4 keys to a Bears victory over the Buccaneers in Week 2

The Chicago Bears’ 2023 season got off to the worst possible start with a loss to the Packers in Week 1, but that’s over now. We’re on to Week 2, when the Bears will travel to Tampa Bay to take on the 1-0 Buccaneers.

The Bucs kicked the season off with a narrow 20-17 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Though they recently hoisted a Lombardi trophy, that team is long gone. Tom Brady is retired, and starting in his place is veteran journeyman Baker Mayfield. Their stout defense has holes to take advantage of, and what was once a rock-solid offensive line is now near the bottom of the league. Yet they still have an excellent receiving corps and an experienced coaching staff.

Week 2 is a tough game for the Bears, but still a winnable one.

Let’s consider what they must do to leave Tampa with a win and, hopefully, some momentum.
