The first Game Week of the 2021 Chicago Bears season is here!

After months of grinding through the offseason, it feels good to get back to talking about a (real) football game.

Let’s introduce you to the 2021 Los Angeles Rams, Chicago Bears fans

First of all, what is “Meet the Opponent?”

Every week, the guys over at The Chicago Audible bring on an expert that covers the upcoming opponent and gain the inside scoop to kick off their weekly game preview content. By bringing on these guests, you get to gain first-hand insight into the strengths and weaknesses of that opponent entering that game week.

Pretty cool, right?

In this episode, Will DeWitt and Nicholas Moreano are joined by Jake Ellenbogen, host of The Downtown Rams Podcast, who shares his perspective on the Rams and what Chicago Bears Fans should expect from the Bears’ Week 1 opponent.

Listen as Will and Nick pick Jake’s brain on topics like how the offensive identity will be different in Los Angeles now with Matthew Stafford at quarterback, what to expect from the rushing attack now with Sony Michel in the mix, whether or not tight end Tyler Higbee can take on a larger role now that the team is without Gerald Everett, and how DeSean Jackson adds a new wrinkle to the Rams’ offense.

The guys also gain some insight into the Rams’ defense that ended last season as the top unit in both yards and points allowed including the changes to their secondary, other notable defenders not named Aaron Donald or Jalen Ramsey, the impact of newcomer A’Shawn Robinson, and what type of year is expected from former Bear Leonard Floyd who signed a four-year extension with the Rams this offseason.

So, how will the Rams challenge the Bears, what are some potential areas of weakness the Bears can exploit, and what does the Rams expert believe the Chicago Bears must do in order to win on Sunday Night?
