New England Patriots at Chicago Bears Overview
New England Patriots
The Patriots come in off a high-profile and high-scoring victory on Sunday Night Football when they handed the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs their first loss of the season is a 43-40 shootout. The Patriots have won three in a row after getting off to a cold 1-2 start.
The Bears come into this contest on the heels of a gut-wrenching overtime loss at the Miami Dolphins, last Sunday when they fell 31-28. Chicago held the lead in the fourth quarter but the Fins found a way back. The loss ended a three-game Chicago winning streak in the build-up to their meeting with New England's fellow divisional rival.
Reasons to Back Chicago
The Bears enter in a spot that makes them prime for the plucking. Coming in off an overtime loss, the Bears can once again slip under the radar as their stock has since fallen. However, Chicago is known for a renowned home field advantage and they will undoubtedly hone the fact that they could be undefeated if they held leads against Miami and Green Bay as motivation. One more thing, Tom Brady is up against a defensive force in Khalil Mack, and if he gets loose, Brady may have a lot of trouble getting operations going.
Reasons to Avoid New England
The Patriots are going to get a lot of love this week from both Joe Public and touts alike after they took down arguably the best team in the AFC. Weeks ago, analysts suggested that perhaps the Patriots reign of supremacy had come and gone. Now, the Patriots are being touted as the team to beat. These perceptions often influence public action, and when you see the Patriots offered at such a low-price here, it is very tempting to dive in. However, New England has yet to win on the road this season.
