After an exciting Week 3, in which we saw the Denver Broncos erase a two touchdown Seattle Seahawks lead in the final quarter to send the game into overtime, we finish things off with a ho hum game on Monday Night Football that will be hard for me to force myself to watch. Go figure.

Initially, I picked the Chicago Bears to beat the New York Jets because I do consider the Bears to be the better team. However, they are coming off an emotional and physical win on the road against the San Francisco 49ers and then have to travel clear across the country to take on the Jets in their own house.

Meanwhile, the Jets gave the Green Bay Packers a run for their money on the road and seem to have the tendency to surprise better teams, while losing to lesser teams. I'm not a huge fan of Geno Smith, but he showed up in his last appearance on Monday Night Football taking down the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta. He is also showing improvement as a quarterback, with a much better completion percentage over last season and has thrown six touchdowns to four interceptions over his last six games.

Given all that, I also think Jay Cutler comes out and lays an egg in classic Jay Cutler fashion. Prediction: Jets 20, Bears 17.

Who do you guys and gals have taking this game?
