For the third time this season, the Chicago Bears will hit the road. This time, it will be to face the Baltimore Ravens. The Bears (1-4) are still struggling to find a winning formula, after finding themselves on the losing end of their last two games. As for the Ravens (3-2), they will be hoping to add another “W” to the win column after their victory over the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.
This week’s matchup has the makings of being a low-scoring game. Both the Bears and the Ravens are near the bottom of the league when it comes to scoring. However, Baltimore’s defense is only surrendering an average of 19.4 points per game, while Chicago’s defensive unit has allowed an average of 24.8 points per game.
Of course, play calling, penalties, and execution will all play key factors in determining the outcome of this NFC North-AFC North matchup. But, what are the five things that will be vital for the Bears to get back on the winning track against the Ravens? Take a look.
