The Chicago Bears’ loss to the Cleveland Browns was beyond embarrassing. One of the worst starts a rookie could ever have happened under the watch of Matt Nagy. However, one good thing about the NFL is that no week is ever the same. The ebbs and flows and ups and downs give plenty of chances for redemption and bounce backs.

In the case of the Bears, they are set up for the perfect bounceback. From a Cleveland Browns team ascending in significant ways to the Detroit Lions team that hopes to be the Browns in a few years, the level of competition is certainly going to drop from Fields first start to his second.

With that in mind, here are five players who should be expected to get back into the swing of things this week.

5. Allen Robinson

Not many wide receivers in the NFL have been more disappointing than Allen Robinson through three weeks. In a big contract year, this is not what Robinson wanted. However, there are some reasons for his issues.

Still, the game featured him catching passes from multiple quarterbacks. In week one, he was followed by Jalen Ramsey. In week two, he caught a touchdown and almost caught two, if not for a drop. Then, in week three, he was shadowed by Denzel Ward, another elite corner.

This week is much different as Robinson is expected to draw A.J. Parker often. If fans do not know of Parker, it is because he was a UDFA from Kansas State. Essentially he is similar to Duke Shelley.

Robinson will have the same quarterback throughout the game and face the worst corners he has faced all year. This is make or break time for Allen Robinson.
