Week 8: Chicago Bears @ Washington Commanders

There is one quarterback I am very low on compared to others and that is Jayden Daniels. Daniels doesn't scream great to me and I worry about his size. He could end up being great for a couple of seasons and getting hurt to the point he never plays the same again. He is a dual-threat that will keep Matt Eberflus' defense on their toes, but it's not enough as Montez Sweat comes to play against his former team. He finishes with three sacks in this one. Wow! Chicago dominates the Commanders.

Bears - 38 | Commanders - 16

Week 9: Chicago Bears @ Arizona Cardinals

It was sad seeing Marvin Harrison, Jr. being rumored to the Chicago Bears just to see him go to Arizona with the fourth pick in the draft. That said, Rome Odunze is a fantastic consolation prize. He has traits that Harrison doesn't have plus I love his mentality. It will be fun to see Caleb Williams and Odunze grow together here in Chicago. Hopefully, they become a great duo and we see plenty of playoff appearances in their future -- maybe even a few Super Bowls. The Bears beat Arizona last year, and they do it again in 2024.

Bears - 28 | Cardinals - 20

Week 10: Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots

Instead of Justin Fields versus Mac Jones this year, we now get Caleb Willams versus Drake Maye. I was higher on Maye than many and I think he ends up being the second-best quarterback in this draft class. The point here is he will be second to Williams and by quite a bit in his rookie season. The Patriots need to rebuild and the Chicago Bears are the better team in this one. Chicago wins easily.

Bears - 28 | Patriots - 17
