2020 Chicago Bears: Week 3 report card vs. Atlanta Falcons
If it wasn’t for Trubisky’s 45-yard scramble, Chicago’s backfield would have rushed for a mere 79 yards. It was mentioned that the running game didn’t get a lot of opportunities, but Atlanta’s defense found themselves making a number of stops in the Bears’ backfield. As for the pass protection, both Trubisky and Foles did feel some pressure in the pocket. The offensive line surrendered two sacks on the afternoon.
After having two very strong weeks to start the season, this was a slight step backward for the Chicago Bears offensive line. This does not mean the unit cannot rebound versus the Colts in Week 4, but honestly they better because the Colts front seven is much better than what the team saw in Atlanta in Week 3. The line must not allow that easy, interior penetration. Nick Foles will need time to operate and David Montgomery and company will need some holes to work with.
