Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Chargers

The Bears have been one of the most surprising teams in the NFL so far this season. They have a young and talented roster, led by quarterback Justin Fields. Fields has been inconsistent this season, but he has shown flashes of brilliance. He is a dual-threat quarterback who can beat teams with both his arm and his legs.
In addition, the Chargers have been a disappointment this season. They have a high-powered offense led by quarterback Justin Herbert. However, their defense has been a major weakness. They have allowed the most points per game in the NFL this season.
This game should be a high-scoring affair, with both teams having explosive offenses. However, the Bears have the better defense. Overall, we think the Bears should be able to slow down the Chargers’ offense enough to win the game.
