Cody Parkey, Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots

The game script of the Bears – Patriots matchup could be closer than most expect. Assuming the Bears defense has a bounce back performance, the Patriots could be content with trading scores, even if they don’t punch it in every time. As long as Stephen Gostkowski is kicking field goals then that takes away the urgency to score touchdowns on every possession while playing the Patriots. Parker has had three knockout performances this season and two of those games came against teams that can score quickly. The Pats are giving up an average of close to five scoring drives per game, if Parkey can get his field goals in early while the game is close, he could end up amongst the point leaders for Week 7.
