3. Pressure Daniel Jones, and reap the rewards

One of the most unbelievable stats through three weeks is Pro Football Focus having Daniel Jones being pressured on 51.7 percent of his drop-backs this year. That number is absolutely astounding. That means, more often than not, Jones is unable to get a pass off even somewhat comfortably.

Fortunately for Chicago, they currently rank fourth in the NFL in pressure percentage. The Bears defense is pressuring quarterbacks at a rate of 33.3 percent. The Bears also lead the league in quarterback hurry percentage at 22.9 percent.

They are getting to the quarterback so far, this year. Robert Quinn, Trevis Gipson and company are doing their job.

Daniel Jones is one of the most turnover-prone quarterbacks in the league, too, so this game could get ugly for the Giants if Chicago gets to him. Now, of course, the same could be said about Fields early on, so this game could take some swings throughout the afternoon.

The Bears’ strength, on defense, lies within their ability to pressure the quarterback and force errant throws. If they can do that regularly against Jones and the New York offense, then they have a great chance at winning this game.
