5 Chicago Bears who must step up to beat Washington Commanders
1. Chicago Bears S Eddie Jackson
With six interceptions only Matt Ryan and Mattew Stafford have given the football away more than Carson Wentz. With 10 turnover-worthy plays, he is tied for second and behind only Ryan in this area.
Wentz is going to throw it up for grabs, it is what he does. At times, it can pay off, as Dyami Brown caught two bombs for touchdowns, which was the bulk of their scoring last week. Still, the Commanders are 1-4 because when the bombs do not hit, the offense stalls.
So, this is a big game for the Chicago Bears safety, who appears to be back. Jackson is tied for second in the NFL in interceptions this season.
So, what should happen when you have the player who throws the second most interceptions taking on a player who picks the ball off the second most? The Chicago Bears could really benefit from a big turnover, and Eddie Jackson could be the player who provides that.
