Chicago Bears Week 11 Winner No. 3: Chicago Bears Pass Rush

How good was the Chicago Bears pass rush against the Ravens? Robert Quinn finished with 3.5 sacks, Trevis Gipson had a sack, and even Kindle Vildor got in on the action with his first career sack from the secondary. Lots of praise goes to Sean Desai for having a good game plan that was made for Lamar Jackson, but ended up working against Tyler Huntley. They had six sacks and were in the backfield most of the night.

The Ravens were able to counter the Bears pass rush with a steady diet of inside runs and check-downs to create manageable third downs. Unfortunately, the Bears were unable to get to Huntley later in the game and he was able to do enough to get the Ravens in the end-zone.

No matter what the result was, the pass rush showed up all game and the depth at that position showed as well. Missing pieces like Akiem Hicks and Khalil Mack, two of the team’s top three pass rushers, probably meant there would not be a lot of pressure on the opposing quarterback. The pass rush overcame the adversity and played great against a good offense.

Robert Quinn now has 10 sacks in nine games this season after having only two last year. It is amazing how much better he has played this year and has been a top edge player in the league. He looks healthy and is playing with a speed that we have not seen since his days with the Rams.

He was getting around and under Alejandro Villanueva all day yesterday and consistently beating him off the line. He deserves a special mention for his effort against the Ravens and came away with 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble to show for it.

dark. Next. How the Chicago Bears rookies performed before the bye week

The Chicago Bears have lost five games in a row and it has not been pretty. With questions about the quarterback situation and lots of injuries, who knows what will happen going forward. Performances like the ones mentioned in the winners’ list for this week will be much needed from the other positions to keep the Bears from falling out into a collapse.
