The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Viking face off on Sunday in Minnesota in a NFC North rivalry game. The Minnesota Vikings are having a season they would like to forget and they are coming off of a tie last week at Green Bay. While Minnesota has had their share of injuries it has been inconsistent play at QB which has been their undoing. The Vikings have come full circle with Christian Ponder back at QB and he has completed 64.5 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Adrian Peterson has rushed for 997 yards with 10 touchdowns and remains the premier back in football. Jerome Simpson and Greg Jennings each have 36 catches to lead the Vikings receivers.

Chicago Bears vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings face-off on Sunday for a week 2 NFL matchup of NFC North teams. The Bears are -6.5 point favorites over the Vikings with an over/under point total set at 42. The Chicago Bears got their season off on the right foot, beating the Bengals in week one, but they play their second home game in a row and look to keep a leg up in the NFC North. While it was only one game, Jay Cutler looked at ease under new Head Coach Mark Trestman as Cutler threw two touchdown passes and one interception, avoiding the sacks and fumbles which have plagued him. Matt Forte didn’t have any long runs against a tough Cincinnati defense, but he kept them honest, rushing for 49 tough yards and added four receptions. Brandon Marshall had a big day, with eight receptions for 104 yards and a Read More

Oakland Raiders vs. Chicago Bears

The Oakland Raiders and the Chicago Bears battle it out in a week three NFL preseason matchup that could be a preview of the two of the teams drafting in the top five in next year’s NFL Draft. The Bears are -3.5 point favorites over the Raiders with an over/under point total set at 38.5. The Oakland Raiders look to be an absolute mess once again this season with four QB’s on the roster that not one of them would have an easy time even making another team let alone starting. Last week we watched Matt Flynn run for his life when he wasn’t getting decked and we have been reminded all preseason long that Terrelle Pryor is a horrible alternative as a NFL QB. Darren McFadden is just about all the Raiders have these days but he can’t do it alone and what it has spelled for him in Read More

Chicago Bears vs. San Diego Chargers

The Chicago Bears and the San Diego Chargers meet on Thursday at Soldier Field for a week two preseason NL Matchup. The Bears are -4.5 point favorites over the Chargers with an over/under point total set at 37.5. The Chicago Bears didn’t open the Marc Trestman Era the way they had hoped, as they lost to the Panthers, but like 16 of the 32 NFL teams they will remind themselves that these games don’t count. While the Bears’ game against the Panthers was close in every way it was a turnover that ended up being the difference. Jay Cutler completed 6 of 8 passes with an interception while being sacked once while Josh McCown looked lost going 3 for 8 but Matt Blanchard went 15 fro 18 but like a typical Bears QB in recent years he ran for his life while being sacked five times. Matt Forte carried the Read More

Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers

The Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers meet on Sunday at Soldier Field in a pivotal NFC North NFL battle. The Packers are -2.5 point favorites over the Bears with an over/under point total set at 42. The Chicago Bears are reeling after losing four of their last five games and while a few weeks ago they were in first place in the division they are now in a position where they may miss the playoffs entirely. Jay Cutler was battered last week but he is probable for this one and for the season he has completed 59.8 percent of his passes with 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while being sacked 31 times. Matt Forte is averaging 4.3 yards per carry and he is the Bears’ second leading receiver with 36 catches.

Adrian Peterson has rushed for 1,446 yards with eight touchdowns while catching 36 passes.

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears

The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears kick off week two of NFL Football as the meet at Lambeau Field on Thursday Night for a NFC battle.  The Packers are -6 point favorites over the Bears with an over/under point total set at 50. The Green Bay Packers were the only NFC North team to lose their season opener as all four teams opened at home. QB Aaron Rogers looked very much like we are accustomed to seeing him completing 68.2 percent of his passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns but he also threw an interception and was sacked three times. Rodgers felt the heat because of a non-existent Packers running game as Cedric Benson gained just 18 yards on the ground on nine carries with all other rushing yards being gained by Rodgers scrambling, just 45 total years rushing. Randall Cobb has moved into a primary role Read More

Chicago Bears vs. Indianapolis Colts

The Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts kick off their 2012 NFL seasons as they meet on Sunday at Soldier Field.  The Bears are -9 point favorites over the Colts with an over/under point total set at 40.5. Expectations are high for the Chicago Bears this season as starters return from injury and new talent has been brought in. QB Jay Cutler was having a big year last season before his season was cut short by a thumb injury and the Bears’ offense was just never the same. At running back Matt Forte is under contract and ready to go and Michael Bush has been brought in as a quality backup. The Bears acquired Brandon Marshall at receiver and drafter Alshon Jeffery which allows them to move Devin Hester to the slot and gives them a formidable group of weapons. In order for it all to come together the offensive Read More
