5. The Chicago Bears defense will record at least three sacks
The Bears defense hasn’t exactly been bringing pressure on opposing quarterbacks this season. With Pernell McPhee on the PUP list and Leonard Floyd struggling, the Bears aren’t creating much of a rush on the edge. With Eddie Goldman missing time with a high ankle sprain, the Bears aren’t getting much interior pressure either.
If the Bears pass rush is sick, consider the Indianapolis Colts offensive line the cure. The Colts line has been allowing defenses to tee off on Andrew Luck and that won’t change this Sunday. The Bears will get to Luck thanks to a porous offensive line. Willie Young will go fishing, Jerrell Freeman will release his primal screen, and Akiem Hicks will go dancing. The Bears will get to Luck, maybe not with the success that other teams have had, but they’ll be in the backfield plenty on Sunday.
