✅ There is a huge gap in defensive quality between these two teams. The Jets are allowing 6.3 points per game less than the Bears, and the Bears are in the bottom-five in scoring defense in the NFL this year.
✅ Chicago is going to continue to struggle moving the ball through the air here. They are throwing for the fewest passing yards per game, gaining 128.1 yards per game through the air. With the Jets ranking top-10 against the run, Chicago’s offense will be locked down here.
✅ The Jets have been a winning team against the spread so far this season. They are 6-4 against the number, and they will continue to be a winning team against the spread here.

The Chicago Bears suffered another loss last week, falling by three points against the Atlanta Falcons. The Chicago defense was not good enough in that game, which has become a common theme for them this season. That was their fourth straight game giving up 27 or more points, and their eighth loss in their last nine games.
Here, the Bears will need to find a way to move the ball on the ground to avoid a ninth loss in 10 games. Running the ball is typically the strength of the Bears offense, but they are taking on a high-level Jets run defense. If Chicago is forced to throw the football because their running game is limited, the Bears could be in real trouble in this contest.
New York Jets
The New York Jets came so close to breaking their 13-game losing streak against the New England Patriots in Week 11. But after their game was tied 3-3 into the final seconds, they gave up a punt return for a touchdown. That meant a 14th straight loss to the Patriots, and a return to last place in the AFC East.
This week, the Jets are going to try to dig themselves out of the cellar in their division once again, and their offense will need to be better than it was last week for that to happen. After being held without a touchdown against the Patriots, Zach Wilson simply has to be better here. Against a porous Bears defense, he should have every opportunity to do so.
