Everything to know heading into Bears’ Week 12 game vs. Jets

The Chicago Bears (3-8) will face the New York Jets (6-4) on Sunday, where Chicago is looking to snap their four-game losing streak.

The Bears are coming off a 27-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, where quarterback Justin Fields suffered a left shoulder injury. He’s officially a game-time decision for this Week 12 contest, which means we’ll most likely see Trevor Siemian in his place.

Here’s a rundown of what we know heading into Sunday’s game against the Jets:

Storyline to watch: A game (most likely) without Justin Fields

The Bears offense since Week 6 is unrecognizable. Chicago averaged 274 yards and 17.2 points per game through the first five weeks. Over the last six weeks, the offense improved to 369 yards and 25.8 points per game.

Chicago’s success is coming from designed runs for Justin Fields. However, the offense will look completely different if the Bears are without their second-year quarterback and relying on Trevor Siemian.

Don’t be surprised if the former Northwestern quarterback looks good on Sunday. The current Bears offense caters to his strengths. Siemian is a great quarterback when throwing the ball short, in the middle of the field, and outside. However, he isn’t a dual threat as a quarterback and could be better at throwing deep passes.

During his time in Denver, his two favorite targets were Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. This could mean a big day for Chase Claypool and Darnell Mooney but a quiet day for Cole Kmet. — Nate Atkins
