Keep feeding David Montgomery

David Montgomery has turned on the jets and has been an absolute stud for the Bears. In the last three weeks, the 2nd year back is averaging 136 all-purpose yards a game. He’s also scored three touchdowns and has averaged nearly eight YPC in that span. Monty has a good opportunity to continue feasting by facing three teams who have been average or worse against the run.

Minnesota is in the middle of the pack giving up 119.9 rushing yards a game. Jacksonville sits at the third-worst in the league, giving up 145.5 rushing yards a game. Finally, we got Greenbay who currently ranks No. 11 with 109.7. With having some serious momentum, the Chicago Bears need to continue to feed Monty the ball.

Stick to Mitch Trubisky’s strengths

I’m not the biggest fan of the Bears QB, but you have to give credit when credit is due. In the last three games, Mitch has an average completion percentage of 68.5 %. His touchdown to interception ratio has been 2.3/0.6 and he has averaged 258.6 passing YPG.

He was shaky in his first start back against the Packers but is beginning to turn it around. Trubisky has helped the Bears put up 66 points in the last two weeks. That reason might be because the Bears are finally letting him have a say in the offense.

Although it has been against three mediocre defenses, Trubisky has looked like a different player. He has poise and has some confidence back. These next three weeks are some of the biggest weeks in the quarterback’s career. If they lose one of these three games, this more than likely will be his last season with the Bears. It could be a completely different story if the young quarterback leads this team to three straight wins.

Blitz often and keep putting on the pressure

Before the game against the Texans, The Bears gave up 41 points to Greenbay and 34 to the Lions. They had nearly no pressure at all against the Packers and didn’t record a single sack. Against the Lions, they had two sacks but were torched by Mathew Stafford. The Bears had brought down Watson six times and were putting pressure on him, the entire game.

They need to continue that trend and keep blitzing. They also need to force turnovers early in the game and put fear in Kirk Cousins. Chuck Pagano is crucial for the Bear’s playoff hopes in these last three weeks of the season. Last week the Bears looked like the Cheifs and looked unstoppable. Although that might not happen again, they need to put pressure on Minnesota early. Keep the foot on the gas and don’t stop.
