The Chicago Bears offensive line needs to have a complete game

The Chicago Bears offensive line did a great job of protection in the second half of their game against the Niners. Fields only completed 8 of 17 passes for 121 yards. Of course, the bad weather had a big impact on that.

What is more important is that Fields went 3-of-9 for 19 yards in the first half. That means he went 5-of-8 for 102 yards and 2 touchdowns in the second half.

As mentioned earlier, the first half was a mess for the offense. The Bears had a total of 68 total yards in the first half.

Left tackle Braxton Jones faced one of the top pass rushers in the league in Nick Bosa. Bosa gave Jones a lesson on how much better the NFL players are compared to college. To Jones’ credit, however, he learned quickly. He adjusted and took what happened in the first half and he slowed Bosa down. The line in general did a great job in the second half. After giving up two sacks in the first half, they did not allow any in the second half.

We need the line to have a complete game. The Packers have the ability to score points in bunches. In order for the Bears to keep up, they need the line to play well. If that happens, Fields will be able to have a better game and score to keep things close. If it is close late, anything can happen and the Bears can really impress people around the league.
