4. Give me one under the radar player on each side of the ball who Bears fans might not be familiar with who will have an impact on Sunday’s game.
Rookie linebacker Lorenzo Carter (if he plays) could be the guy who disrupts the Bears offense with his skill set. Otherwise, interior defenders Dalvin Tomlinson or B.J. Hill could be a disruptive force on the inside. Other than that, there’s not much to write home about.
Offensively, the Giants successfully ran a few seam routes to tight end Rhett Ellison versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Getting Ellison involved, opens up things for Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard on the outside.
5. What’s your prediction for the game on Sunday? Please include a summary and final score.
At this point, the Bears are certainly the more complete team, and even with Mitch Trubisky out, I expect them to win the ball game. Nothing has stood out for the Giants this season unless you want to count on a few Saquon Barkley plays, and quite frankly, the only way I see New York having a chance is through a monster game by Barkley or Odell Beckham.
The only other way that the G-Men can keep it close is through turnovers, but I don’t expect a veteran like Chase Daniel to get careless, so that would seem to be a long shot.
Bears 27 Giants 20
