Bears top 400 yards of offense

I will touch on this a little later, but I want to start this segment by saying that the Packers will be down two linebackers in Week 1 while also bringing in a pair of rookie corners that should see the field plenty this season. Green Bay’s defense ranked just 22nd overall in 2017 and facing a Bears offense that ranked 31st in offensive plays from scrimmage a year ago would certainly boost their egos a bit.

Here’s the thing: These Bears are much, much different than they were a year ago.

The Packers’ linebackers will have zero answer for Trey Burton at tight end — nor will they be able to stop Jordan Howard from breaking a few runs. That’s just the beginning.

Green Bay has nobody on the field with the speed to match up against both Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller, and neither are even the top dog for the Bears. Yeah, let’s talk about Allen Robinson a little bit too — the guy with one of the NFL’s top catch radius’.

I boldly predict that the Bears soar over 400 yards of total offense in this one, and it shouldn’t be all that difficult. The Bears will rush for anywhere from 120-to-160 yards and Trubisky will get himself a solid 250 yards passing, minimum.

The Bears will score points Sunday night. Don’t you worry.
