Remember way back in August , the Bears faced the Bills in a meaningless preseason game? If youíre old enough to remember that far back, the Bears didnít even have Khalil Mack on the roster at that point! Our friends in Buffalo have had a rough go of it so far in 2018. Suffering through some injuries at the QB position, Buffalo has been forced to go back to Nathan Peterman who just canít seem to string together any consistency for the Bills offense. We reached back out again to Buffalo Rumblings for some insight into this game and Corey Giacovelli was kind enough to answer some of my questions. Windy City Gridiron: 1. Letís start with the QB situation. Buffalo hasnít been able to keep a healthy starter this season with Josh Allen hurt and newly signed Derek Anderson going down late Monday night. All cosmic signs keep giving the ball back to Nathan Peterman who likes to give that ball to the other team. What can Bears fans expect of Peterman, how did Allen look in his limited time, and are Bills fans even a little sad about giving away Tyrod Taylor?Buffalo Rumblings: When it comes to Peterman it seems you just have to wait him out. He is capable of making some good throws but with every good throw it seems there are multiple interceptions that come with it. If the Bears secondary is patient then the turnovers will come. When it comes to Allen he showed some glimpses that got fans excited but areas to improve. The injury could be a blessing for him because he can focus on learning how to deal with blitzes and recognizing coverage which is what he has struggled with at times. Fans are a little sad about Tyrod but a change needed to be done, it also helps that he isn;t tearing it up with the Browns.WCG: 2. Okay, with that out of the way, letís focus on the good stuff. The Bills have been very good on defense this year and it has kept them competitive despite a lack of offense. Who on this front 7 does Mitchell Trubisky need to be concerned with when we drops back to pass?BR: The thing about the Bills front seven is that each week it seems a different guy is getting to the quarterback. The main threat is Hughes because of the versatility he has when it comes to rushing the passer. He has the speed to go around the outside but also the strength to bull rush any guy in the league. Depending on the game plan though do not be surprised if one of the linebackers fill up the stat sheet with blitzes.WCG: 3. From what Iíve seen of the Bills Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , the standout player is TreíDavious White, the corner out of LSU. Just how good is this guy and who else in the secondary do we need to know about?BR: White is a lock down corner which has been great for the team this season. Last season, he primarily stayed to one side of the field but no we are seeing him being glued to the teamís number one target. One thing to watch with him however is that he is a physical corner. Against the Texans there were times where his physicality got him in trouble with holding penalties so keep an eye on that. This secondary has big time players but the problem is that they are on the field way too much.WCG: 4. The Bears are double digit favorites in Buffalo and some sites have even pulled the betting line, basically indicating that they fully expect this to be a Bears victory. However, this Bears squad hasnít had a convincing road win this year and theyíre still learning how to win games that they ďshouldĒ win. Whatís the game script the Bills need to write to upset the Bears and win this one?BR: It just comes down to something simple, score points! This offense has struggled all season to put points on the board, even when the defense gives them a short field to work with a field goal isnít even guaranteed. I saw a stat today that the team is second worst in the league with converting third and short situations. IF they are able to stay on the field and keep the defense fresh then they can pull off the upset. WCG: 5. I think itís safe to say the 2018 Bills season is looking like a rebuilding year. What do the Bills need to do next off-season to come back strong with a competitive squad and compete for a division championship in 2019?BR: The team needs to hope that Josh Allen improves going into his sophomore season because then the team can focus on the holes with this team. The defense is there now the task is to put together a better offense line and give him a true number 1 target to throw the ball too. If the Bills can put together an offense that averages about 17-20 points per game, I believe that the defense can carry them to a double digit win season. Thanks again to Corey and Buffalo Rumblings and good luck to the Bills...after Sunday.Football Outsiders on the kind of jump Mitchell Trubisky can make in 2018 A new head coach Authentic Leonard Floyd Jersey , a new offensive coaching staff, three new wide outs, and a new tight end are the big off-season changes for the Chicago Bears on offense. But their 2018 season will be defined by how quarterback Mitchell Trubisky grows in his second year. Head coach Matt Nagy has been paired up with Trubisky, and the hope is they can capture some of the magic that happened in Philadelphia and Los Angeles with their coach and quarterback combos. The Eagles paired up Andy Reid disciple, Doug Pederson, with rookie quarterback Carson Wentz in 2016, and by 2017ís end Wentz was in the MVP discussion before an injury ended his campaign. In 2017, the Rams hired Sean McVay as head coach to work with second year pro Jared Goff Youth Pat O'Donnell Jersey , and the Rams improved their win total by seven games and Goffís passer rating hit triple digits. I think itís a safe to assume that Trubisky will improve on his 77.5 passer rating in Nagyís offensive system, but how much?This is our final topic of discussion with Football Outsidersí Assistant Editor Scott Kacsmar, and hereís the specific question I posed to him. Windy City Gridiron - Many are hoping quarterback Mitchell Trubisky can have a Wentz-like or Goff-like jump in play this year. Do you see that as a realistic scenario?In case you missed the previous four topics we hit on with Scott, you can check them all out right here. What are some Andy Reid tendencies that we might see Matt Nagy bring with him to Chicago?Cody Withehair had a rough year in 2017 after playing superbly as a rookie, do you expect him to bounce back at center this season?Nose tackle Eddie Goldman anchors the middle of the Bearsí D, but is often underappreciated due to the nature of his position.
