The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1) face off against the Chicago Bears (3-1) in this week 5 matchup.

The Buccaneers come in to this game 16th in total yards per game on offense (371.5 Yds/Game) passing for 273.8 Yds/game and rushing for 97.8 Yds/Game. The Buccaneers are 4th in total yards allowed on defense per game (312.0 Yds/Game) allowing 247.8 Yds/Game through the air and 64.3 Yds/Game on the ground. The Buccaneers have 14 sacks, 5 interceptions, and 3 fumbles recovered, while giving up 5 sacks, 4 interceptions, and 2 fumbles lost this season.

The Bears come in to this game ranked 24th in total offense (343.3 Yds/Game) passing for 232.8 Yds/Game and rushing for 110.5 Yds/Game. Bears are 8th in total yards allowed on defense per game (345.3 Yds/Game) allowing 230.3 Yds/Game through the air and 115.0 Yds/Game on the ground. Bears have 8 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 1 fumble recovered, while giving up 8 sacks, 5 interceptions, and 0 fumbles lost.

I like the Bears to cover in this one. The Buc's offense is banged up and Tom Brady's options will be limited if Godwin, Gronkowski, Evans, and Howard aren't cleared by Thursday. Even if he's missing 2 of the four, it's going to be a tough day for Tom. Bears could steal this game and upset the Buc's depending on who plays. If all four of them play adjust your gameplan accordingly.
