The Chicago Bears will need to rely on these three areas to beat the Falcons

It has not been pretty, but the Chicago Bears are undefeated two weeks into the 2020 NFL season. This team has had some great moments, but also some really bad ones. In Week 1 the team did not show up for the first three quarters, but then in the fourth quarter, it seemed like everyone woke up. Most hoped it was just rust from not playing in the preseason, but Week 2 did not help erase fan’s fears that this team has flaws.

The first half of the Giants game looked great, but then things slightly derailed in the second half. The offense could not seem to find its groove again. When it comes to playing the Falcons in Week 3, putting up 17 points will not be enough. The team must find a way to score more points.

Now, in the Bears defense, a blown pass interference call on Eddie Jackson negated a defensive touchdown and a perfectly thrown ball to Anthony Miller was dropped in the end zone. Had either or both of these went the Bears way, the scoreboard would have looked much different. The good news for the Chicago Bears is that the Falcons defense has allowed the most points per game in the NFL thus far this season. This will be a good test for Mitch Trubisky and Matt Nagy.
