2. Robert Quinn leads the Chicago Bears in sacks

If I gave every Chicago Bears fan a choice to pick two players to lead the team in sacks, almost all would immediately scream Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks. Heck, some may even say that the ferocious blitzed Roquan Smith will lead the team in sacks before Robert Quinn, who was downright bad in 2020.

However, Quinn was injured, and 2020 was a bad year for many. Quinn proved all doubters wrong by rebounding and showing Chicago Bears fans why the team gave him so much money in free agency.

Khalil Mack is still good but is losing his flare as an elite defender. Beyond that, the Bears move him around to help others. Others include Robert Quinn, who picked up a sack thanks to Mack shooting inside and clearing a path. Still, with Mack doing dirty work and Akiem Hicks banged up, Robert Quinn could certainly finish the season as the team’s sacks leader.
