3. Chicago Bears tackles

Nobody is saying the Chicago Bears tackles will be a strength. They could be the most significant issue on the roster. Still, it is not every week you have to face off against Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney. Garrett is one of the best in the league right now, and Clowney is a former top pick excelling across from someone more athletic than him.

The duo is as scary as you will see all year. The Detroit Lions are bringing Romeo Okwara and Charles Harris as their edge duo. Okwara has his moments, but Harris has been a cast-off after struggling with Miami.

So, the Bears tackles go from elite to one of the lower-end groups. Beyond that, going from Andy Dalton to Justin Fields is a quick transition. Fields takes deeper drops and is more prone to scramble. Combining the tackles having to change their sets with the duo across from them was asking for disaster. After a game of blocking for Fields, the duo should be more comfortable and have an easier matchup.
