What are five factors that could lead to a Chicago Bears Super Bowl run during the 2020 NFL season?
The Chicago Bears are truly at a crossroads when examining the 2020 NFL season. On paper, the Bears appear to be loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. However, in reality, the Bears have a lot that will need to go right, mainly on the offensive side of the ball in order for the team to get back to the playoffs and hopefully make a Super Bowl run.
Unlike last offseason, where the Bears were in Super Bowl conversation, this offseason has been different. Some don’t even think that the Bears are a surefire playoff team, let alone a Super Bowl contender.
Here’s what it comes down to: The Bears believe they’ve improved this offseason. Positions such as tight end, offensive line, and quarterback that were all issues for the Bears in 2019 will look to improve with either new players or better coaching.

Three new starters in Robert Quinn, Tashaun Gipson, and whoever starts opposite Kyle Fuller will need some time to get adjusted, especially with a new scheme. However, as the Bears enter year two under defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, the goal will be to be one of the NFL’s best defenses once again.
As the 2020 season gets closer, what are five factors that could make or break a Bears Super Bowl run in 2020? From quarterback play to a healthy defense, let’s go ahead and find out.
