Keys To Victory: Can Chicago Bears Build a Win Streak?
By Usayd Koshul
1. Start Fast And Be Consistent
Last week, the Bears managed to score once in the first half, before exploding for 17 points in the second half against the Jets. Considering New York had just 207 yards of total offense, it’s fair to wonder as to why the Bears didn’t win in a blowout.
One thing that the Bears have failed to do this season is be consistent all throughout the game. Against the Patriots, in six possessions in the first half, the Bears punted three times and scored a field goal and two touchdowns on the other two possessions. While the offense hasn’t been bad, it certainly hasn’t been great either.
Although there was some improvement against the Jets, it’s fair to wonder how much better the Bears can be if they can find consistency on offense.
The formula for the Bears being consistent starts and ends with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. Trubisky must consistently hit his receivers. While everything is not the quarterback’s fault, Trubisky is truly the key to the Bears offense taking the next step. Against the Buffalo Bills, it’ll be interesting to see how the Bears offense responds against a very underrated defense.
