Los Angeles Rams: 3 predictions for Week 14 at the Chicago Bears
By Steve Rivera
The 11-1 Los Angeles Rams play the NFC North Leading Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in a game where two defensive stars will be front and center on Sunday Night Football.
The Los Angeles Rams play a Week 14 game on the road at the Chicago Bears. The prime time game on NBC will feature two NFC teams high on the list of post season contenders.
The Rams, who won last week at another NFC North team the Detroit Lions 30-16, will look to keep a hold of home field advantage. As for the Bears, they hope the return of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky gives them a needed lift after a tough overtime loss on the road against the New York Giants.
Weather in the Windy City will be cold, as game time temperatures will dip into into the upper 20’s. While snow won’t be a factor, the cold of a Sunday night in Chicago against a defense led by Khalil Mack may be.
Mack was a player the Rams missed in Week 1 when LA opened their 2018 campaign against the Oakland Raiders. He’ll be a factor on Sunday night, but perhaps not as big as Trubisky may need to be. To beat Los Angeles, Chicago will need to score points, or have a quarterback who can get them in position to do just that.
Make no mistake, Mack will have a good game and a noteworthy one against the Rams. But it’ll be the Bears offense who will need to come up with big plays in this game, if they hope to have any chance against Los Angeles.
