THE TEAM NEWS

CHICAGO BEARS

  • Chicago have put their loss in their first game well and truly behind them as they made it three wins in a row against Minnesota thanks in large to another superb defensive effort which restricted the Vikings to just 222 total yards and six points.
  • Mitchell Trubisky was an early casualty in last Sunday's game and the Bears QB is likely to be out until Week 7 but Chase Daniel did a good job when filling in and will get a chance to shine in the coming games.
  • The Bears will also head into this contest with WR Taylor Gabriel and DT Akiem Hicks both looking likely to miss a second consecutive game with the pair sitting out the first two practices of the week.

OAKLAND RAIDERS

  • Oakland produced a great display on the road at Indianapolis as they improved to 2-2 thanks to a shock win over the Colts but they will surrender home advantage for this game against Chicago, which will be played in London.
  • The Raiders will be without the services of LB Vontaze Burfict for the rest of the season after he received an unprecedented suspension for foul play and whilst he will appeal that ban, he will definitely sit out this game.
  • WR Tyrell Williams sat out the first two practices of the week due to a foot injury and that has seen Trevor Davis taking reps during those sessions which could result in him coming into the game as the Raiders’ number one receiver.

THE PREDICTION

Oakland and Chicago will face-off in the first game to be held in London this season and the maiden game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Both teams picked up wins last week but it is the Bears that can make it four in a row even without QB Mitchell Trubisky under center due to a shoulder injury. Chase Daniel filled in well last week but it is the Chicago defense that will be vital and they can lead the way to earn a fourth consecutive win for the Bears.
