The Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears will both be looking to pick up the pace from last season. The Chicago Bears finished a disappointing 8-8, narrowly missing a shot at the playoffs in the tightly contested NFC North. The Buffalo Bills will be looking to climb out of the cellar after finishing 6-10 in last place in the AFC East.
The Chicago Bears look to field a powerhouse offense this season, with most of their offensive starters from last year returning. The biggest question mark on the offensive side of the ball for Chicago is quarterback Jay Cutler — not his performance so much as his health. Cutler has shown a decided inability to make it through an entire NFL season in one piece. The Bears will need him to stay upright and on the field if they hope to compete for the NFC North this year, as they’ll be chasing the perennially tough Green Bay Packers and a much-improved Detroit Lions. The Bears have also beefed up their defense, especially the D-line. Look for Chicago to be tough against the run in today’s Chicago Bears vs. Buffalo Bills game and throughout the season.

The Bills meanwhile are looking shaky already. They had a dismal preseason, going 1-3 behind struggling second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel. If Manuel doesn’t perform well early, Chicago’s defense could very well see a very familiar face taking snaps. The Bills signed former Chicago Bear quarterback Kyle Orton, who is expected to compete for the starting job if Manuel flounders.
In a related report in Inquisitr, Kyle Orton’s signing sparked a good deal of umbrage among Dallas Cowboy fans.
The Bills are likely to rely heavily on their running game. Expect C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson to both get plenty of carries. The question, of course, is whether they’ll be able to crack the recently revamped defensive line of the Chicago Bears.
Look for both the Buffalo Bills and the Chicago Bears to look to improve on last season. The Bears, especially, could make a serious bid for the playoffs if they start their season out right.
