Bears vs. Patriots: Our complete coverage story-stream

Bears vs. Patriots: Our complete coverage story-stream

We’ve collected all out Bears vs. Patriots stuff right here. Temperatures in Chicago on Sunday will be in the mid 40s, so there will be no second half melt down due to a Heatvantage. The Bears lost a tough one last week, but the further away from the end of that game I got, the more I realized that loss was attributed to the weather. If that game isn’t played in the blazing 90 degree sun with high humidity, I think the Bears win 9 times out of 10. But it is what it is... The Bears are 3-2 and need to bounce back this week against the 4-2, first place, New England Patriots. A win on...

Fantasy Football Forum - Week 7: Halfway Home

Fantasy Football Forum - Week 7: Halfway Home

Week 7 marks the halfway point in fantasy leagues. We’ve still got a month’s worth of bye weeks to navigate, but the early excitement of snapping up new and interesting players has slowed to a drip. That’s because NFL teams have mostly all showed who they are and what they want to be at this point. Maybe there will be some young players who get worked in naturally as they become more comfortable with the offense, but for the most part, it will take an injury (or a return from one) to potentially see an impact player. I’ve got 3 guys for you to consider adding before this week’s...

Bears vs. Patriots Injury Report: Mack, Robinson and Callahan are Questionable

Bears vs. Patriots Injury Report: Mack, Robinson and Callahan are Questionable

This is the full injury report for the Chicago Bears and the New England Patriots in advance of this Sunday’s game. There’s no question that Khalil Mack’s injured ankle limited his effectiveness last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. He tweaked it early and he simply wasn’t the same stylin’ and profilin’, Mack-attacking, quarterback sacking, football stripping, tight end chipping, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ son of a gun that we’re accustomed to seeing. Multiple reports have him playing this Sunday against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, but he’s officially listed...

Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots Preview: What to Watch For

Chicago Bears vs New England Patriots Preview: What to Watch For

Following the heart-breaking loss to the Dolphins, the gold standard Patriots invade Soldier Field. The Chicago Bears are attempting to stay above .500. A loss in this game would drop them to 3-3 and almost assuredly knock them out of first place in the NFC North. The Patriots present a huge test for the Bears, but this isn’t the one-sided affair that it has been in the past. The Bears actually seem to have an offense and I would be shocked if the defense looks like it did last week, if for no other reason than pride. If we look at the early season DVOA—provided by Football...

This might be our last chance to beat Tom Brady

This might be our last chance to beat Tom Brady

Tom Brady is 41 years old, and is 4-0 lifetime against the Bears. On Sunday, we have perhaps our last chance to beat this rascal. As the 1941 Major League Baseball season entered its final weekend, baseball fans wondered if the great Ted Williams would achieve the always exciting yet still impressive .400 batting average. He was hitting .401 entering Boston’s final series against the Athletics, and there was talk that perhaps he should sit out that series to make sure his average didn’t dip. But the Splendid Splinter was no louse. “If I’m going to be a .400 hitter, I want more than...

Bears vs. Patriots How to watch: TV schedule, streaming, odds, & more

This is everything you need to know about how to watch the Chicago Bears take on the New England Patriots. For the second straight week. the NFC North leading Chicago Bears (3-2) are taking on the AFC East leaders, but this time it’s the always tough New England Patriots (4-2). The Pats have been a consistent Super Bowl threat for nearly 20 years because they got the perfect marriage between head coach and quarterback. The Bill Belichick, Tom Brady partnership has been the best ever, and the Bears hope to have found theirs in Matt Nagy and Mitchell Trubisky. Time will tell. But a...

Bears injury report: Khalil Mack’s status for Patriots unclear

Bears injury report: Khalil Mack’s status for Patriots unclear

For the second consecutive day, Chicago’s defensive star didn’t practice. Don’t expect him to miss an epic matchup against the Patriots, though. For the second straight day on Thursday, Bears superstar outside linebacker was held out of practice as he recovers from an ankle injury suffered in last Sunday’s 31-28 loss to the Dolphins. Mack, 27, rolled his ankle early in the first half in Miami but still ended up playing 62 of 78 defensive snaps. Even while it is disconcerting not to have Mack practice at all in the midst of the week leading up to a matchup against the offensive...

Bears-Patriots the most expensive football game of the weekend

Bears-Patriots the most expensive football game of the weekend

Tom Brady is coming to town this weekend, which means that the demand for Bears tickets has skyrocketed. At 41 years old, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is in the twilight of his career. Sooner or later, one of the greatest players to ever play the game of football will have to hang up his cleats. That said, this Sunday’s matchup against the Chicago Bears could be the final time that he ever plays at Soldier Field, and the prices of this week’s game reflect that. According to ticket marketplace website TickPick, the “get-in price” for the Bears-Patriots game is $365, by...

Five Questions with Pats Pulpit: “The Garoppolo trade was the right move for the Patriots”

We catch up with Bernd Buchmasser to dish on Brady, Belichick, and Boston food spots. The defending AFC Champion New England Patriots are coming to town. Fresh off a victory against the red-hot Kansas City Chiefs, the Patriots appear to be hitting their stride. To help us prepare for what’s coming, I reached out to Bernd Buchmasser from Pats Pulpit to talk about this little upstart program coming out of Boston. Windy City Gridiron: 1.

Week 7 game preview: Bears vs. Patriots

Week 7 game preview: Bears vs. Patriots

Nothing like staving off .500 by facing the greatest dynasty in NFL history. After a promising start we’re back to staring at the possibility of being at .500 following last weekend’s overtime gut-punching loss to the Dolphins. Without that, the prospect of facing a surging New England Patriots squad, that has been among the NFL’s elite for a mind-boggling 18 years and counting, wouldn’t be as nerve-wracking. The Bears could’ve been 4-1 and a loss wouldn’t have anyone sweating. But now, at 3-2, falling to 3-3 opens that door that the Bears already peaked, that it was too soon to...
