The Chicago Bears have had some key players step up in big ways this year, form all over the field in all different positions. It seems like when one area struggles, the other side helps them until they get going.
When the offense struggles to put up points, like they did against Detroit, the defense keeps them in games and makes it possible to win games putting up just 13 points.
The Bears have stepped up their game in all different parts of the team, and that has all come together for a 5-1 record, and sole possession of first place in the NFC North. The Bears still have to play the likes of Minnesota, San Francisco and Green Bay, but, so far this season, the Bears have gotten the job done game in and game out.
There are a lot of players who have stepped up this season and deserve credit, but there are a select few that have really shown themselves as the most improved...and others who have not.
