1. Will the Chicago Bears be able to hit Cole Kmet?
Cole Kmet is the Chicago Bears' second-best pass catcher. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints are one of the best in the NFL when it comes to defending the tight end. They rank third least in catches and yards allowed. So, will the Chicago Bears have any success?
Some of it comes down to the opponents they have played. The Titans, Panthers, Bucs, Patriots, and Colts did not feature tight ends. Dalton Schultz had four catches for 61 yards against New Orleans, Evan Engram had five catches for 45 yards, and Luke Musgrave had six catches for 49 yards. Some, they can be beatable.
Still, the Saints also have a roster that makes them solid against the tight end. Demario Douglas does not seem to age, and neither does Tyrann Mathieu. Combined, they defend the middle of the field and take on tight ends in coverage. So, it will take an impressive performance by Cole Kmet to pick up 50 yards. Is he ready for it, or is he just another decent tight end who cannot perform against the Saints?
