1. The Chicago Bears play-caller must improve after the bye
If you recall, the Chicago Bears played some of their best football on offense last year after Luke Getsy had extra time to prepare. A mini-bye leading into Monday Night Football ignited the offense, and another bye also led to success.
After one Thursday game this year, the Chicago Bears lost Justin Fields due to an injury. After their second Thursday game, he returned from an injury, and it was the best the offense has ever looked. So, what does the play-caller have in store after the bye week? He gets that same Detroit defense, and his offense should be rested and better than the first time these two teams met.
Getsy is coaching to win over the fan base and the front office, who are up in the air on this entire coaching staff. Coming out of the bye with a strong response would be impressive.
