The Atlanta Falcons (3-1) are at home against the Chicago Bears (3-1) Sunday. These are two pretty evenly matched teams, as the Falcons offense gets about 40 yards more a game than the Bears offense, but the Bears defense holds opponents to about 50 yards less than the Falcons. The Bears have had difficulty stopping the run at times this year, and the Falcons average 106 rushing yards per game. They need to try and attack the Bears on the ground and open things up for quarterback Matt Ryan. Ryan has passed for 977 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions, while completing 67% of his passes. The Bears are holding teams to 226 passing yards, but also are great at getting turnovers.
The Falcons need to get to quarterback Jay Cutler, as he has a big arm with speedy receivers to throw the deep ball. If they can pressure him, then he wont be able to go down field. Bears running back Matt Forte had been struggling the first three games, but had some huge runs last game so the Falcons need to pay attention to him as well, especially since they are giving up 127 rushing yards per game. This should be a pretty close game with two evenly match squads, but I think the Bears have the better defense so they will pull out the win.
FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Chicago Bears 30, Atlanta Falcons 24
