TNF WEEK FIVE

WEEK FIVE TNF

OVER/UNDER OF THE WEEK

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (3-1)@ CHICAGO BEARS (3-1O) +4


2020 TNF Record = 2-2


People forget, Nick Foles is a Super Bowl MVP—and Tom Brady isn’t in his 20s. Look for Foles to step up with only a week as a starter

People forget, the Bears have prime talent on all levels of a good defense, headlined by Khalil Mac and safety, Eddie Jackson.

Add to those two nuggets, the Mash unit in Tampa’s locker room—TE, O.J. Howard, Scotty Miller, RB, Leonard Fourtnette, plus two other starters. Mike Evans is probable, but the injuries are stacking up.

Last few years back to a ten-year sample the Matey’s are a great bet as a Road Fave; Da Bears are on the south side of average as a Home Dog. But…

This is the year of over reactions. Too many pundits are dissing Nick Foles, but in this unique pandemic dominated season the TNF home team advantage has to be bigger than usual. He’s had a week of practice. He'll play much better in this one.

We’ll go against the public and pundits in this one—take the Bears +4 and the Over. Look for Jackson and Mack to make some splash plays…
