1. What can the Chicago Bears do at safety?

One of the reasons the Los Angeles Chargers moved the ball so well was because they were attacking Tyrique Stevenson. However, some of it comes down to the fact that the Bears are onto the backup safety at both spots. The Bears have been without Eddie Jackson, and this week, an illness brought Jaquan Brisker down for the week. You could feel the difference.

Elijah Hicks has been a disappointment all season with missed tackles and coverage assignments. The team signed Duron Harmon a couple of weeks ago, and now they are asking him to start. The secondary was healthier for about a game. Even if the cornerbacks play better, they are going to be shorthanded. They should get Brisker back this week. Can they see anything out of Jackson soon?

This is going to hold back anything we can see from this defense.
