Patriots vs Bears

Patriots vs Bears :NFL 2018 Football This is a good spot Patriots vs Bears for the Bears to possibly pull the upset, with the Patriots coming off an emotional Sunday night victory Patriots vs Bears Chicago Bears will host the New England Patriots in a Week 7 showdown at Soldier Field. Join us for a live game day chat featuring

heir slow start squarely in the rearview mirror, the New England Patriots look like the New England Patriots—which is to say, quite good.

On the Sunday they’ll visit the resurgent Chicago Bears featuring a stellar defense led by pass-rusher Khalil Mack. The Pats have proven up to a challenge however. They’re fresh off a shootout victory over the previously undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. Quarterback Tom Brady was typically great, especially as things got down to the wire late in the fourth quarter.

“You can look in a man’s eyes and know, in pressure situations, this guy is not going to be able to handle this, he’s not going to be ready. You look into that guy’s eyes and it’s a laser-like focus,” said Patriots teammate Matthew Slater to ESPN about Brady. “They haven’t always worked out for us, but you see extreme confidence in his eyes, and that’s because he’s prepared, he’s done it, and he believes in the guys around him.”

Brady and coach Bill Belichick once again have New England (4-2) atop their division, the AFC East, heading into Sunday. The Bears are 3-2 and also lead in their division, the NFC North. They’ve been boosted by Mack’s presence, who was acquired in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. It made headlines when Belichick balked at comparing Mack (or anyone else, for that matter) to all-time great Lawrence Taylor, but he did have complimentary words for the Bears’s pass rusher in a press conference leading up to the game.

“He gets after everybody. He’s a very disruptive player, so he turns it over on sacks, strip-sacks, fumbles, tipped balls, interceptions,” Belichick said, vis CBS. “He’s a really strong run player, he’s a good pass rusher, he’s got speed, he’s got power. He’s very aware and instinctive. So, yeah, he does more than sack the quarterback—he knocks the ball away from him, but he knocks it off running backs, too. He’s tough.”

The Bears are, however, coming off a tough overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins that ended a three-game winning streak for Chicago.

“Games like this sting,” Bears receiver Allen Robinson said after the game, according to the Associated Press. “It stings for everybody.”

Beating the Pats could be a great way for Chicago to get back on track—but it surely won’t be a easy task to complete.

Sunday Night Football

How To Watch ‘Sunday Night Football’ Online For Free The New England Patriots will take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Sunday Night Football game is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast on NBC.

But there are alternatives for those who want to tune in without cable.

As Money has previously reported in detail, fans can stream NFL games live on their phones for free this season, using the Yahoo Sports app and the NFL App. But there’s a catch: These apps only allow viewers to stream games live if they are watching on their phone, not on TV. Sometimes, viewers are required to stream games using data, not Wi-Fi, which could cost you depending on your phone plan.

While not every NFL game is available for streaming on those apps, primetime Sunday Night Football games are — including the Patriots vs. Lions matchup tonight.

Legend meets phenom on Sunday Night Football this week. The Chiefs second-year signal caller Patrick Mahomes leads the NFL with 14 touchdown passes, despite being held out of the end zone against Jacksonville last week. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and the Patriots seem to have put it all together. With Julian Edelman back and Sony Michel providing a consistent rushing attack, New England took down Indianapolis in Week 5, but the unbeaten Chiefs will be their toughest test of the young season. Can Mahomes, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce, and Co. take down the Pats in Foxborough for the second straight year? Or will Brady show the young prodigy how it’s done?

If you’re looking for a free NFL live stream, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to find a New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs live stream.

Chargers vs Titans

“The thing about where I’m from, an island in the middle of the Pacific, you’re talking about growing up there, (now) playing in London … it’s pretty surreal,” Mariota said after the Titans’ practice Friday at Syon Park on the banks of the River Thames, about 10 miles west of London, “and something that I won’t take for granted.”

But how did the Titans end up here, set to take on the Los Angeles Chargers at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday (8:30 a.m. CT, CBS) in their first international game in what will be the 23rd NFL game played in London? Tennessee’s involvement traces back to the origin of “London Week.”

Thriving in England’s capital
It rained in London on Oct. 28, 2007.

“A complete deluge,” said Alistair Kirkwood, NFL UK managing director.

And the game between the Giants and Dolphins — the first NFL matchup in London — wasn’t much to write home about either, a 13-10 snoozer that New York eked out. But the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl that year, and had nothing but good things to report about their Week 8 trip.

“With the Giants coming out with a win and speaking about how beneficial the experience was in terms of team bonding and a real opportunity for them to regroup and build going into the second half of the season,” Kirkwood said, “it turned everybody’s eyes and made them think, ‘OK, well instead of thinking about it as risk, maybe it’s actually an opportunity.’

“We moved away from having to encourage teams to go, to in many cases lots of teams volunteering and wanting to go.”

So a plan to have the next NFL game in London four years later, in 2011, was scrapped. The NFL instead played one game in London per year from 2008-2012. It then played two there in 2013, three in 2014 through 2016, and four last season.

