Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.

Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.

The Chargers have one of the worst offensive lines in football. Their struggles and horrible injury luck have been the two biggest drivers of them stumbling out to a 2-5 start this season.

Now, the Chargers should get back star left tackle Russell Okung, who will eventually help tremendously, but I can’t imagine him not having extreme rust in his first game of the season. There’s also the issue of communication and continuity — two things that are even harder to develop on the road in a hostile environment. It also doesn’t help that Philip Rivers waits to snap the ball until the last second on such a high frequency of plays, which can allow the opposing defense to get a jump on the snap.

All of this spells trouble against a Bears defense that boasts a top-five pass-rushing unit led by Khalil Mack.
