NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Chicago. According to latest NFL trends, Bears are 6-0 ATS L6 on road after having won 2 out of their last 3., 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. Dal is: 1-8 ATS after 1 or more consecutive win, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in October, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 vs. NFC, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game and are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game. Jay Cutler has shined in his most recent road contest against the Dallas Cowboys, winning 27-20 in 2010. But Chicago is led by its defense, which recorded six of its league-best 14 sacks and had two interceptions, one returned 45 yards for a touchdown by Major Wright in the fourth quarter in a 23-6 win over St. Louis. Chicago should be getting back star RB Matt Forte', who practiced on Wednesday, after sitting out last week's game with a sprained ankle. If he can't go, Michael Bush is a solid replacement. Dallas (2-1) committed three turnovers and allowed Tony Romo to get sacked four times in an ugly 16-10 win over Tampa Bay last week, which also included 13 penalties for 105 yards. The Bears should win a defensive struggle.
