The Bears looked awful last week against the visiting Dolphins and now have to go on the road to face Tom Brady who has been outstanding the past two weeks. Tom Brady owners are glad they stuck with him.
Last week aside, Cutler has been very good this season. Expect him and the Bears offense to perform better this week. Not get a win, but play better.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Brady brings 9:0 TD:INT over last three into this game against a Bears D allowing a generous 12 passing TDs and 263 passing YPG this season.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chicago Bears are 17th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks and the locker room turmoil from last week could be a sign this team is ready to turn on each other and implode.
The Patriots are just 15th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 3 weeks, but Cutler has not been playing well enough to warrant more than QB2 consideration.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
At home, on fire and facing bad Bears D. Not much to dislike here.
Pats pass D is not a good matchup on the road but its Cutler and Bears somehow good away from home this year.
