2. Will Raiders LT Kolton Miller shut down the Chicago Bears highest-paid pass rusher?

Yannick Ngakoue is supposed to be the Chicago Bears' best pass rusher. Right now, he is behind DeMarcus Walker in pressures and pass rush win rate. Ngakoue has two sacks, and Walker has 1.5. The sacks Ngakoue recorded have not been impactful; he missed a couple of chances to bring down Baker Mayfield in the backfield, and he had his worst game of the season going against Christian Darrisaw last week.

Now, he gets Kolton Miller, who rivals Darrisaw as one of the best left tackles in the NFL. It could be another long day for Ngakoue. Miller is so long and athletic that he does not lose often, but when he does, it is not the body type that Ngakoue has. The best bet, Ngakoue, is to use his bend and try to get underneath him.

Can Ngakoue get back on track against a tough foe, or will we see a lot of the same old when he takes on a talented left tackle?
