Winners of two-straight and having gone 5-4 in their last nine games, things aren't looking as grim for these Chicago Bears.

Not necessarily out of the postseason picture just yet and hanging onto a threat of hope, their next step is to take out the Cleveland Browns this weekend who will be led by veteran Joe Flacco at quarterback.

Matt Eberflus and company have gained some praise lately, but this is a game that could see it all wiped away in a hurry if things go bad. For the Bears to come out with a win, there are four individuals who have to be at their best.

1. Darnell Wright, OT

We are going to talk more about this later on, but back in Justin Fields' first NFL start, he was sacked 4.5 times by Myles Garrett.

That's who rookie offensive tackle Darnell Wright will be facing on Sunday. Even for a first-round rookie, Garrett is maybe the tallest task you could ask for. He certainly has the chance at being this year's NFL Defensive Player of the Year and is a one-man wrecking crew. Garrett might be the most disruptive edge rusher in all of football over the last couple of seasons.

Wright has had some bright moments this year, as well as some learning moments. But, most recently against the Lions, Wright played superb football when going up against Aidan Hutchinson.

Wright will be under serious pressure to perform up to his draft pedigree for a second-straight week. Will he be able to handle it?
