Can the Bears defense force turnovers?

After putting a lot of pressure on the San Francisco backfield and forcing two turnovers, the Chicago Bears defense forced one against the Packers. Sure, they put pressure on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, sacking him three times. However, Rodgers was his stellar self by sidestepping the pressure and finding the open man.

After struggling in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, Rodgers completed 76 percent of his passes against the Bears. He did not have any touchdown passes in Week1 but had 2 in Week 2. He had a 131.1 passer rating against Chicago.

The defense won’t have to deal with a great quarterback like Rodgers this week. They go up against Davis Mills. Mills is in his second season and has shown flashes of being a pretty good quarterback.

The thing is he is not there yet. The Bears have to take advantage of his inexperience. If the front seven put a lot of pressure on him, he is sure to make some mistakes. If that happens, the defense has to take advantage. There can be no near-misses. If Mills throws a duck around the secondary, the corners or the safeties have to go out and make the interception.

Hopefully, the Bears get themselves a few turnovers and put the offense in good field position. Better yet, how about the defense helps out the offense by scoring some points themselves?
