Take Tampa Bay to cover. The Tampa injury list might be a bit long but in my opinion they are still better than this Chicago Bears team. The Bears are putting up 21 points and allowing 20 on the season. They have turned to Nick Foles at QB. While many think Foles might be a savior I'm not convinced. Foles did have a magical Super Bowl to beat this same Tom Brady a few years ago but to me Foles is more of a system QB. Foles flourished under Chip Kelly at one time and Doug Pederson a few years ago but the systems they ran fit what he does best. I'm not sure the Bears offense is suitable to him. He lead them to a come back against the Falcons but the Falcons defense is a sieve and they find a way to lose games. Tampa Bay is giving up 23 points per game but they are a pretty good unit. Brady might be missing some weapons on offense but he loves the bright lights of prime time. He was outstanding last week throwing 5 TD passes and getting more familiar with his new teammates. Oh yeah, don't think for a second he forgot Nick Foles beat him in the Super Bowl. They might be on different teams now but Brady won't care. It's personal even if he says it isn't. Tampa Bay gets the win and cover.
