There is one clear matchup advantage that the Chicago Bears have in this game. The Bears have one of the best-rushing offenses in the NFL, and the Panthers have one of the worst-rushing defenses in the NFL. The Bears have a success rate of 43.8% when they run the ball, which is sixth-best in the NFL.

The Carolina Panthers have a success rate allowed of 45.7%, which is easily the worst in the NFL. The next closest is at 44.8%, and then the team after that is the Las Vegas Raiders at 44.7%. We saw how the Chicago Bears were able to manage to get the ground game going against Las Vegas; who is to say that the same will not happen against Carolina?

This sets up well for Foreman, who has commanded the majority of the carries since Khalil Herbert ended up on the IR. Foreman has 60 carries for 271 yards since Herbert has been out. If he continues to run like this against the Panthers, he will easily go over 100 yards on Thursday Night Football.
