New England Patriots vs Chicago Bears Predictions
This has nothing to do with the mess the Bears left on the field at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami last Sunday. They are going to play their best game of the year to arrive at this outcome.
I fear the bottom line here is that Bill Belichick and his Patriots were born to play in these kind of games and they know how to win them better than anybody in the NFL.
They are who the Bears aspire to be, and though the Chicago are off to a better start under Matt Nagy than most anyone expected, have we seen anything to suggest that Nagy is ready to out-coach Belichick, Trubisky has a chance of outplaying Tom Brady or that the Bears are ready to win a game like this?
The unfortunate answers are no, no and no, and this is the exact same thing I would have written had I done it prior to the Dolphins game.
Yes, the Bears do have a better defense than the Patriots, and they can be explosive at times on offense, but the Bears’ offense isn’t close to New England’s yet and the defense doesn’t get to play the Pats’ ‘D,’ it has to beat Brady.
I’d love to see it, but really, how likely is that to happen?
If the Bears allowed the Dolphins, behind QB Brock Osweiler, to produce 541 yards and 31 points, one shudders to think what Tom Brady and the Patriots will do. The Bears believe what happened defensively in South Florida was an aberration, and they’re probably correct. But Brady and Co. have been functioning quite efficiently lately, and if the Bears are missing either OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) or CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring), their degree of difficulty goes up exponentially.
Offensively, the Bears haven’t been a model of consistency, but in the past two games they’ve shown the ability to score points in bunches, and the Pats have some holes in their defense. They’re last in the NFL in sack percentage but eighth in interception percentage. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Bears suffer a hangover following their overtime loss against Miami because it was a game they had multiple opportunities to win.
But coach Matt Nagy managed to rally the troops after a disheartening loss to the Packers in the season opener, and he should be able to do it again. That being said, it’s going to be difficult for the Bears’ still-young offense led by QB Mitch Trubisky to match points with Brady.
One of the tougher realities of the Bears’ Miami meltdown is that the heat on them now intensifies. There’s no soft landing awaiting Chicago with the visiting Patriots averaging more than 40 points during their current three-game winning streak.
