6. Did Jaquan Brisker prove that he is now healthy for the Chicago Bears?
There is no way to deny the performance of Jaquan Brisker on Sunday. We had just wondered if injuries were catching up to him this year because his first six games were not close to anything he displayed last year. Then, on Sunday, we saw vintage Jaquan Brisker. Brisker had 11 tackles, and seven were deemed stops, per PFF.
Brisker also gave up four catches but just 13 yards in total. It was easily the best game we had seen from him. He left the first few games with an injury and was close to missing the Commanders game. Still, it looked like he was playing through something in that game, and he struggled against the Vikings as well. Sunday was a different player. It may be the first time we saw him healthy for a game from start to finish this year. If this play continues, the second-year jump is still in play.
