Week 8- vs Chicago, 1 p.m.

Win (24-20)

This matchup is an interesting one, and I give the early edge to New England. The difference here will be Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis. These two will be able to slow down Chicago’s offense just enough, and Tom Brady and Julian Edelman will take care of the rest.
