The Chicago Bears (2-0) face off against the Atlanta Falcons (0-2) in this 1 pm week 3 matchup on Sunday.

The Bears are coming off a 2-0 start taking down the Lions in week 1 and the Giants in week 2. Their defense looked pretty solid as usual but Mitch Trubisky has yet to show that he is a top tier quarterback. The Bears will look to utilize David Montgomery in the backfield and Darnell Mooney and Allen Robinson through the air.

The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a crazy late game upset to the Cowboys. Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense looked solid. Todd Gurley has been dominating the carries from the backfield and Calvin Ridley has stepped up at WR this season. The Falcons still have Julio Jones but he's been dealing with a hamstring injury, and I don't expect him to have an exceptional game against the Bears defense after the Cowboys limited him to 2 receptions for 24 Yds.

I like the Bears to cover the spread here. With Julio Jones banged up the offense will likely rely heavily on Calvin Ridley and Todd Gurley. Mitchell Trubisky should have a decent game against a shaky defense like the Falcons.
