Through 2 Quarters
The Los Angeles Rams can’t call it a day yet, but they are winning as expected. They have emerged as the frontrunner at halftime and are ahead of the Chicago Bears 10-3.
Los Angeles has been relying on QB Jared Goff, who has passed for one TD and 140 yards on 22 attempts, and WR Josh Reynolds, who was on the other end of that TD and has tacked on 31 yards receiving. Goff has been efficient, with a passer rating of 132.10.
This is tied with the least points Chicago has had yet this year going into the third quarter.

What to Know
The Chicago Bears are staying on the road Monday to face off against the Los Angeles Rams at 8:15 p.m. ET Oct. 26 at SoFi Stadium. Both teams have allowed few points on average (Chicago 19.33, Los Angeles 19), so any points scored will be well earned.
The Bears beat the Carolina Panthers 23-16 last week. No one had a standout game offensively for Chicago, but QB Nick Foles led the way with two touchdowns.
Special teams collected 11 points for Chicago. K Cairo Santos delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.

Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bears come into the matchup boasting the fewest touchdowns allowed in the league at nine.
