Chicago Bears defense holds running back Bijan Robinson and tight end Kyle Pitts held to under 100 yards.

It's no secret that Falcons head coach Arthur Smith has been criticized for his usage of Robinson and Pitts.

While Smith proved to be an impressive offensive coach during his time with the Tennessee Titans, he's struggled to get the ball to his best playmakers in Atlanta. Anyone who has watched the game film knows that the talent is there, but the touches aren't.

Both Robinson and Pitts have gone through inconsistent stretches this season thanks to their snap percentage and the Falcons questionable play-calling.

No one knows why Smith isn't getting the ball to Robinson and Pitts. Does Smith have a beef with them? Does he want to get everyone involved in the offense? Does he have certain formations for different players?

Whatever the answer is to the conundrum that is the Atlanta Falcons offense, the Bears defense isn't worried about it. They should be able to capitalize on their struggles on offense by holding both Robinson and Pitts to under 100 total scrimmage yards.

This bold prediction could easily happen depending on what Smith's gameplan is heading into this matchup.
