Sitting at 1-4, the Chicago Bears season is not lost, but this is a huge game if the team wants to make any noise for the rest of the year. The Minnesota Vikings have the same record, so at the very least, the Bears could solidify that they are out of the cellar in the division. What are some of the big questions that we need to see answered when the Chicago Bears host the Minnesota Vikings?
10. Is the Chicago Bears interior offensive line finally in a good spot?
The Chicago Bears were finally able to see what they wanted their interior offensive line to look like against the Commanders. Teven Jenkins was back and healthy, and while he did not start, an injury thrust him into play. Nate Davis was also back, and in his second weekend after missing time in a personal manner, the team is starting to see the benefits of why they signed him.
The injury to Lucas Patrick is obviously unfortunate, but it did put Cody Whitehair back at center, where he was expected to play all summer. So, with Davis and Jenkins at their best and an arguable upgrade at center, this is the best the Bears line will look.
They happen to play an interior group that is not threatening. Jonathan Bullard, Harrison Phillips, and Dean Lowry make up the starting interior defensive line group. If the Bears had success against Jonathan Allen and Da'Ron Payne, they should run these guys over, right?
