Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full thing here.
The Bears proved they still have one of the NFL’s best defenses in their season opener. If you thought otherwise, you’re crazy.
They were always going to have a huge advantage over the Broncos’ O-line in this matchup, but now it’s an even bigger mismatch with news that Ja’Wuan James will not play on Sunday. The drop-off to backup Elijah Wilkinson is significant.
There’s only so much highly-respected OL coach Mike Munchak can do with this unit in so little time. While I love the hire long-term, Chicago’s endless list of fully capable pass rushers should feast against this subpar line trying to protect a 34-year-old Joe Flacco.
