1. Justin Fields will rush for over 100 yards for the Chicago Bears against the Minnesota Vikings 

This may not be that bold, considering he just did it last week. Still, that was just the fifth time in his career he hit that mark and the first time all year. Last year, he did it in back-to-back weeks against Detroit and Miami. This year, he has the chance to do it against Detroit and Minnesota. 

Minnesota has a good run defense, but they also have not faced many rushing attacks like Chicago. The Eagles ran all over the Vikings, and while Jalen Hurts only had 35 yards, he had two touchdowns, and DeAndre Swift went over 150. That is because the speed killed the Vikings. 

The Vikings have a well-schemed defense, but they do not have the athletes to run with Justin Fields. So, Fields will struggle to pass against Brian Flores and his blitzes, but he can escape and run. He did that for 46 yards in the first half against the Vikings the first time around.

Fields will have a similar success this time around and will finish the game. A fourth-quarter breakaway run will get him over 100 rushing.
