Bilal Nichols and Ben Braunecker did not make the trip, they are out. Mack and Robinson did, I'd imagine both will try to play at least a small role.

I expect this game to go 1 of 2 ways, and both are games we've seen this season.

1. Arizona game.

Not much is expected from Buffalo offensively. They have 2 TDs in their last 5 games (0 in their last 2). But they have a blueprint out there. Throw quick and short, make the pass rush moot, force the DBs to make tackles in the open field. Peterman could have success early if Fangio is stubborn and doesn't adjust to what every team is going to undoubtedly try against the Bears.

Buffalo can play D though.....when they want to. 47 points to the Ravens in the opener. 6 to Vikings 2 weeks later. 37 to the Colts, but then 1 offensive TD to the Pats last week. If Trubisky isn't on his game, the Bills have some DBs (Poyer, Hyde & White) that can take the ball away. They can also get after the QB some, though Trent Murphy and Tremaine Edmunds are likely out.

2. Tampa game.

Buffalo has rotated horrible, average, and decent/good games all year. This is the 3rd game of that pattern, but their only decent/good games were with Josh Allen at QB. He obviously isn't going to play. Nate Peterman is, and he's potentially the worst QB in the league. That being said, this team did get beat by Brock Osweiler....so I'd like to think they won't take the opposing QB lightly. The Bills don't really have the speed that Miami has on the outside with the exception of maybe Zay Jones. Benjamin is fat and lazy and at some point that will probably lead to a turnover for the Bears D.

The defense is 6th in passing, but middle of the pack in run D. They are also susceptible in the middle of the field and have given up some stuff to TEs and slot WRs moreso than on the outside. That doesn't figure to be any better if Edmunds is out, and all fits what the Bears need to do. And if the Bears can sustain some drives, the Bills defense should be nice and worn down by the 2nd half if the offense continues to add to their league leading 3-and-outs.

So, either way the Bears SHOULD win this game. With the nation mostly doubting Mitch, he has a good chance to silence a lot of critics with a good "eye test" game against one of the top passing defenses in the league. Whenever the media noise around Cutler was negative, he never really seemed to have that game where he put up to make them shut up. Mitch probably isn't doing that either. But a nice easy, turnover-free win would go a long way getting the media off his back.

This is going to be more Arizona game than Tampa Bay. Buffalo has a defense that's going to give the offense problems.

Definitely what I'm expecting with the injuries the Bears have. Don't have a great feeling about it, but my hope is Peterman plays like Peterman down the stretch if the game is close.

Recovering 7 out of 15 fumbles is not that bad, announcer guys.

Yup. Looking good, other than holding on too long for that strip

Couple great throws 3rd down for Trubisky today. The middle of the field is there as I stated yesterday.

Basically every time something bad happens on defense, it's been Roquan Smith's guy.
