Who would’ve thought that this would be a matchup of two 2-1 teams? Not me.
The Chicago Bears and New York Giants have found their way above .500 heading into Week 4. Both teams have new head coaches and might be in the market for a new quarterback at years end, but for the time being, they are worried about winning in Week 4.

Bears vs. Giants Prediction and Pick
Luke Getsy, the Bears offensive coordinator, might hate Justin Fields more than even the Big 10 fans Fields tortured for years at Ohio State. If he doesn’t hate him, then he at least doesn’t trust him. Fields has thrown the ball 45 times through three games and has just 28 completions for 297 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Chicago is telling us he’s not the guy, so I think we should listen.
It has taken a monsoon and an incompetent Texans team for the Bears to get to 2-1. Sure, Chicago can run the ball. Khalil Herbert ran it 20 times for 157 yards and two touchdowns against Houston. Dallas just ran the ball down New York’s throat on Monday night and that recipe could work for the Bears.
New York coming off of a short week definitely scares me, and I can’t really picture either of these teams being 3-1. The Giants lost Sterling Shepard in Week 3, so the offense that only scored 16 points could be in trouble. Daniel Jones did not have a good game and lost it on a crucial interception down the stretch.
There are not many reasons to trust either team right now, so if I’m getting 3.5 with Chicago then I’ll take it and hold my nose.
