The Carolina Panthers host the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Bank of America Stadium.
As the Chicago Bears travel to Bank of America Stadium on Sunday in NFL Week 6 to face the Carolina Panthers, there are playoff implications on the line. That’s not something many people expected when each team began the 2020 season but, as things have played out through the first five weeks, that’s where things undeniably stand.
Nick Foles hasn’t exactly made the Bears a world-beater. However, he has given the Chicago offense a bit more stability than you saw under Mitchell Trubisky. But this team is still predicated on the success of their defense as Khalil Mack has returned to form and the rest of that unit is hitting its stride.
That defense will be put to the test on Sunday in Week 6, though. Teddy Bridgewater, Mike Davis, Robby Anderson and the Panthers offense have been clicking at an extremely high rate. The defense has some issues that could be exploited but, with a 3-2 start to the year, Carolina has proven they can compete.
How to watch Bears vs. Panthers in NFL Week 6
For all intents and purposes, no one expected the Bears and Panthers to be in the position their in as they come into this NFL Week 6 matchup. But now that they are, it only adds more intrigue to the game from Charlotte.
Should Carolina win, they would have to start thinking about a potential shot of winning the loaded NFC South. Similarly, Chicago would have to keep thinking about their NFC North chances with another victory. Subsequently, this is a huge contest on Sunday.
