Chicago Bears

Rams (11-1) vs. Bears (8-4) Preview

The Rams and Bears meet in Chicago tonight, with one of the league’s best offenses squaring off against one of the best defenses. It’s tough to say who has the advantage on this side of the ball. Perhaps Todd Gurley will be x-factor to watch. How much will the Rams align him in the slot or on the perimeter to create mismatches against Bears linebackers? How will the Bears handle the Rams running the ball out of “11 personnel” (1 RB, 1 TE, 3 WRs) against smaller defenders?

The other side of the ball might be where the game is decided, though. The Bears have the advantage if they can neutralize Aaron Donald. Easier said than done, we know. But the Rams have been susceptible to the big play on defense this year, and Matt Nagy has done a good job of setting quarterback Mitch Trubisky up to create some of those big plays.
