With a victory on Sunday, the Bears confidence meter could skyrocket going into a week seven home matchup against the New England Patriots. The Dolphins look like an easy team to beat on paper, but will come out and do everything they can to limit the game from becoming a total blowout. This game truly represents a test for the Bears as the playoff race begins to heat up, the Bears have a chance to begin solidyfing their playoff position. It’s likely we’ll see a heavy dose of both Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen in this game, while the Bears front seven will need to get after Ryan Tannehill in order to disrupt the Dolphins offense. Overall, this is a must win game for the Bears. They are at least one game ahead of each team in the NFC North and winning on Sunday could help potentially widen that gap. Additionally, the Bears cannot afford to play a sloppy game with the New England Patriots coming to town next week.
Prediction: Bears 30, Dolphins 14.
