Week 3 Monday Night Mash-up

Chicago Bears @ New York Jets,
TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Jets -3. O/U: 45.5:

Monday night poses a decent matchup with an under-rated Bears team against a grinding Jets team. Both are 1-1 and have hung in there with very respectful teams last week, (Bears/49ers & Jets/Packers). The Jets were an ill-timed timeout from tying the Packers and sending it to OT. The Bears went to San Francisco and won by 8 with Cutler carving up the secondary for 4 TD’s, 3 to Brandon Marshall. Rushing seems to be the Jets focus on offense and defense (1st in Offensive Rushing 179/game, 1st in Rushing Allowed 52.5/game). The Bears are the exact opposite with the rushing game (30th Offensive Rushing 66/game, Rushing Allowed 160/game). The Jets are going to want to keep the Bears offense off the field as much as possible with Marshall and Jeffrey 1 more week healed with their injuries, as you saw Marshall catch 3 TD’s last week. They have a great tandem in Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory which is why they are near last in the league in passing. The Bears lost to a tough Bills team in the opening week in OT and reeled with a huge win against the 49ers. The Bears rallied 17 points down and the Jets crumbled being up 18 points. Look for the Bears to use that momentum and game plan to stuff the run and put pressure on Geno Smith. Once the Bears have the ball, they will attack one of the worst secondarys in the league. Cutler will have numerous weapons to use and use them he will. Take the Bears to win with the points in the Over. Bears 27-21
