4. In a rare twist, the Bears are not forcing many turnovers in 2020
Takeaways have long been a mainstay to accompany a stout Chicago Bears defense. Not only do they gobble ball-carriers, but they also find methods to take the ball from their hands. Indeed, Chicago is normally a standout in the turnover differential metric.
Oddly, though, the Bears are not yet netting the takeaways, a penchant that formulates their opportunistic reputation. The team forces just one turnover per game, which ranks 25th in the NFL. Not long ago — 2018, for instance — the Bears led the NFL in turnovers forced.
For Vikings enthusiasts, this is exciting. Turnovers will normally doom a Vikings game, unless the purple and gold find a way to force some of their own. Kirk Cousins struggled early on with throwing interceptions but has since nipped that in the bud, if only for two straight games. It is not out of the realm of possibility that he throws one or two in Week 10, but so far, the Bears have not been turnover mongers.
