The Chicago Bears had their 2021 season kickoff to a rough start with a loss to the Rams on Sunday night. The final score ended up being 34-14 with the Rams in control the entire game. Outside of a strong rush offense, the Bears couldn’t do much on offense and the defense looked the worst that it’s been in a while.

Despite the ugly loss in the opener, the NFL is a week-to-week league and it’s now time to move on to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are a team that you can argue are on the opposite side of the spectrum than the Bears right now.

The Bengals are an up-and-coming team, while the Bears despite having Justin Fields on the roster, are on the way down it seems. This should be an interesting game and a good test for both teams to see where exactly the teams are at.

The Chicago Bears must play better on both sides of the ball to beat the Bengals

The Bengals are coming off of a nice overtime win against a division rival in the Minnesota Vikings. The argument can be made the Vikings are a better team than the Bears and this will be no easy task to get a win if you’re Chicago.

The Bears are going to have to hold the young talent that the opposition has in check. On paper, I think the Bengals have the edge over the Bears come Sunday but we will see come kickoff. For now, let’s look at who the Bears need to keep quiet to have a chance on Sunday.