This year’s schedule that includes only three London games is an anomaly, Kirkwood said; going forward, London will host a minimum of four games each year.

Why the Titans?
The onus is on the home team. They, after all, are the ones who have to forfeit a built-in advantage.

The first way to go about hosting a game in London is by volunteering. The Jaguars, for example, have hosted at Wembley Stadium each of the last five seasons.

“To (Jacksonville owner) Shahid Khan, it’s important to broaden Jacksonville on a world stage,” Kirkwood said, “and create some economic support as well as awareness for the city of Jacksonville.”

There are also examples of NFL teams being required by the league to serve as the home team for an international game. Last week’s game at Wembley Stadium featured the Raiders as the home team because the NFL requires a franchise that moves cities — as the Raiders are set to do from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020 — to host an international game as part of that relocation. It’s the same reason the Chargers, who recently relocated to L.A. from San Diego, will host Sunday.

“There’s lots of different mechanisms (that have been agreed upon by the league’s owners),” Kirkwood said.

Once the home team is established, it has some say in which opponent it will face overseas. The Chargers, for example, could protect one game on their schedule.

“They’d be able to say, ‘I’ve got ‘x’ team that either for strategic reasons or for commercial reasons, I want to stay at home,’” Kirkwood said.

“Tennessee did not come up as an option in many of the (previous) years. It’s not as simple as, you would like Tennessee. You need to actually have the home team that has them on the road schedule in the first place. Then it’s the case of can you get agreement with the home team. So for us, we hadn’t had the Titans but thankfully we had the opportunity this time round to bring them over. They were on top of our list and the Chargers agreed.”

The Titans will become the 28th NFL team to play a game in London and 29th team to play an international game.

Titans to host?
Will the Titans host an international game anytime soon?

“I’m not aware of any conversation that has ever taken place through Tennessee about it,” Kirkwood said. “There are a whole bunch of teams where either the owner believes that it’s not the right thing to do for them but they’re supportive of the overall international agenda, or their stadium leases or how they’re currently structured prohibits them from doing it.”

All that said, “home” and “away” distinctions are merely semantics on the international stage. Here, “there’s not really one home team, one away team,” Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said. “They’re all just fans of the sport of football. You might see 32 different jerseys throughout the course of watching tape.

“So it’s exciting for our team. It’s exciting for our ownership group to have their organization represent the NFL on the international stage.”

Sunday’s game is sold out at Wembley Stadium, which has a capacity of 90,000. But with such a broad spectrum of NFL fandom expected to be on display, Ryan doesn’t imagine he’ll see his jersey in the crowd.

“I would be surprised,” Ryan said. “If I see Logan Ryan jersey, I’ll have to find that person and send them something.”

Denver Broncos at Arizona Cardinals

Day and Time: Thursday at 8:20 p.m. ET

TV and Live Stream: Fox, NFL Network and Fox Sports GoDenver Broncos edge-rusher Von Miller told the media on Tuesday that his team was “going to kick [the Arizona Cardinals’] ass.” That’s a bold statement considering Denver has lost its last four games, although, in fairness, the combined record of the teams they have faced in that span is 18-6. However, the 1-5 Cardinals have struggled all season as well, so perhaps Miller’s prediction may ring true.

Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers in Wembley Stadium, London

The Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers will kick off Sunday’s festivities in London as they battle in the second contest of the NFL’s 2018 London Games. The Titans have dropped two straight and haven’t scored a touchdown since Week 4, while the Bolts are riding the high of a three-game winning streak. L.A. has found success without stout edge-rusher Joey Bosa, who has missed all season with a foot injury but could be back after this game.

The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans are tied at 3-3 atop the AFC South, so this divisional matchup brings added important as the winner will hold a share of first place at worst heading into Week 8.

TV and Live Stream: CBS and CBS All Access

The battle between the New England Patriots offense and the Chicago Bears defense is must-see television for pro football fans Sunday. The Pats have scored 119 points in their past three games, while Chicago is fourth in fewest points allowed. Will the Bears pass rush (led by edge-rusher Khalil Mack) get to quarterback Tom Brady, or will the New England offensive line hold on long enough to keep the team rolling?

Buffalo Bills at Indianapolis Colts

Day and Time: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

TV and Live Stream: CBS and CBS All Access

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is out with an elbow injury, and veteran Derek Anderson will take his place. He may only need to manufacture a couple of scoring drives to win this game if the Bills defense stays red hot, as Buffalo has allowed just 50 points in their past four-and-a-half games. However, the Colts will likely welcome back No. 1 wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who practiced in full Wednesday after missing the two previous outings with a hamstring injury.

Cleveland Browns at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Day and Time: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

TV and Live Stream: Fox and Fox Sports Go

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired defensive coordinator Mike Smith as the team has allowed the league’s most points per game through six weeks. Whether a change in leadership has any effect is up for debate, but we’ll start finding out answers Sunday as the Bucs welcome the Cleveland Browns into town. Cleveland is coming off an ugly 38-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
