The Chicago Bears (3-7) and Atlanta Falcons (4-6) will square off today in a game between two evenly-matched teams, and it’s a game that should provide some fun for both fanbases. Neither defense is playing particularly well, so we should have a high-scoring affair. Plus this will be a homecoming for Chicago’s Justin Fields, who played his high school ball at Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Georgia (about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta), which adds another layer of intrigue to the game.
Our podcast channel this week featured an interview we did with Fields’ high school head coach, Matt Dickmann, so check out Making Monsters for an in-depth look at the QB1.
Here’s everything you need to know about this week 11 matchup.
