Los Angeles Rams Game Notes
Darrell Henderson (thigh) was removed from the Week 7 injury report and will play Monday against the Bears. Henderson practiced in full Saturday after sitting out Friday. He played a season-high 53% of the snaps last week against the Niners and continues to look like the back to own in L.A., though coach Sean McVay can change his mind at any moment. Henderson is an RB2 with upside in the Rams' run-heavy offense.
Chicago Bears Game Notes
Allen Robinson caught 5-of-9 targets for 53 yards in the Bears' Week 6 win over the Panthers. Those 53 yards are a four-game low for Robinson by a considerable margin, but a major factor was the Bears' leading on the scoreboard for the entire contest. Carolina's defensive backs continue to perform above expectations, but you got the feeling that Robinson could have posted bigger numbers if the Bears pushed the pedal down a bit more. He likely will draw shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey in Week 7.
Bears vs. Rams Week 7 Monday Night Football Prediction
The Bears have covered the spread in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams and are a perfect 4-0 against the number in their last four Monday night games. Chicago has also covered in four of its last five conference matchups and is 4-1 against the number in its last five games as an underdog. On the other side, the Rams have struggled to cover on Monday nights, posting a 2-7-1 ATS record in their last 10 games on MNF and are just 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games when facing a team like Chicago that owns a winning record on the road.
