GET THOSE TIGHT ENDS GOING
Chicago gave up an 88-yard touchdown pass to Falcons tight end Austin Hooper last week, along with a 40-yard catch, thanks to coverage breakdowns that left him wide open.
Cameron Brate’s career high in catches (seven) came in last year’s Bears game — on seven targets, no less — and his 84 yards that day for the Bucs were two shy of his career high as well. Add rookie O.J. Howard making his NFL debut and the Bears being without linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who had 10 tackles last week but tore a pectoral muscle and is out, and you could see Jameis Winston having a good day throwing to tight ends.
