The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been able to get past several injuries to get to the top of the NFC South rankings and they don’t plan to slow down when they face the Chicago Bears at Raymond James Stadium in Week 7.

The Bears will be trying to improve their 3-3 record by working on their defense, as they lead the NFL in sacks.

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 12:25 p.m. PT

The two teams went head-to-head last season, with the Bears prevailing 20-19 in the match held in Chicago. Tampa Bay didn’t appear to be fazed by that defeat as they went on to win the Super Bowl. They now also seem to be well on their way to becoming a serious contender for another Lombardi trophy with a strong 5-1 start.

With the offensive team having a year of working together, Tampa has averaged a league-high 340.7 passing yards per game.

The Bears meanwhile are not the team they were compared to last year’s win, as they now have rookie quarterback Justin Fields at the helm.

Chicago will try its hardest to sack Brady and they know that it’s a challenge as Tampa offense has been in sync after playing together this year.

Meanwhile, the New York Jets will clash with the New England Patriots in what will be a match-up of the rookie quarterbacks this week.

New England has its defensive starters dealing with injuries and is coming from a painful loss to the Dallas Cowboys, while the Jets are coming off well-rested after their bye week.
