Tevin Jenkins Has an Argument For Being Snubbed

Although he missed a few games this season, offensive lineman Tevin Jenkins may have an argument for feeling snubbed from the Pro Bowl. Again, the season started off slow and bad for the Bears. But a lot of these problems slowly began to be ironed out and the Bears became a competitive team, partly because of Jenkins' efforts and contributions to the offensive line.

After missing the first four weeks (all losses) of the season due to injury, Jenkins returned to play 10 of the last 11 games, missing just Christmas Eve against the Cardinals. He has only been called for 3 penalties in that span and has vastly improved from last year in protecting Justin Fields (and Tyson Bagent for a couple games - remember that?). You can attribute the turnaround to the Bears season to his efforts as the Bears have gotten 6 of their 7 wins with him on the field.

It's also worth noting the Jenkins family is winning off the field, too.

Maybe some new dad powers will help him help the Bears get their first win in Green Bay in the last seven tries, and maybe it will lead to him getting an alternate bid to the Pro Bowl with opt-outs imminent.
