The Bears got off to a quick start this year but have dropped two of their last three games to sit at 4-3 on the year. The Bills didn’t get off too much of a start as they sit at 2-6. The Bears are still in the playoff hunt for the NFC North but the Bills are pretty much out of the race in the AFC due to competing with the Patriots and a 2-6 start. This game is not going to be pretty as both teams have struggled this year.

Bears vs. Bills News
Bears star defensive player Khalil Mack has been listed as questionable for this weekend’s game and won’t practice until Friday. Guard Kyle Long has been listed as out for the game and Zach Miller is still on the injured reserve due to a gruesome ankle injury. The Bills starting quarterback Josh Allen has been ruled out and backup Derek Anderson is listed as questionable. Nathan Peterman would be in his place if he was unable to start.
Bears vs. Bills Predictions
The Bears should easily take this game as they have a much more talented roster than the Bills. They are able to move the ball more effectively and can get it into the end zone. The Bills have been awful on offense and against this defense I don’t see them scoring many more points. Look for the Bears to win in a blowout as the Bills simply won’t score.
