After a week both of these teams are going to try their hardest to forget, it is a battle of the winless teams as the Broncos travel to the Windy City to take on the Bears of Chicago. One of these teams will get their first win this weekend… who will it be?? Here is what you should know.
Honestly, I think this Broncos team is better than they are thought to be by the majority of the public. Sean Peyton is a great head coach, and in my opinion will turn this around sooner than most people might think. Russ has been solid, with a 6:2 touchdown to interception ratio, and the Broncos are 8th in the league in passing yards per game. Courtland Sutton has been kind of a beast, and this offense has a lot of receiving threats so the opponent’s secondary can not just key in on one or two threats. The run game is alright, but the defense has really struggled. I think the offense can make up for it, but will it be enough to beat the Bears at home?
Honestly I am not sure. Fine, the Bears have not looked great, but I think they are one or two adjustments away from being a solid team. Fields needs to settle down a bit and get comfortable in the pocket while feeling free to use his legs which are his strong points. Cole Kmet and DJ Moore have done the bulk of the receiving work and looked solid, while Fields and Herbert are taking the majority of the rushing yards. The defense has also struggled, but they have been better than the Broncos and I mean, ‘c’mon, it’s the Bears, they’ll figure it out at least on defense. If Justin Fields can begin to piece it together and be better with his reads and overall awareness, this Bears team goes from funny to scary about as quick as a tickle fight with your girlfriend.
