4. Protect Mitchell Trubisky
This season, the Packers have a total of 40 sacks, with five players having three or more sacks. In week one, Mitchell Trubisky was sacked four times. While that doesn’t seem like a high number, it is significant specifically because many sacks came at key times.
The Packers front seven has proven that it has taken a big step forward as compared to 2017. What makes this front seven, even more, dangerous is the fact that there is a plethora of young talent like Kyler Fackrell leading the way.
However, Trubisky has been sacked just 20 times this season and just four times over the last four games he’s been active.
The Packers have proven that they can get after the quarterback, however, Trubisky’s athleticism and scrambling ability comes in handy here. Trubisky has improved greatly since week one. Since then, he’s made smarter reads, gone through progressions properly, and just played smarter football overall.
If the Bears offensive line can protect Trubisky efficiently this Sunday, then they have a chance at hopefully beating Green Bay.
