Chicago Bears-Tampa Bay Buccaneers predictions

Ryan Fitzpatrick benched for Jameis Winston, who promptly throws an interception

First of all, I wrote this before I knew Edholm was going with the same score, so either great minds think alike, or we're both boobs. Despite his three INTs on Monday night, he became the first QB in National Football League history to start the season with three straight games of 400-plus passing yards.

CHICAGO - Somewhere Al Davis is rolling over in his jumpsuit.The late Raiders owner is known for his defensive doctrine: the other team's quarterback must go down and he must go down hard.But when it comes to hitting the passer, the National Football League h. This could be the week where Trubisky has to bail out Khalil Mack and the defense.

Following a tough loss to the Packers in Green Bay in the season opener, the Bears have beaten the Seahawks and Cardinals the last two weeks to move to 2-1 and sit atop the NFC North.

Having Jameis Winston over his shoulder on the sideline for the first time this week also can't be a big help, and I just don't see this Bears defense losing to Fitzpatrick or Winston. Tampa is 2-1 on the season, 2-1 against the spread and the Bucs have hit the over in all three games.

The Bears' defense, unlike in years past, has shown a knack for pilfering passes and then doing something productive with the ball. This year, five different players already have one interception, and two of the picks have been returned for touchdowns.

Four plays later, the Bears were back in the end zone to make it 45-3. But the Bears have much better talent and depth in the backfield. Now they will travel to Chicago to play the Bears.

After last week it looked like the Ryan Fitzpatrick magic was over. Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson each have over 300 receiving yards so far and three touchdowns each. Tampa's defense hasn't been that good either.

With the Bucs trailing 38-3 at the half, it was no surprise coach Dirk Koetter benched Fitzpatrick for Jameis Winston, who is fresh off his three-game suspension. I'm also comfortable in picking the Bears by a touchdown.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be coming off their first loss this past Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The running game is the worst in the National Football League, and they will have to find a way to get the running game together. Tampa Bay allowed 128 points in 2016.12Teams, since the 1970 AFL-NFL.

That means good games for Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen while Mitch Trubisky's leash is let out some but not a ton. Their run defense is giving up just 65.3 yards per game.
