The Chicago Bears are back in the win column after holding down the fort on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Chicago, who had lost four straight games, defeated the Lions 20-13 in their Week 10 showdown.

Mitch Trubisky has eight touchdown passes on the season; three of those were on Sunday against the Lions. Trubisky had his best game of the season. He completed 70% of his passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns. He did not throw an interception, but he was sacked five times and fumbled once (recovered).

The quarterback position has been troublesome for the Bears. Mitch Trubisky has simply not been good. He's completing under 64% of his passes. Has thrown for just 1,390 yards and eight touchdowns through nine games. He's also been sacked 22 times on the season.

Chicago's defense has been solid all season. They're allowing just 17 points (4th), 94 rushing yards (9th), and 233 passing yards (15th) per game.

Unfortunately the Chicago offense hasn't done their part. David Montgomery leads the team with just 466 rushing yards. He does have five touchdowns.

Allen Robinson II has been Trubisky's favorite receiver by far. Robinson has been targeted 80 times this season. He has 53 receptions for 618 yards and three touchdowns. The next closest player (Tarik Cohen) was targeted 55 times and has 38 catches. Taylor Gabriel leads the team with four touchdown catches and is second with 277 receiving yards.

Half of Trubisky's passes have been to Robinson II or a running back.

The Rams are also dealing with ineffective play at quarterback. Jared Goff has passed for 2,610 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's also thrown nine interceptions. Goff is completing just 60% of his passes.

The Rams are coming off a 17-12 loss at Pittsburgh. In that game, Goff passed for 243 yards and two interceptions while completing under 54% of his passes.

What has saved L.A. is the spectacular play from Cooper Kupp. The star receiver has 58 catches for 792 yards and five touchdowns -- all team-highs.

L.A.'s rushing attack has been pedestrian to say the least. Todd Gurley II has rushed for just 428 yards this season. He has six receiving touchdowns. Gurley has been a one-dimensional resource for the Rams, having caught just 15 passes for 81 yards.

The Rams are 2-2 at home. They beat the Saints 27-9 and the Bengals 24-10. They lost to the Bucs 55-40 and the Niners 20-7. They've outscored opponents 98-94 in those games.

The Bears are 2-1 on the road with wins at Denver 16-14 and Washington 31-15. They lost at Philadelphia 22-14. They've outscored opponents 61-41.

L.A. has been a far cry from what we saw last season. While I'm not ready to take Chicago over L.A., I am all for taking the points. These teams will play close. Seven points is too many to give up. With that said, the pick for Sunday night is Chicago +7.
