On top in the NFC North and with confidence that is growing every week, the Chicago Bears head back under the lights on Monday night for another test on the road against the Los Angeles Rams.

 

Able to do just enough to win numerous times, the Bears (5-1) have just one victory against a team with a winning record.

 

In their two games against teams currently above .500, the Bears lost to the Indianapolis Colts 19-11 on Oct. 4 and defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-19 on Oct. 8.

 

If there is one thing the Bears are skilled at over the years, and under multiple coaching staffs, it is building a defense that can give the offense just enough wiggle room to get the job done.

 

That defense has allowed quarterback Nick Foles to resurrect his career yet again. Foles rallied Chicago to a 30-26 victory against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3, and he has gone 2-1 as the starter since. He guided the Bears to 23-16 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, when he completed 23 of 39 passes for 198 yards and a touchdown with one interception.

 

"I think we've made incremental changes, and it's continued to improve a little bit every week," Foles said. "I'd like to see a bigger progression this week, but you never know. The ultimate goal in this game is to win the game, it's not to put up a thousand fantasy points. It's like, whatever it takes to win a game, that's what you want to do."

 

The twist for the Bears, in their second prime-time game in three weeks, is that they will take on a team just as adept at defense.

 

While the Bears are seventh in the NFL in total defense, allowing 337.2 yards per game, the Rams are fourth on that list at 318.5 yards per game. And while Chicago gives up 19.3 points per game (seventh in the NFL), the Rams give up 19 points per game (fifth).

 

The Rams also have some questions to answer such as the fact that all four of their victories have come against teams in the lowly NFC East. They went to work this week to figure out why the offense was so off track in a 24-16 road defeat to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.

 

Los Angeles had enough mistakes on both sides of the ball to fall against an injury-riddled defense. However, what might have been the most troubling was the inability of quarterback Jared Goff to link up with his favorite target, wide receiver Cooper Kupp.

 

Kupp was targeted nine times and made three receptions for 11 yards. But it wasn't all Goff's fault. Kupp has sure hands but dropped a quick sideline post route in the end zone on one second-half drive, and Goff threw an interception on the next play.

 

"We just didn't play good as a team," Rams All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald said.

 

Donald leads the NFL with 7.5 sacks but had a hard time getting to 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers did use a quick-drop-and-throw strategy to protect Garoppolo, who is on the mend from a high ankle sprain. And it might be something the Bears adopt this week.

 

"The thing that I do genuinely believe is when you look at, 'OK, where did we fall short? Are these things we're capable of doing or are we just physically outmatched?'" Rams head coach Sean McVay said. "No, we're capable of executing and playing better football, being a cleaner operation."

 

The Rams reported fairly good health Thursday with only tight end Tyler Higbee (hand) and running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (thigh) missing practice.

 

The Bears had more issues. Among those not practicing Thursday: defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (illness), safety Sherrick McManis (hamstring) and cornerback Buster Skrine (ankle). Those limited: safety Deon Bush (hamstring) and tackle Rashaad Coward (finger).

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.

Chicago Bears vs. Los Angeles Rams

Jared Goff threw two touchdown passes and the Los Angeles defense made a statement Monday night in the Rams' 24-10 victory over the Chicago Bears at Inglewood, Calif.

Malcolm Brown rushed for 57 yards a touchdown while Gerald Everett and Josh Reynolds each caught touchdown passes as the Rams (5-2) improved to 3-0 at their new $5 billion stadium. Goff was 23 of 33 for 219 yards.

The Rams' defense held the Bears (5-2) to 49 rushing yards while recording four sacks and two interceptions. The unit entered giving up 19 points per game, fifth best in the NFL before the start of Week 7. Los Angeles has given up just 33 second-half points in seven games.

Chicago's only touchdown came on an 8-yard fumble recovery and return in the fourth quarter by safety Eddie Jackson. The Bears entered allowing 19.3 points per game (seventh in the NFL through Week 6).

Bears quarterback Nick Foles was 28 of 40 for 261 yards.

After a tight first half, Los Angeles opened the lead to 17-3 early in the second half on a 1-yard run by Brown that capped a seven-play, 55-yard drive.

The Bears were poised to answer quickly, driving to the Los Angeles 9-yard line, but Foles had his pass in the end zone intercepted by safety Taylor Rapp.

Los Angeles boosted the advantage to 24-3 on a 12-yard pass from Goff to Everett with 1:34 remaining in the third quarter. The Bears' lone touchdown came with 7:30 remaining when Jackson picked up a fumble by Robert Woods and went into the end zone untouched.

The Rams had 223 yards of total offense in the first half while building a 10-3 lead. The Bears' offense had just 126 yards of offense in the opening two quarters.

The Rams took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when Goff hit Reynolds on a 4-yard pass to cap a seven-play, 52-yard drive.

The Bears answered by driving 58 yards in eight plays and getting a 42-yard field goal from Cairo Santos on the second play of the second quarter. Los Angeles made it 10-3 five minutes before halftime on a 22-yard field goal from rookie Sam Sloman.

The Rams improved to 2-1 against the Bears over the past three seasons with the losing team scoring 10 points or fewer in each of the contests.
