With the Arizona Cardinals Week 13 matchup being against the Chicago Bears, we might finally see Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins return to the field. This franchise looks to maintain their top seed in the NFC with a win on Sunday. We take a look at this Cardinals/Bears game with some of our Cardinals Week 13 predictions in mind.

Arizona’s defense has been phenomenal this year. So much so, they’ve taken most of the league by surprise. Chicago has had a rocky season and it’s hard to believe they can win this game. Regardless, the Cardinals are in line to dominate the Bears on Sunday.

For more insight on the Cardinals’ Week 13 matchup against the Bears, listen below:

Although Arizona has been without a couple of their stars, the team has been able to maintain dominance on the NFL. Coming off their bye week, this offense is raring to get back to business. Look for James Conner to continue his impressive play, while DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray bounce back in a big way. With that said, here are four bold Cardinals Week 13 predictions for their game against the Bears.

Cardinals Week 13 Predictions

4. Cardinals defense locks down the Bears completely

Chicago’s best chances of winning this game lie in the playing status of Justin Fields. They’ll need his versatility to make up for the lack of firepower on the offensive end. Even then, it still might not be enough to overcome the Cardinals’ stellar defense.

If Andy Dalton is under center, the Cardinals should be able to control this game from the get-go. Look for the pass rush to bother the Bears’ quarterback while the secondary clamps down on the receivers. This game could get out of hand rather quickly.

3. James Conner continues his touchdown streak

James Conner has been incredible this season as he’s found the end zone more than anybody else. With Chase Edmonds still on IR, we should see Conner continue to make big plays for the Cardinals. If Conner gets going, the Bears will have no chance to win this matchup.

2. DeAndre Hopkins bounces back for 100+ yards and 2 touchdown performance

It’s been a while since we’ve seen DeAndre Hopkins take the field, but it sounds like he’s on his way back to the lineup. If that’s the case, the Cardinals will gladly use Hopkins to help defeat the Bears. He’s one of the best receivers in the league and will be the difference-maker for them throughout the playoffs.

Although we might see Hopkins return, there is a chance the coaching staff gives him a limited role against Chicago. They might not need him to defeat the Bears and it’s more important for Hopkins to be healthy for the postseason. Either way, the Cardinals star receiver will make an impact on Sunday and help his team win.

1. Kyler Murray destroys Chicago with 300+ passing yards and 4 total touchdowns

Similar to Hopkins, it’s been a minute since we’ve seen Kyler Murray under center. The Cardinals are in a great spot to clinch first place in the NFC, especially now with Murray coming back to the lineup soon. Chicago’s defense has been mediocre at best this year, so it’ll be difficult for them to do much on Sunday. For that reason, we could see Kyler Murray destroy the Bears and push Arizona even closer to clinching a playoff birth.
