It will be close. That's my first prediction. This is a flip-a-coin game if you ask me.
It's hard to go against Tom Brady, who has the patience and accuracy to pick apart the cover-2. The guy is on a mission this year.
That said, the intangibles once again favor the Bears. The Pats are coming off an emotional win over a division rival, have had a short week to prepare and are on the road. Throw in the field conditions --- Bill Belichick's team plays on artificial turf, remember --- and I'm taking the Bears in a cliff-hanger, 24-23.
