3 causes for concern as the Bears face the Jets in Week 12

The Chicago Bears (3-8) will face the New York Jets (6-4) on Sunday, and Chicago is hoping to break a four-game losing streak. However, star quarterback Justin Fields is questionable to play after suffering an injury to his non-throwing shoulder in a frustrating 27-24 loss to Atlanta last week.

New York is in playoff contention, but not without their issues. The Jets have benched their quarterback, Zach Wilson, who was the second overall pick in 2021 and have been without their star running back, Breece Hall, since Week 7.

Chicago’s success is coming from designed runs for Justin Fields. The second-year quarterback’s average rushing attempts increased to 13.3 per game over the last six weeks compared to 8.4 in the first five games.

Fields’ status is in question for Sunday vs. the Jets after suffering a separated left shoulder. Without him, the Bears’ offense could fall back to reality with Trevor Siemian at the helm.

The Jets’ defensive line is elite. Led by Quinnen Williams, the defensive unit ranks sixth in total sacks and seventh in pressures. John Franklin-Myers join Williams on the interior, and the two have combined for 32 quarterback hits and 11.5 sacks. In addition to the Jets’ interior strength, on the edge, Carl Lawson and Jermaine Johnson have contributed 20 quarterback hits and six sacks.

Chicago hasn’t faced a defensive line as good as New York’s, and…
