Chicago Bears: 5 key matchups heading into Week 1 vs Rams
By Cody Young
The NFL season is just days away and the Chicago Bears will be making their debut, taking on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. The preseason is always a nice appetizer for what’s to come but it pales in comparison to real football that actually counts.
The Rams will be no easy task for a Bears team that has a lot of question marks heading into 2021. Despite making the playoffs last year, the Chicago Bears have quite a few new faces for 2021 and may take a step back in the win column this season. Before this Sunday’s game, let’s look at some key matchups to focus on during the game.
The Chicago Bears will need to get the better of these matchups to win
1. Jalen Ramsey vs Allen Robinson/Darnell Mooney
Jalen Ramsey is widely regarded as the best in the entire league at his position. The Bears WRs have their work cut out for them. Luckily, Allen Robinson is one of the best WRs in the league and these two will be a treat to watch.

Ramsey typically shadows the opposing team’s number one option, I’d expect to see much of those two against each other on Sunday. Of course, we can’t talk about Ramsey vs the Bears without referencing Darnell Mooney getting the best of him last season.
Their encounter last season was quite the topic of discussion on the internet and Ramsey will surely be matched up with Mooney on occasion.
