Keys To Victory: How Will Chicago Bears Stop Miami Dolphins?
2) Run A Pass Heavy Offense
Against Tampa Bay, the Bears offense was clearly a well-oiled machine. The Bears had 344 passing yards along with no turnovers. In what was the Bears best offensive showing in recent memory, Mitchell Trubisky and co. will need to use the same formula to beat the Dolphins.
Entering the game on Sunday, the Miami Dolphins team have given up more than 300 yards against five straight opponents.
For the second straight week, the Bears should use Taylor Gabriel and Tarik Cohen heavily to stretch the Dolphins defense. .Through five games, Miami’s opponents have averaged 7.2 yards per play.
Once the Bears are inside the Miami 20-yard line, the goal should be to use size over speed. Getting the ball to Allen Robinson and Trey Burton will be a major factor in how the Bears redzone offense performs. Near the goal line, pitching the ball to Jordan Howard and having him run outside could work as well.
While most would like to see a balanced offense and watch Jordan Howard get about 15 touches the whole game, Miami’s run defense has allowed an average of 109 rush yards per game this season. It’s clear that the Bears passing offense is in store for another big day.
