Going into Week 16, the Buffalo Bills have much riding on their feasible matchup against the Chicago Bears.

It looks like an easy win on the surface, but don’t take these Bears lightly. They gave the Philadelphia Eagles all they could handle a week ago. Don’t forget, too, that a team like Chicago has nothing more to lose at this stage.

The Bills, meanwhile, have tons to lose. Holding the AFC’s number one seed at the moment, the Bills need to win this game to stay on top of the conference.

As the two teams prepare for a road matchup in extremely cold temperatures, let’s look at some bold predictions for this one.

Bold Predictions for Buffalo Bills at Chicago Bears: Devin Singletary and James Cook combine for three touchdowns

First of all, the forecast on Saturday calls for 8 degrees and just over 20 MPH winds, consistently. They don’t call it the Windy City for nothing, after all.

Therefore, it’s safe to say that both teams will be trying to establish their run games early and often. The Bears may have Khalil Herbert back alongside David Montgomery, which makes their already no. 1 rushing attack even more lethal.

But, because of the threat of Josh Allen, the Bills will also be able to deploy both Devin Singletary and James Cook. The bold prediction, here, is that the two running backs end up finding pay dirt a total of three times.

The Bears’ rush defense has been brittle at times throughout the season, and Buffalo has usually had more success through the air. But, because of the weather especially, the Bills will find their identity on the ground.
