The Sunday Night Football game features the Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Rams. This game is a rematch of the game between these teams in October. In that game, the Rams won 24-10. Week 1 NFL betting lines show the Los Angeles Rams as big favorites. The Rams are -7, and the total is at 44.
The Rams have a new quarterback in Matthew Stafford. The former Detroit Lions signal-caller will match with Sean McVay in an offense many will have their eyes on in 2021. Stafford will team with the likes of Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, who are both receivers that are tough to defend. The Rams will look at both Darrell Henderson and Sony Michel lining up behind center with Stafford.
The news around the Chicago Bears camp is the quarterback. Andy Dalton is going to get the first crack at it. The 33-year-old spent the 2020 season with the Dallas Cowboys. Dalton has been in the league since being drafted in the second round in 2011 by Cincinnati.
Justin Fields is the other option for Matt Nagy and the Bears. The Ohio State star is poised to be a great quarterback in the league but will have to stay on the sidelines in Week 1. Chicago will be without Tarik Cohen, as he is out to start the season. David Montgomery remains as the lead running back, with Damien Williams as his backup. Allen Robinson remains the top receiving threat for Chicago, and it remains to be seen what the addition of Breshad Perriman will do for the offense.
The preseason saw the loss of Cam Akers for the Rams. The running back tore his Achilles in late July and is expected to miss the season.
