The Bears vs Rams game is scheduled to begin at 8:15 p.m. ET / 5:15 p.m. PT today (Monday, Oct. 26) on ESPN.

It's time for the Bears vs Rams live stream to deliver a matchup where an immovable object meets ... another immovable object. Tonight, we've got two of the best defenses in the NFL clashing in a major edition of Monday Night Football, so don't expect to see a high score in this NFL live stream

Each team has shown its proficiency in holding back opponents from scoring. In very similar form, these two teams last met in 2019, when the Rams pulled off a 17-7 victory. Playing on their home turf this week, the Rams enjoy the blessing of the oddsmakers, who favor them 6 points over the Bears.

Why are the critics bullish on the Rams? This has been a very good season for the team's offense. Jared Goff has been moving the ball like hell, passing for 1,570 yards and 10 touchdowns so far (and rushing another two TDs). That's nearly double Nick Foles's numbers.

Goff is also blessed with a deep bank of capable receivers, including wide receivers Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. And Goff is well protected by his offensive line. He's been sacked just seven times — the second-lowest number in the league. All that, plus solid rushing led by Darrell Henderson Jr., gives the Rams a slight edge in scoring: about 25 points per game vs. 21 for the Bears.

The Bears for their part have recently shown the ability to take on top-tier opponents, with back-to-back wins over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Carolina Panthers (first and third in the NFC South). 

With neither team expected to score a lot, this match will truly be a test of who has the more ironclad defense. And whoever prevails, it could well be an ugly win.
