2. The Chicago Bears are hoping to find building blocks on the offensive line 

The Chicago Bears' offensive line has been similar to the secondary. Healthy has not been on their side. However, it is starting to look like things are shaping up. 

Darnell Wright is a rookie but appears to be a gem with a bright future ahead. Teven Jenkins missed the first four weeks of the season, but since he has returned, he has ignited the run blocking on this team. 

Braxton Jones was out since week two with a neck injury. He returned in week nine and played a full game in week 10. Now, he can rest and play his best football in week 11. Even better than that, Nate Davis practiced this week. 

Davis had a personal issue hold him out of most of the off-season work. He was rusty and injured early on, and after a strong performance in week five, an injury has held him up since. If they get him back, and they have Jenkins, Jones, and Wright playing their best down the stretch, the unit actually looks okay on paper. 

At center, Cody Whitehair is not the answer, but he is better than Lucas Patrick. The Bears will take that small upgrade. 

This goes back to there still being time for Justin Fields to make noise and save his job. He may finally have an offensive line that either helps him get to what we thought he could be or it exposes the reality that the Bears have to move on.
