The Chicago Sun-Times’ experts offer their predictions for the Bears’ game Sunday at the Dolphins:
The Bears’ defense has been consistently good and consistently nasty this season. Hard to see Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has struggled the last two weeks, having much success. Season: 4-0.
How can you jump off a bandwagon when it just started rolling? You can’t. Mitch Trubisky should not get cocky — just hold the throttles while the ”D” does its thing. Season: 4-0.

The Dolphins’ offensive line is banged up, and that plays right into the strength of the Bears’ defense. Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks and friends should enjoy themselves in Florida. Season: 3-1.
Winning on the road is hard — the Bears have done it only three times in their last 18 tries. Winning on the road when you’ve had a bye week to bask in your 3-1 record is harder. To quote Admiral Ackbar: It’s a trap! Season: 3-1.
It remains to be seen if a week off will help or hurt the Bears after a rout of the Buccaneers, but odds are the momentum at Halas Hall is real. Season: 4-0.
