Look for the Bears’ offense to get back on track this week. The crowd noise at the Georgia Dome could make things difficult, but Atlanta’s defense has been downright awful recently.

Just when we think it can’t get any worse, the Falcons explode against the Bears. Chicago finds a way to beat itself yet again. The offense plays an okay game but the defense fails to show up and Devin Hester scores a touchdown in some way.

The Bears are so brutal in the 2nd half, and now they head to Hotlanta to face another team that knows how to cough up late leads. Matt Ryan is playing better than Cutler so I’ll go with the Falcons.

With the record the Falcons have at home, and with the Bears record this season period, I can’t imagine a win. Matt Ryan has been doing well, Devin Hester may have something to prove and Cutler…well, he just can’t get his act together for anything.
Bears 17 – Falcons 21
As I sit in my hotel room in Atlanta, approximately 48 hours from kick-off, I am trying to find a scenario where the Bears can limp into and hopefully with no worse of a limp, limp out of the ATL with a W. The bottom line is Atlanta is good, very good at home. Matty Ice, in particular, has only lost 10 times in the dome in his career. I think it will be exciting, I think I will enjoy making the trip here, but I don’t think the Bears will slow down Atlanta enough to come out of the Dirty South with a win.
