Chicago Bears: Week 4 offensive, defensive, special teams and rookie MVPs

Chicago Bears Special Teams MVP: Pat O’Donnell and Cairo Santos
The Bears were able to move the ball well on offense, which was certainly a good thing, but it did make it a bit more difficult to select a special teams MVP for the week. Pat O’Donnell and Cairo Santos continue to do their jobs when they are called on, and I think that’s enough to warrant the award.
O’Donnell had three punts for an average of 53.0 and a long of 60. O’Donnell came into the game with the third-highest yards per punt in the entire league with 50.2, and it looks like he is continuing to add to that career-best.
Cairo Santos has become so reliable we are almost becoming numb to it. Santos made all three of his extra points, as well as a 33-yard field goal. None of his kicks really caught the eye, but it’s still important to recognize one of the most consistent kickers in the league right now. The Bears’ issues as the kicker position after Robbie Gould proved to be very consequential, and it’s exactly why no fan should be taking what Santos is doing for granted.
