Chicago Bears Week 7 Preview

Chicago Bears (3-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-1)

Last week’s Chicago Bears loss to Green Bay isn’t worth writing about so it’s on to Tampa Bay. As Bill Belichick would say, “It’s on to Cincinnati. We’re on to Cincinnati. Cincinnati. Cincinnati.” For Head Coach Matt Nagy, it should be “We’re on to Tampa. Tampa. Tampa. Tampa. No more questions. Tampa”

Troy Aikman’s AER

  • Chicago Bears (3-3) : 23rd offense, 8th defense
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-1) : 5th offense, 15th defense

Football Outsiders

  • Chicago : 20th overall, 26th offense, 7th defense, 7th special teams
  • Tampa Bay : 4th overall, 1st offense, 16th defense, 20th special teams

Team Rankings

  • Chicago : 24th overall predictive ranking, 25th overall road rating (1-2 on the road)
  • Tampa Bay : 3rd overall predictive ranking, 1st overall home rating (3-0 at home)

Sports Betting Dime’s prediction has Tampa winning 27.7-14.4, covering the 12.5 point spread.
