Monday Night Football closes out Week 7 on ESPN with the Chicago Bears taking on the New England Patriots. The Patriots are coming off an undressing of the Browns last week, and are starting to find their groove as well. One big change this week, though, is that they should be starting Mac Jones at quarterback. Jones is their future, but he struggled to kick off the season and will be going up against a challenging Bears defense.
Chicago’s offense still lacks weapons to pose a consistent threat; their defense could make a game of it, but I’ll take the Patriots to be smart and methodical with the football. Patriots 24, Bears 10
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Patriots are 8.5-point favorites against the Bears.
