Things aren’t looking good for Bears RB Matt Forte right now.
He’s carried the ball four times for 11 yards in the first half against the Bengals, who already lead Chicago 21-0. The Bears will no doubt look to throw the ball (and throw it a lot) in a comeback attempt. That means 30-plus passes for QB Jay Cutler and another week with fewer than 20 carries for Forte is very possible.
If you started Bengals QB Carson Palmer in this contest, you’ve got to be smiling right now.
Palmer has already thrown for three touchdowns despite a tough matchup on paper.
