The Chicago Bears have a chance to start 4-0 for the first time since 2006 when they made the Super Bowl. The Chicago Bears have won four of their last five home games. Nick Foles completed 55.2% of his passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Foles and Mitchell Trubisky have combined for nine touchdowns and four interceptions this season. Allen Robinson II and Anthony Miller combined for 347 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Jimmy Graham had 10 receptions. The Chicago Bears’ rushing game is averaging 138 yards per game, and David Montgomery leads the way with 191 yards on 43 carries. Defensively, Chicago is allowing 20.7 points and 364 yards per game. Roquan Smith leads the Chicago Bears with 21 tackles, Akiem Hicks has 3.5 sacks and Kyle Fuller has an interception.
The Colts are 0-3-1 CEP in their last 4 road games, 4-1 CEP in their last 5 games in October and 1-3-1 CEP in their last 5 games overall. The Bears are 2-5 CÉP in their last 7 home games, 1-6 CÉP in their last 7 games in October and 4-11 CÉP in their last 15 games overall. The under is 15-6 in the Bears’ last 21 games. The favorite is 4-1 CÉP in their last 5 meetings.
It’s going to be an interesting game, as they are two of the best defenses in the league in three games, with the Colts leading the way in yards allowed per game. The Colts are probably the best team overall, but I’m not sure I trust Rivers on the road against an aggressive defense like the Bears that puts pressure on the quarterback and can force turnovers. The Bears also announced that Foles is going to be the starting quarterback this week, which gives me a lot more confidence in this Chicago offense. It feels like a game where Rivers is going to make some mistakes and it could cost the Colts the game late.
Give me the bears and the points.
