The Chicago Bears pass rush looked great against the Browns

Robert Quinn has had up and down moments in his Chicago Bears tenure, however, his game against the Browns was an up for his standards. In 29 pass-rushing snaps, Quinn had four quarterback pressures and 1.5 sacks on the day.

Playing opposite of Khalil Mack, Quinn was expected to be able to bring pressure and take advantage of blockers keying in on Mack. On Sunday, while both he and Mack had two sacks apiece and the team totaled six on the day, the two were outshined by Myles Garrett for the Browns who ended the day with 4.5 sacks of his own.

Khalil Mack’s impact has been seen off the boxscore as he takes up blocks and opens plays for other defensive players, but on Sunday against the Browns, he was able to put up 2 sacks on the day. In 19 pass-rushing snaps, Mack was able to put together four quarterback pressures and two sacks to go along with two tackles.

Mack only played 41 snaps, 22 less than Quinn, and 10 fewer pass-rushing snaps, but he did end his day with a half-sack more. Mack missed time in the second quarter due to an ankle injury that caused him to go into the locker room. Mack is still expected to be the team’s main defensive playmaker, with Roquan Smith trending right behind him. Smith struggled in pass coverage but lead the team in tackles with nine and was tied for the team lead in snaps with 81.

Mack and the Bear’s defense have played up to par as for what was expected of them, now the offense needs to step up as well with Andy Dalton or Fields.
