The Chicago Bears are set to face the Oakland Raiders in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Bears come into this at 3-1 with an impressive victory over the Minnesota. Whereas, the Oakland Raiders roll in at 2-2 after beating the Indianapolis Colts.

Through four weeks, The Oakland Raiders are the 22nd ranked defense and have allowed 25.5 points per game this season. Raiders’ rookie safety Johnathan Abram is out for the season and former 1st round pick Karl Joseph has filled his spot. The Raiders also allow 8.1 yards per play, and lead the league in plays that equate to 20+ yards. While the Bears are still knocking off the offensive cobwebs, this could be their chance to put some big plays on film.

On the other hand, the Bears offense is ranked 29th in the league. They have the playmakers on offense, but will they use them? Chase Daniel has stated that Matt Nagy, “knows what I like” in terms of the playbook. The Raiders defense is a complement to the Redskins defense in terms of personnel which is another plus in the Bears favor. However, keep your eye on Gareon Conley. He has the tendency of stringing together good plays, but will it be enough to make a difference in the game? Doubtful.

This is another game for the Bears’ offense to just let loose. Open the playbook, find plays suited to Daniel and maybe even introduce some trickery that isn’t Corderrelle Patterson in the Wildcat. The fans have already seen the magic of Taylor Gabriel and Allen Robinson. Now, the time has come for Anthony Miller, Javon Wims, Riley Ridley to contribute to this football team. Bears fans have not seen that much from Miller this season. However, there is still a chance for him to have a good game and take the pressure off of Robinson and Gabriel like he did last year.

Overall, without a doubt, the Bears have the upper hand in this game. They have a stellar defense, a game manager in Daniel, and all the weapons Nagy can use to exploit the Raiders defense.
