The NFC North leading Chicago Bears are heading down to south Florida for a match-up with the first place Miami Dolphins. This is a huge game for both teams. The Bears want to keep their grasp atop their division in front of the three talented teams behind them, and the Dolphins want to prove that their current two game losing streak is a fluke.
An impressive win by Chicago on the road will send a message to the rest of the NFL that they are a team to be taken seriously. Their defense has been playing good all year long, but the offense has to build off the success they had two weeks ago against the Buccaneers. I’m not expecting another six touchdown performance from Mitchell Trubisky, but he has to play well. A bad game would erase all the good vibes he’s picked up after that game, and cause the doubts to creep back in amongst fans and media.
