Through two quarters of play, the Arizona Cardinals trail the Chicago Bears by a score of 21-6.

The Bears put up the first offensive touchdown of the game early in the second quarter on a four yard run by Matt Forte. That score was set up by a 30 yard reception from wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

The Cardinals were able to cut the deficit to a one-possession game thanks to a 35 yard field goal by Jay Feely that resulted from a Chicago fumble on a punt return.

But Chicago struck back again on a two minute drill to end the half, as quarterback Jay Cutler hit Brandon Marshall for an 11 yard touchdown to make it 21-6.

Cutler finished the half 6-of-16 for 106 yards and a touchdown. Arizona quarterback Ryan Lindley was 17-of-28 for 141 yards. Forte has 85 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, while the Cardinals have just 17 rushing yards.

The Cardinals have actually dominated the time of possession so far, accounting for 20 minutes compared to 10 for the Bears.
