1. The Chicago Bears will rush for over 230 yards as a team

Everybody is talking about the surging Justin Fields, but the Bears’ offense as a whole has taken off. Count those up as words we didn’t think we’d be speaking before the season started.

Specifically, it is the ground game that’s been working for the Bears all season long. If we focus on the last four games, in particular, the Bears have posted a minimum of 230 rushing yards in each of them. It’s not just Fields doing the damage, either. David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert have been fantastic, and Luke Getsy is also calling a few plays for receivers to take handoffs and end-arounds.

Stating that the Bears will do what they’ve done for the past four weeks, once more, might not sound all that spicy. However, to gain 230 yards in five games straight would be marching directly into history for the Bears.

The Bears are the only team in the league that has three players over 375 rushing yards on the year, which is why they have been able to continue pounding the rock.

The odds of Chicago’s offense doing this are pretty friendly, too, considering the Lions’ run defense is the second-worst in all of football. Fields is on a roll, Getsy has stayed committed, and Detroit can’t stop it. Watch this run game go for 230-plus yet again on Sunday.
