Chicago’s pass offense is terrible
Only one team in the NFL has gained fewer yards this season than the Chicago Bears. Their passing attack is atrocious by only gaining 176.5 yards per game (32nd) through the air and have only tossed 12 touchdowns (30th) through Week 14.
That’s not to say that Chicago isn’t getting better as a passing squad. However, the Bears will be frustrated by the NFL’s sack leaders and make throwing the football even more of a challenge on Monday night. Plus, the Bears throw the third-most interceptions on the season, throwing 16 to this point.
Their inability to move the ball through the air makes them a one-dimensional team that needs to have success on the ground in order to get wins. If Minnesota focuses on stopping the run, they can win this game.
Minnesota needs to keep between the Chicago ball carrier and the end zone, making stops when needed while making sure to fill the gaps on the line.
