The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3) will travel to the Windy City on Sunday to face the Chicago Bears (1-4) on the road.
The Jaguars are coming off the bye week with renewed life. Prior to taking the week off, the Big Cats scored the team's first victory of the season against the Indianapolis Colts in London. The 30-27 victory was a step in the right direction, as the squad lost three-straight to begin the year.
The Bears just lost to the Colts in Week 5. Looking to rebound after a similar tough start to that of the Jaguars, the Bears will try to make the most of quarterback Brian Hoyer's stellar play as of late. Chicago will need to win this one to keep their season alive.
