The only people watching the Chicago Bears game today are those who have money on the game, whether that is through betting or even fantasy football, Seahawks fans and those Chicago Bears fans who just enjoy misery.

With Justin Fields not in the lineup (Nick Foles is starting), there isn’t much to be watching for. Maybe you will want to see if Robert Quinn can get to Russell Wilson today and add to his 16 sacks on the season. Maybe even sets the single-season franchise record today by recording two more and getting to 18.

Then there are still the younger guys at other positions to see how they do. Teven Jenkins, Darnell Mooney, Cole Kmet, Larry Borom and Jaylon Johnson are keys to the future. Unfortunately, Johnson is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Borom was benched in place of Germain Ifedi — I know, it makes no sense.

Can Thomas Graham build on his Week 15 performance? Will Dazz Newsome see more than one target? If Larry Borom was playing as he should be, how does the line do with Jenkins and Borom as the bookends? These are the things to watch for if you are willing to put yourself through misery today.

Chicago Bears Injury Report vs Seahawks Week 16

Chicago will be without these players today:

  • Xavier Crawford, CB – Concussion
  • Jakeem Grant, WR – Concussion
  • Jason Peters, LT – Ankle
  • Andy Dalton, QB – Hand/Groin

Chicago will also still be without these players today:

  • Akiem Hicks, DT/DE – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Ryan Nall, RB – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Isaiah Coulter, WR – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Allen Robinson, WR – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Jesse James, TE – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Joel Iyiegbuniwe, ILB – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Jaylon Johnson, CB – Reserve/COVID-19
  • Tashaun Gipson, S – Reserve/COVID-19

Chicago might be without these players today too as they are listed as questionable:

  • Justin Fields, QB – Ankle
  • Marquise Goodwin, WR – Foot
  • Eddie Goldman, DL – Finger

As of now, Justin Fields will be a game-day decision on if he is the backup to Nick Foles or not. The Bears signed quarterback Ryan Willis to the practice squad on December 19, 2021. Now, he is being flexed to the active roster with all of the quarterback injuries. If Fields cannot go, Willis will be Foles’ backup.

Seattle does not have any new players who are out this week that are worth mentioning. However, their secondary is struggling as their top corners are still on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Can Nick Foles take advantage of this? Doubtful in this Matt Nagy offense.

Chicago Bears vs Seahawks, Spread, Over/Under, & Betting Pick Week 16

WynnBET’s Week 16 NFL odds haven’t changed since earlier in the week. The Seahawks are 6.5-point favorites. This means that Seattle only needs to win by a touchdown to cover. Although the Seahawks only have one more win on the season than the Chicago Bears, the fact that Justin Fields isn’t starting makes me want to stay away from this game from a Bears perspective.

If Fields were the starting quarterback, I’d take the Bears and the points. However, with Nick Foles under center, I’d lock in the Seahawks instead.

The Bears Moneyline remained the same at +230 (bet $100 to win $230). The Seahawks Moneyline also remained the same at -270 (bet $270 to win $100). I’m not touching either of these. Finally, the over/under did shift downward slightly and settled in at 41.5 points. Earlier in the week, it was set at 42.5. This will be tough because it depends on who

Chicago Bears Next Game and Schedule

The Bears have one meaningless game next week versus the New York Giants and then the only way the final game of the year could mean anything is if they play spoilers and keep their divisional rival out of the playoffs. This will depend on how the Vikings do over the next two weeks and also how the NFC playoff picture plays out. It could be a pointless final three weeks for the Bears though.

Here’s a look at their schedule for the rest of the season:

Week 17:  vs Giants
Week 18: @ Vikings
