The Chicago Bears are 4-1 after their first five games this season, and share a lead of first place in the NFC North. They have played above and beyond expectations in certain areas so far, and have blown out opponents in their last two games entering the bye week.
The Bears haven't had the easiest schedule so far, but they most certainly haven't had the hardest as well. The Bears well definitely have a harder schedule when they get back from their bye week, facing opponents such as San Francisco, Houston, two games against Minnesota, and a grudge match against Green Bay (the team that handed the Bears their only loss so far).
Yes, Chicago looks like a top-tier NFL team so far this season, and they certainly have had their elite moments.
However, there is always room for improvement, and there are five key things the Chicago Bears must do during their bye week to get better as a team and become more threatening to other teams going down the stretch.
