Buffalo at Chicago

2 units on Buffalo PICK () (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
I think that the Bears overachieved a year ago, so I would not be surprised to see this team come down to the middle of the pack this season. Mike Martz and Jay Cutler are not a good fit, as Martz’ timing-pattern oriented offense, plays into Cutler's weakness and the end result is a Bear's team that under-utilizes its passing game, while overexerting the run. Buffalo has shored up the run defense and has an opportunistic, aggressive secondary. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Bills take one back on defense in this game. This game means more to Buffalo than Chicago, and I expect the results follow suit. Take the Bills in this one.
