Yes, we should have another ugly football game on Thursday Night Football. However, we do have some interesting matchups. DJ Moore is facing his former team for the first time and I certainly expect him to see more targets than usual. Dโ€™Onta Foreman is also in a revenge game against the Panthers after running for nearly 1,000 yards with them last year. The Panthers have allowed the fifth most rushing yards in the NFL and three of those teams have played an extra game. The Bears arenโ€™t expecting to activate Herbert, so this should be the Foreman show. On the other side of the ball, tight ends have beaten the Bears’ defense, so I like Hurst and Tremble to have decent days. The Bears have actually allowed the sixth fewest rushing yards in the NFL, but receiving backs have done a lot of damage on their way to allowing a league-high five receiving TDs to running backs. Miles Sanders has had an awful year, leading to him becoming RB2. However, he was back in the mix last week and he is a receiving back to look out for.

UPDATES: Khalil Herbert was not activated off of the IR

Carolina pass advantage, Chicago rush advantage
