Two teams that are challengers in their respective divisions could use a win on Sunday as the Baltimore Ravens and the Chicago Bears meet this Sunday at 1 PM ET at the Soldier Field, in the NFL’s week 11.
The Ravens beat the Bengals last week, but they made every single move in the second half to lose that game. Baltimore’s biggest problem is their running game as RB Ray Rice averages 2.5 yards per carry.
“We need to get better with our run game,” coach John Harbaugh said. “We gained a few more yards (against the Bengals), but that to me is negligible because we’re not as a successful as we want to be. Not even close.”
Their opponents, the Bears, lost last week at home against the Detroit Lions and dropped a chance to be on top of the NFC North division. QB Jay Cutler won’t be in the game, and it will be Josh McCown who will lead the offense.
“We know what Josh can do,” center Roberto Garza said. “Obviously, (at Green Bay) was a testament to what his preparation is, and we just got another sample of Josh’s ability to lead this team and step in to situations like that.”
The NFL point spread has the Bears as 3 point favorites at home, and the game total was set at 44 points. Chicago is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games when playing Baltimore; the total has gone UNDER in five of the last six meetings between these franchises.
