Chicago Bears Key No.1: Pound the rock

If the Bears want any chance of winning on Sunday they need to run Khalil Herbert and David Montgomery till the wheels fall off, I want at least 15 carries for each of them. The Bears’ rushing attack is their best type of offense as they lead the league in rushing yards per game at more than 180 yards per game.

Not to mention, the Bears’ offense looks to have struck gold with the designed QB runs that they utilized against New England. Designed quarterback runs that apparently, Bill Belichick seemed to not have an answer for.

This rushing attack is a good matchup as, despite this Dallas defense being one of the league’s best, they are exploitable on the ground as they are allowing the 17th most yards per rush. Although this doesn’t mean their run defense is awful, it’s quite the falloff from their dominant pass rush and pass defense.
