Beast mode is in full swing for Marshawn Lynch, and the Bears don't stand a chance at stopping him from rushing for over 100 yards as he has in five out of his last six games.

Lynch is going up against the stout Bears defense, but he's proven to be unstoppable against even the stingiest of defenses.

Lynch ran for 109 yards and a touchdown against the vaunted Ravens defense, and won't have any problem cutting through a Bears run defense that's giving up over 100 YPG. 

It's unclear what has prompted this amazing streak, but be it the power of Skittles or motivation to ink a new deal, Lynch is the running back nobody wants to face right now and you can count on him to deliver this week.

Here are two more backs who are going to tear it up on Sunday.

Chris Johnson vs. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts slammed the door shut on Chris Johnson the last time these teams squared off, but he's running like the back everyone expected him to be coming into this season and with 130 yards or more in three of his last five games, you can expect his to explode against the Colts this time around.

The Colts have a porous defense as it is and to make matters worse, they've lost the will to compete. They have aging talent scattered throughout the locker room, but the 144.3 rushing YPG they allow makes it clear that Johnson is going to have a huge day.

Reggie Bush
vs. Buffalo Bills

Reggie Bush has back-to-back games of over 100 yards. He's been inconsistent this season, but this week he has a great chance to continue the streak and get one step closer to his first 1,000-yard season.

The Bills are going to offer no resistance. They don't have the raw defensive speed necessary to contain Bush and with a defense that allows over 130 rushing YPG, the Dolphins can't hope to control Bush like they did the first time they met.
