Elite Kids Mike Ribeiro Jersey San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has left Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers and will be evaluated for a possible concussion, according to FOX sideline reporter Laura Okmin.
OddsShark has Chicago as 2.5-point favorites, just under the typical 3-point edge given teams at home. Initially it might seem generous to give Baltimore points as they come off an overtime victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, but the Ravens have been poor when playing away from home this season. The have a 1-3 record when playing away from M&T Bank Stadium.
The over/under is set at 46.5, and it could be difficult for either team to reach this mark. Chicago and Baltimore combine for an average of 49.7 points per game, but the Bears are below their season average when McCown takes snaps and the Ravens have averaged 18 points in their last three games.
Sunday’s game is one of the week’s closest and the largest line being offered is Chicago minus-3.

The Raiders defense is coming off an embarrassing performance. Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes against the Oakland secondary last week. He also had a perfect quarterback rating. The performance took the sheen off of what was another fun to watch, if erratic, performance by Terrelle Pryor.
Eli Manning is no doubt licking his chops. The two-time Super Bowl MVP is finally starting to settle down. After throwing interceptions in six straight games to start the season, he has thrown zero over his last two, albeit with just one touchdown pass. Sunday’s game may be his chance to put himself firmly back in the good graces of Giants fans, ideally with a third straight win in tow.
