The Chicago Bears will host the Los Angeles Chargers in an inter-conference battle Sunday afternoon from Soldier Field. The Chargers could not secure the win in a tough 23-20 road loss to the Titans last week. The Bears are coming off an ugly 36-25 home loss to the Saints last week to fall to 3-3 on the season. This marks the first meeting between these two sides since 2015 in a game the Bears won 22-19.
The Los Angeles Chargers were expected to be a force in the AFC and so far their season has been a major disappointment. The Chargers have lost three straight games to plummet into last place in the AFC West with a 2-5 record on the season. L.A. could not score a touchdown with a first and goal opportunity with under a minute remaining in their 23-20 road loss to the Titans. Philip Rivers played well last week, but overall he is having an inconsistent season. The veteran QB has tossed four interceptions in his last three games, and he has collected 2114 passing yards with an 11:6 TD to INT ratio.
Melvin Gordon has struggled since returning from a lengthy contract holdout. The 26-year old RB has only tallied 81 rushing yards in three games played on the season, and they will need more production from him going forward. Chargers’ #1 receiver Keenan Allen has cooled down recently, although he still has 564 receiving yards on the year.
Los Angeles has battled key injuries to their defense all season. They are still performing well which is a reflection of their depth. L.A. had trouble defending the pass last week, although their pass defense ranks fifth in the NFL. The Chargers are scoring an average of 20 points on the season, ranking them 24th overall. They are conceding an average of 20.1 points, placing them 10th in the NFL. L.A. is 1-2 on the road.
The Chicago Bears have dropped to 3-3 after posting a 3-1 start to the season. The Bears offense has been a glaring issue this season. They are coming off a 36-25 home loss to the Saints last week in which the offense was booed by the Soldier Field crowd. Mitchell Trubisky made his return after missing two games and he struggled for most of the game. Trubisky finished with 251 yards for an average of only 4.6 yards per reception. He picked up most of those passing yards in the fourth quarter when the game was already out of reach. The 25-year old QB is having trouble leading the Bears offense, recording 839 passing yards with a 5:2 TD to INT ratio.
The Bears’ rushing offense also continues to stumble. Rookie David Montgomery leads the way with only 231 rushing yards on the season. Allen Robinson II has been one of the few bright spots on offense. The 26-year old WR tallied another 97 receiving yards last week, and he has accrued a total of 464 receiving yards. The Bears offense needs to find answers quick.
The Chicago defense is coming off their worst performance of the season after surrendering 424 total yards to the Saints. The Bears struggled against the run last week, although they still rank 11th in the NFL in rush yards allowed per game. Chicago is currently averaging 18.7 points, placing them down at 26th in the NFL. They are holding opponents to 17.5 points, positioning them fifth overall. The Bears stand at 1-2 at Soldier Field.
The Chargers’ rushing offense is underachieving right now. They only managed 39 rushing yards on 19 attempts against the Titans last week, and 32 yards against the Steelers in the prior week. Chargers #1 RB Melvin Gordon sat out the first four games due to a contract dispute and he has looked rusty in his three games since his return. The 26-year old has only amassed a combined 81 rushing yards on an average of only 2.3 yards per attempt. Gordon is a talented RB and he should return to his previous form at some point this season after posting 885 rushing yards in 12 games in 2018.
“I didn’t get the job done. The one thing I hate most yesterday is I let you all see me sweat and show emotion out there,” he said. “We’re in a position where every game counts.” -Melvin Gordon after last week’s loss. (source: Associated Press)
Austin Ekeler has seen a drop in his rush attempts since Gordon’s return. Ekeler has only attempted 13 rushes in his last three games, and he currently has a season total of 248 rushing yards. He remains a useful weapon through screen passes and as a wide receiver. Chargers #3 RB Justin Jackson can also be a threat. He has 142 rushing yards on an average of 7.9 yards per attempt. He is dealing with a calf injury and is questionable for this game.
