The Rams are 4-2 heading into a tilt against the 5-1 Bears on Monday Night Football. Chicago seems to have found their 2018 form when they rode their elite defense to a playoff appearance before falling in the wildcard round to the Eagles due to a “double doink.”
But in all honesty, the only notable win on their schedule up to this point has been over the Bucs. For the most part, the Bears have capitalized on games against the Giants, Lions and Falcons, all of which are near the bottom of the league.
It’s easy to think that Chicago is riding a hot streak which seemingly has to come to an end sooner rather than later, so I’m feeling pretty good ahead of tonight’s game.
I think the Rams offensive line comes through in an unexpected way and the run game ends up being a big help in limiting the Bears offense from seeing the field a ton. I predict Darrell Henderson to score at least once and I see Jared Goff with a pair of touchdown passes with around 240-ish yards passing.
When it’s all said and done, I predict a 27-20 victory as the defensive unit, led by Aaron Donald, records at least a pair of takeaways on the night.
Now, give me all of your predictions in the comments below.
