Chicago Bears center

Lucas Patrick: 269 snaps

Dan Feeney: 2 snaps

Primary matchups: TJ Slaton, Kenny Clark, Greg Gaines, Vita Vea, Derrick Nnadi, DJ Jones

From the moment he signed with the Chicago Bears nothing has gone well for Lucas Patrick. He has failed to stay healthy, and when he has been on the field, he has been a disaster. He started his season against Kenny Clark and Vita Vea back-to-back. That is not an easy way to start your season. Derrick Nnadi played well against him in the Kansas City game, and you can argue his play against Denver was some of the worst of his career. He was about to get benched with the return of Teven Jenkins, but an injury sped up that process.

Lucas Patrick Grade: F

Cody Whitehair: 42 snaps

Primary matchup: John Ridgeway

We are not saying that Cody Whitehair came out and changed everything with this performance, but the duo of Whitehair and Jenkins looked so much better than what Whitehair and Patrick were putting together. This should be how the line looks moving forward.

Cody Whitehair Grade: C
