Top Storyline
Sunday will be the last of the Bears' four-game stretch facing off against the AFC East. After dropping the first two matchups to the Dolphins and the Patriots, Chicago bounced back last week with a win over the Jets. A victory in Buffalo would give them an even 2-2 record against the division this season and put them at 24-27 all-time against AFC East teams.

Bears coach Matt Nagy has stressed performing on both sides of the ball before, and both the Bears offense and defense had success against the Jets last week. This past week, Nagy emphasized specifically the offense hitting on all cylinders in both the run and pass game. The Bears ran for 179 yards and had 220 passing yards last week and will look to add to both in Buffalo.

"Next-man-up" mentality
When the Bears take on the Bills on Sunday, both teams will be playing shorthanded. Bears right guard Kyle Long left last week's game with a foot injury, and wide receiver Allen Robinson II sat out with a groin injury. On the defensive side of the ball, linebacker Khalil Mack missed his first career game last week and has not practiced this week. The Bears have preached a "next-man-up mentality" all week, and will face off against a team embracing the same mindset. The Bills intend to start quarterback in Nathan Peterman after injuries to quarterbacks Josh Allen and Derek Anderson.

History Lesson
The Bears are 7-5 all-time against the Bills in regular-season play. Chicago has won two of the last three. The Bears will be playing at New Era Field for the first time since 2002. Chicago and Buffalo met in 2010 when they played at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, a 22-19 Bears victory.
