Chicago Bears Key No. 3: Stay aggressive on 4th down

We have seen the Bears be ultra-aggressive on fourth down especially at the start of the year, and this needs to be a focal point on Sunday. It is not possible to beat Aaron Rodgers with 30-yard field goals, and by punting at midfield. We have already seen the Packers win a game this year in San Francisco because the other team was too conservative on fourth down.

If you have been a fan of the Bears for long enough I’m sure you remember the famous 17 point lead that the Bears blew in 2018. Well, you might not remember but the Bears were faced with a fourth and one at the Green Bay 15 and decided to kick a field goal to go up 6 with 2:40 on the clock.

To no surprise the Bears decision of playing 60 minutes of hard-fought, good football would come to waste because when faced with one yard to go to potentially win the game, they were too scared and decided to give the ball right back to Aaron Rodgers, which we have seen way too often, never go well.

Next. 5 teams that should trade for Allen Robinson. dark

Ultimately I do not want to see any field goals between 20 and 30 yards or any mid-field punts when faced with fourth and less than five. Because in order to take down the king you cannot afford to take any half measures.
