The Chicago Bears will host the New York Giants on Sunday from Soldier Field in this NFC matchup. Both of these teams are out of the playoff picture.

The Giants come into this one on a four game losing streak after losing on the road 34-10 to the Philadelphia Eagles. Mike Glennon finished 17-of-27 for 93 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

The Giants have been without Daniel Jones for some time now as he has been out with a neck injury.  He has a 19.0 QBR while completing 55.1 percent of his passes for 766 yards with four touchdowns and eight interceptions and six rushing attempts for 20 yards with a single rushing touchdown.

The Giants offense averages 303.5 yards a game which is 30th in the league. They are scoring 16.5 points per game as they give up 363.9 yards and 24.3 points per game to their opponents. 

The Bears are third in the NFC North with a 5-10 record on the season. They are coming off a 25-24 road win over the Seattle Seahawks in their last time out. Nick Foles went 24-of-35 for 250 yards and a touchdown.

Justin Fields is the future of this team but is dealing with an ankle injury that has him listed as questionable after missing last week. He hasn’t been impressive this season but the Bears have a lot of faith in him. He has a 25.2 QBR while completing 58.9 percent of his passes for 1,870 yards with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions through the air and 72 rushing attempts for 420 yards with two rushing touchdowns.

The Bears offense averages 308 yards a game which is 26th in the league. They are scoring 17.7 points per game as they give up 326.5 yards and 24.9 points per game to their opponents. 

The Bears are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win. The Giants are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a losing home record and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in January. The Bears are likely favored in this one because they are home, but I’ll take the points with the Giants as both of these teams have nothing to play for at this point in the season.
