NFL Week 16 Free Pick: Take the Under. According to latest NFL trends, the Cardinals have hit the under in 8 of their last 11 games following a win and the Bears have hit the under in 5 of their last 6 games following a loss. This game should see both defenses dominate. Arizona posted 38 points last week, but did it with under 200 yards of offense thanks to a slew of turnovers. Don’t look for that to happen again this week. Arizona will struggle to move the ball, even on a banged-up Bears’ defense. Chicago has had trouble on offense as well, especially protecting Jay Cutler. The Cardinals aren’t a bad defense to begin with, and they have played well at home and are facing an average offense. Look for the points to be few and far between.
