoping it would make drastic improvements from last year’s performance.

After Sunday’s blowout loss to the Cardinals, and the Bears secondary making Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald look like Pro Bowl versions of themselves, it doesn’t seem like the Bears have it together on defense — or special teams — just yet in 2015.

Cardinals QB Palmer threw for 4 touchdowns and 185 passing yards. He also finished the contest with 115.4 passer rating. Somehow, he even got the ball to land in Fitzgerald’s hands on well-executed flea-flicker.

Fitzgerald was also a big-time contributor to the Cardinals success. He hauled in eight catches for 118 yards and three receiving scores. He looked like he was playing in his glory days beside Anquan Boldin.

The Cardinals’ all-Johnson backfield of Chris and David Johnson also proved effective. Chris managed 72 yards on the grounds, while David ran for a score and returned a kickoff for 108-yards.
