As we get closer and closer to halfway of the current NFL regular season, the game schedule keeps getting better. Week 7 unveils many interesting clashes for this coming Sunday as the Chicago Bears welcome at the Soldier Field the Miami Dolphins.
The Bears have played a total of six games during the regular season of which the team has lost three games to the Bills, the Packers and the Panthers, but have managed to pull three wins over the SF 49ers, the NY Jets and most recently to the Atlanta Falcons.
At Chicago´s latest game over Atlanta we could see how a new philosophy implemented by Coach Marc Trestman helped replacements Darryl Sharpton, Khaseem Greene and Christian Jones excel in last Sunday’s win over the Falcons just Khaseem Greene (52) and Darryl Sharpton combined made 21 tackles at their first starts of the season.
“We really are trying to stay true to one of the big changes we made last year, and that’s to do everything we could to make every player that [general manager] Phil [Emery] brought in here game ready,” Trestman said. “I think we saw a little bit of that [in Atlanta].”

On the other hand, despite a pretty solid 2014 preseason the Dolphins had faced some issues during their presentations over the past weeks losing three games to the Bills, the Chiefs and most recently to the Packers for a close final score of 24 -27.

Miami Dolphins +3 48o

On a different note, today´s Dolphins practice saw the return to the field of several missing players ike: left tackle Branden Albert, running back Lamar Miller and center Samson Satele. The Dolphins also added a second quarterback to their practice squad, 6-foot-4, 230 pounds McLeod Bethel-Thompson who has never thrown a regular season pass in the NFL but he has spent time as a backup on several active NFL rosters is back with Miami.
One more highlight of Sunday’s action will be the game between New Orleans Saints and Detroit Lions at Ford Field. So far in the regular season, the Lions have managed to keep a good record of 4 to 2 while looking pretty strong. defensive end Ziggy Ansah finally spoke with reporters today and said that one of the keys that helped him produce 2 1/2 sacks last weekend was playing faster by thinking less.
“Just playing as hard as I can, 100 miles an hour,” the second-year pro said. “I’m not scared of making no mistakes. … Last year, I was a little bit hesitant, trying to be all cautious; you don’t want to make no mistakes because you don’t want to have coaches yell at you. But this year, I just let it loose.”
New Orleans´record stand at 3 to 2 losing to the Falcons, the Browns and the Cowboys. The betting odds for this clash betting action are:
New Orleans Saints +2.5 48o
Detroit Lions -2.5 48u
