Chicago Bears

The final team is the Chicago Bears, who are set to play the New England Patriots on Monday night. These are two teams that are heading in very different directions as the Bears are 2-4 and have lost three straight games.

The hope this season was that new head coach Matt Eberleus and his staff could unlock the potential of Justin Fields. However, that hasn’t been the case and this offense ranks near the bottom in almost every statistical category.

Meanwhile, the Patriots have won two in a row behind rookie Bailey Zapee and have definitive wins over the Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns. They had to make the switch at quarterback with Mac Jones dealing with an ankle injury but Jones has practiced in a limited capacity this week and is questionable.

It would certainly be considered an upset for the Chicago Bears to beat the New England Patriots but a Bears’ win here would be great for the Buffalo Bills.
