The Chicago Bears defense will have their hands full with Joe Burrow

Player No. 3: Joe Burrow

It’s a shame because we should be going into this game expecting a fun QB matchup between two rising stars but that is not the case this week. That being said, Joe Burrow is certainly someone to watch for in this game.

Coming off of a brutal injury last season, he wasn’t guaranteed to start week one of this season but he was able to get healthy enough in time. Unfortunately, the Bengals have their own o-line problems and Burrow was sacked five times.

Despite all of the sacks, Burrow still looked strong in his 2021 debut. The Bears have talent who can rush the passer and that will be key in this game. If Burrow has time to throw, expect the Bears CB’s to get beat this week by the Bengals stud wideouts.

Another weakness of this Bears team is no doubt their secondary. Expect the Bengals, and Joe Burrow to look to exploit that weakness come Sunday afternoon. Burrow got off to a very good start last season before his injury and I don’t see any reason as to why he can’t match his output from 2020.

it’s going to be interesting to see how the Bears come out on Sunday. I think the Bengals are much better than people are giving them credit for and falling to 0-2 will be a tough hole for the Bears to crawl out of.
