Bills-Bears Preview Coverage
The Buffalo Bills host the Chicago Bears on Sunday, looking to get back on track after the hard-fought loss to the Patriots. Sitting at 2-6 with myriad injuries at the quarterback position, Sean McDermott’s team is already out of the playoff race, but that doesn’t mean that there is nothing to play for. Buffalo actually gets to start playing spoiler to all of those teams still in the race. First up are the Bears, who are leading the NFC North at 4-3. Matt Nagy’s team is bouncing back and forth between dominant performances and those that are far less so, but they still have an opportunity to win the division for the first time since 2010.
However, the Bills will have a much more difficult time achieving this goal due to multiple injuries. Rookie quarterback Josh Allen is still out due to the arm injury suffered against the Texans and is unlikely to return anytime soon. To make matters worse for Buffalo, recently signed free agent Derek Anderson has also been declared out, along with linebacker Tremaine Edmunds (concussion). The former Panthers backup quarterback suffered a concussion against the Patriots during his first start of the season, leaving to never return.
With Anderson out, the Bills will once again rely on Nathan Peterman while the recently-signed Matt Barkley sits in reserve. Read more at 247sports.com
