Here are three Chicago Bears’ players we will be watching closely in Week 4
Every week I have written this, but the Chicago Bears are becoming bad for my health. Now, for three weeks straight, the Bears have given me heart attacks by either almost blowing their lead or coming back from a huge deficit in the fourth quarter. Well, it happened again against the Atlanta Falcons.
The biggest news from this game was that Mitchell Trubisky was not responsible for the comeback like in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. This time, Trubisky was pulled and Nick Foles came in and dominated.
Foles essentially threw for five touchdowns (one was dropped, one was incorrectly called an interception). When he came in relief, the entire Bears team seemed to spark and rally. The Bears defense stepped up big time and the offense came through with the win.
Now, the Chicago Bears will be hosting the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are currently 2-1 with their sole loss coming to the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the other two games, they beat the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings handily.
The Bears will need to stop the rookie Jonathan Taylor at running back if they want to win. The Colts have some injuries to their wide receivers and tight ends, but that won’t mean they are a pushover. Their defense has been very hard to beat the past few weeks as they only allowed a combined 18 points. They’ve forced two safeties and intercepted opposing quarterbacks six times.
The Colts should fare to be a tough matchup, but it is a winnable one. Here are some players to watch.
