Chicago Bears (0-1) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0): Game kickoff, keys, matchups, injury report, prediction, and pick. - From UPI.com
Offensively, the Bears are preparing to face a group coached by their old antagonist, Jim Schwartz.
Running at the gap between defensive tackle and the wide-9 or split defensive end is the best approach, and it plays to the Bears' strength with a power-O type of run that uses Josh Sitton pulling to provide an extra punch on the right side with Bobby Massie and Kyle Long.
Defensively, the Bears have to be ready for an attack using West Coast elements, chiefly quick throws and ones that likely will try to hurt them throwing to the backs to attack the edges.
The Bears have to attack with caution and the blitz is something they'll only be able to do in obvious passing situations.
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Eagles CB Jalen Mills, a rookie seventh-rounder, is expected to get a lot of playing time Monday night with Leodis McKelvin sidelined with a hamstring injury.
