4. Anthony Miller stays hot with 6+ receptions, 100 yards

For much of the season, Trubisky and the Bears passing offense has relied almost singularly on Allen Robinson. For the year, Trubisky has thrown for 2,196 yards and Robinson has 850 of those yards to his credit, meaning that the former Jaguar has accounted for over one-third of Trubisky’s yardage this season. Over the past few weeks, however, Anthony Miller has arrived back in the fold.

Miller has just 38 receptions for 489 yards and no touchdowns on the year. Having said that, he’s been a force in the past three weeks with six catches for 54 yards against Los Angeles, six catches for 77 yards on the Giants and a monster nine-catch, 140-yard showing against the Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

With Anthony Brown out of the lineup in the Cowboys secondary, their defensive backs have flashed good things but have largely been inconsistent. Miller has the route-running out of the slot to really give these Dallas cornerbacks issues, especially with Vander Esch not able to help Jaylon Smith patrol the middle of the field.

Given that matchup and how heavily the Bears have been utilizing Miller in the past three weeks, that trend is going to continue on Thursday Night Football. Miller will get double-digit targets for the third time in the last four weeks and will make good on them with at least six receptions once again and topping the 100-yard mark for the second straight week.
