3. The Chicago Bears have to run behind the right side

The Chicago Bears come into the game against the Panthers with one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL. They rank sixth in success rate this season, and it has only improved with the health of Teven Jenkins. Jenkins moved to right guard when Nate Davis went down with an injury. Since then, the Bears have been rolling teams over on the right side. The combination of Jenkins and Darnell Wright is a lot of mass plowing over linemen.

Now, they get the worst run defense in the NFL. What hurts for Carolina is that they are the worst in success rate allowed but have not played great rushing teams. Minnesota, New Orleans, and Seattle are all rated from 16-19, and Atlanta, Houston, and Indianapolis are bottom ten. They have faced two units that rank in the top 12 in success rate. Detroit scored 42 points, and David Montgomery had 19 rushes for 109 yards, while Craig Reynolds had seven rushes for 52 yards.

Then, Miami scored 42 as well, with Raheem Mostert going for 115 yards. It is easy to run on this defense, and Jenkins and Wright feature one of the best run-blocking duos. Make it simple and ride those two to over 100 yards.
