The Chicago Bears don't get the luxury of an easy start this year.

Where last year the Bears opened with Detroit and Dallas before facing Green Bay in Week 3, this season they must walk through the Falcons and Saints before another Week 3 meeting with the Pack.

That makes the Bears' Week 1 confrontation with Atlanta even more important.

The Bears can hardly afford a weak start. They won the battle in 2010, bringing the division crown home to Chicago for the third time in Lovie Smith's coaching tenure. But they lost the war, losing the NFC Championship Game to the eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.

Winning the division will be a daunting task—and it all starts on Sunday in Atlanta.

In order for the Bears to start down the path of success, certain players will have to step up their games. Football is a team sport, but there are players that the Bears need to give their top performances this Sunday to begin the season with a win.

So, let's jump forward and take a look at six Bears who will have to step up against the Atlanta Falcons.
