This Weekend – New England Patriots Clash With Chicago Bears

December 9, 2010

This weekend the Chicago Bears will battle against the New England Patriots. While the Bears have a dominating defense the Patriots have a high powered offense, both feature differing approaches in this matchup. The Bears are 9-3 whereas the Patriots are 10-2 on the season.

At 43.5, the total for the game is currently sitting while in this game the Patriots will be the 3 point favorites.

Even though they also have an absorbent defense, the Patriots have a solid offense that knows how to score points. In comparison to their offence, the Patriots have actually allowed more yards on defense. Their efficiency in scoring opportunities is always the key for the Patriots. They manage to get the ball in the end zone, while many teams average more yards than they do on offense.

To keep the Patriots from scoring position, where they are so dominant, the Bears will need to ensure to play at a high intensity.

Even though this Bears team is better than in years past, they have lost 5 of their last 6 against New England. They have won 5 games in a row as they have a smothering defense. To give Jay Cutler a little more time to throw the ball the Bears will need help from the running game and in games that he has had time to throw the team has been much better.

As these top contenders from their respective conferences square off this should be the game of the week.
