    Over/Unders for the Chicago Sports Weekend:

Bears vs. Bills: 7 PM on Saturday at Soldier Field

Jay Cutler Total Plays – 8.5
8 plays in 2010 preseason opener vs. San Diego
Two pass attempts for 47 yards in that game
Lovie has hinted at perhaps a little more time for starters this week, does that include Jay?
Mac – Under Spiegs – Over

Matt Forte Total Carries – 3.5
Common knowledge that he wants a new contract
Bears President Ted Phillips believes Forte will play
Its at best questionable that Forte gains anything from playing 1 or 2 series
4 carries for 7 yards in week one of pre season last year
Mac – Under Spiegs – Under

Bears Sacks Allowed – 3.5
Allowed 6 in week one of preseason last year
Allowed league high 56 sacks last year
Offensive line did improve as the season went on last year
Buffalo has a weak pass rush, 27 sacks last year (T-27th)
Mac – Under Spiegs – Over

Dan Sanzenbacher Receptions – 4.5
Turned into this years favorite reserve WR, joining the likes of Mike Haas, Kenny Christian and Carl Ford in recent years.
The Sun-Times claimed on Wednesday that Sanzenbacher was “closing the gap” on Earl Bennett
Figures to have much playing time to help further proove himself

3rd Annual Mac/Spiegs Show Tailgate – Saturday before the White Sox/Kansas City game:
You do not need to be on any lists or anything to stop by and have a burger or dog and beer with the Mac and Spiegel Show. If you’re in the area feel free to stop by before the game on Saturday and sample from the menu. Roasted pig on site! Spiegs’ homemade jerky, bacon wrapped asparagus, Mac’s sausage and peppers, and several listeners are bringing things we hope are not poisonous.

Actual Attendees to Tailgate: 70.5

Total Pounds of Pork Leftover: 37.5
