The Buffalo Bills should be obvious favorites here, and it wouldn't be surprising to see a comfortable victory. However, the Chicago Bears have been competitive despite their record. In fact, 8 of the Bear's 11 losses this season have been decided by single digit points. The Bears find ways to hang around, and a lot of it has to do with Fields at quarterback and the best rushing attack in the league. Short week on the road and nasty wind in Chicago, this has the makings of a competitive game. Give me the Bears and the points.
