Ravens vs Bears
There was a ton of hope going into last week for the Chicago Bears. That’s because rookie No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky made his first start. It was ultimately a losing effort, but it’s hard to not be impressed and optimistic. Now the youngster will look to progress in his second start as they travel to take on the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season.
Trubisky is obviously the hope for the Bears. However, they’re up against it in terms of injuries. Their defense, arguably their biggest strength, is depleted at the moment. With that said, they’ll need the offense to be clicking. Not only does that put a spotlight on Chicago’s rookie signal-caller, but on Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard. The running backs will need to help shoulder the load on Sunday afternoon.
As for the Ravens, their offense appears to be in shambles right now. Joe Flacco is struggling, the running game is mediocre at best and most of that stems from the loss of Marshal Yanda on the offensive line — that, and a lack of talent at skill positions. As such, they’ll rely on their stout defense to keep carrying them.
Details for Sunday’s game are below:
While the Ravens are still in the hunt in the AFC North, the Bears are almost already out of it. However, what they want to see is Trubisky continue to grow and see what other pieces they have for the future. As such, this game should be quite intriguing.
