NFL Game Pass

The Bears will look to bounce back on Sunday after just their second loss of the year. The offense has been explosive over the last two games, averaging 38 points per game and tallying 11 pass plays of 25-plus yards. The key against the Patriots will be turning that big-play offense into points early. The Bears went scoreless in the first half against Miami last week. Meanwhile, New England leads the league in first-half points over the last three games, pacing 24 points in first halves during that span. Early offense and limiting the Patriots' attack early will be key to the Bears taking home their fourth victory of the year on Sunday.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had his way with the Bears in the past, compiling a 4-0 record against Chicago during his career. To get the win on Sunday, the Bears will have to figure out a way to stop the five-time Super Bowl champion from doing what he does best — tactically tearing apart defenses. Chicago's defense has been stellar this year and ranks second in interceptions with 10 and is tied for fourth in sacks with 18 on the season. The Bears defensive line will be tested against a New England offense that gives up just 1.3 sacks per game, the second fewest in the league. If they're not able to get to Brady on the pass rush, they'll try to take advantage through the air. Brady has thrown six picks in six games this year and is on pace to finish with his most interceptions in a season in his career. If the Bears can make the three-time NFL MVP look something less than MVP worthy, they'll put themselves in a competitive position Sunday.
The Bears are 4-9 all-time against the Patriots in regular-season play. Sunday will be New England's first trip to Soldier Field since 2010. The Bears will be seeking their first win over the Patriots since 2000, when they edged them 24-17 at home.
