6. Can Cole Kmet shake free from Kamren Curl?

The Washington Commanders have holes in their secondary. It will set up for a big game for D.J. Moore, but the Bears need someone else to make a play. They have used Cole Kmet as their second receiver in most scenarios, but this week, he is a tougher spot.

The Washington Commanders often deploy Kamre Curl as their tight-end defender. So far this year, there have not been many tight ends with success against Washington. Denver and Arizona do not have big names, but neither Dawson Knox nor Dalton Kincaid were seen when Washington played the Bills, and Dallas Goedert was held in check.

To be fair, Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis, along with A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith, were more than enough to dominate the Commanders. Still, the tight end was held in check. For the Bears, Moore can have a big game, then who? They need one of Darnell Mooney or Equainemous St. Brown to step. Why not try to throw it deep to Tyler Scott once? That is what the Bears need.
