LAKE FOREST Akiem Hicks Color Rush Jersey , Ill. (AP) — Tom Brady has five Super Bowl championships, three NFL MVP awards and more victories than any quarterback in a career spanning nearly two decades.One thing he doesn’t have: a loss to the Bears. Not that he wants one.Brady looks to remain unbeaten against them when the New England Patriots visit Chicago on Sunday.The Bears are 0-4 and one of five teams never to beat him, along with Atlanta (5-0), Dallas (4-0), Minnesota (4-0) and Tampa Bay (4-0). And he isn’t slowing down at 41 years old.“I admire his competitiveness and just following his journey and what he’s had to overcome to be able to get where he’s at,” Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky said. “It’s very admirable and doing it this long this well over a long period of time is pretty incredible.”Brady already had more victories than any quarterback when the Patriots (4-2) beat the Kansas City Chiefs 43-40 last week. That made him the first with 200 regular-season wins.Brady came through , passing for 340 yards and a touchdown while running for another score. He also helped set up Stephen Gostkowski’s 28-yard winning field goal, and the Patriots amassed season highs in points and yards (500).The Bears (3-2) lost 31-28 in overtime at Miami after winning three in a row. They remained in sole possession of the NFC North lead, though star pass rusher Khalil Mack injured his right ankle.Trubisky threw for 316 yards, three TDs and an interception last week. He has 670 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception over the past two games.“I think he’s done a good job of getting ball to the players that are open or in space and letting them be playmakers,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “He has a lot of them. That’s the quarterback’s job is to deliver the ball to the playmakers and let them go. I think he’s done a good job of that. He’s a tough kid, which I respect. That’s what we would ask our quarterbacks to do, to make plays to help our team win, to get the ball to the players that are open and in space. It’s not about stats.”Here are some things to know as New England goes for its fourth straight win and Chicago tries to avoid its first losing streak:MACK HURTINGMack’s ankle would be a big concern no matter who the Bears were playing. The fact that they’re facing Brady and the Patriots only adds to it.Mack stayed in against Miami after being injured early in the game. But the two-time All-Pro’s streak of at least one sack and one forced fumble in each of the first four games ended.With Mack less than 100 percent, the defense wasn’t the same.Chicago never sacked Brock Osweiler. The Bears got run over by Frank Gore for 101 yards. And defenders missed tackles on Albert Wilson , turning two shorter passes into long touchdowns.HOME AND AWAYNew England is 0-2 away from home Bobby Massie Jersey , while the Bears are 2-0 at Soldier Field.With a loss, the Patriots would match their worst road start since 1995. Chicago hasn’t been 3-0 at home since winning its first four at Soldier Field in 2012.ROOKIE WATCHThe neck injury to Rex Burkhead in Week 3 and his subsequent injured reserve designation created a hole at running back for the Patriots. Rookie Sony Michel has stepped up to fill the gap nicely.After not scoring a rushing touchdown over the first three weeks of the season, the Patriots have seven over the last three. Michel has four of them, including two 100-yard rushing games.Michel’s production has helped bolster an offense that has scored 30 or more points in three straight games. The Patriots averaged just 19 points per game in their first three, losing twice. Michel missed all four preseason games with a knee issue and said he’s gotten more comfortable each week.PICKING IT OFFNew England’s defense has an interception in all six games in 2018. It is the first time the team has had six consecutive games with a pick since 2013, when it did it in eight straight.The team record for most games to start the season with at least one interception is 11 in 1985. The Patriots intercepted Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes twice in their 43-40 victory last week.YARDWORKChicago’s Tarik Cohen eyes his third straight game with at least 100 yards from scrimmage.He caught seven passes for 90 yards and ran for 31 against Miami coming off a career performance two weeks earlier vs. Tampa Bay. The second-year pro set personal highs in yards receiving (121) and yards from scrimmage (174) against the Buccaneers.

Gone were Kendall Wright, Dontrelle Inman, Cameron Meredith and Markus Wheaton. In their places came Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller. Josh Bellamy started in just two games—as opposed to seven in 2018—and Javon Wims was brought on as depth. The Bears signed free agent Cordarrelle Patterson in free agency this March, giving them more talent to an already-talented unit.That made it surprising when they drafted a wide receiver in the fourth round last week.While the position wasn’t one of their biggest needs on the roster, value won over positional need when the Bears took Georgia’s Riley Ridley with the No. 126 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Seen as a consensus Day 2 selection, Ridley’s availability late in the fourth round was a shock to many, with Chicago’s front office among them. Though the Bears have a stacked group of receivers that also includes veteran Marvin Hall and undrafted free agent Emanuel Hall as competition for a roster spot, Ridley stands out as a potential starter for a team who will need help from players on cheap https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Adrian-Amos-Jersey , rookie contracts as they extend some of their core pieces. One of the most impressive aspects of his skill set is his route-running ability. The former Bulldog shares that similarity with his brother, 2018 first-round pick Calvin Ridley of the Atlanta Falcons. In this article, we will be taking a look at what exactly makes the rookie’s route running so impressive.The first play is a simple hitch route. The cornerback is lined up roughly five yards off of Ridley, giving him some cushion to work with. Knowing he has a lot of room to work with before he has to make a cut, he bursts off of the line of scrimmage with impressive acceleration. The defensive back’s movement to the outside indicates that he think Ridley is headed towards the back end of the end zone on a fade or a lobbed corner route. Fooling the defender, Ridley stems the route well and gets leverage on his man. He is able to drop his hips and stop on a dime, wasting essentially no steps in making a quick move.Ridley does a very good job of understanding the importance of winning leverage as a route runner. On this play, his defender is aligned over his outside foot, which gives him the leverage to cut inside. Using a single move to release from press-man coverage, he plants his outside foot and diverts his route inside to create separation. While the broadcast angle makes it tougher to see the full extent of the route, he is able to accelerate well out of his breaks and make the catch.Ridley’s ability to make sharp cuts and still maintain his momentum is among the best in this year’s receiver class. Going against soft-press coverage on this play, he has leverage on the outside on this play. With his short strides off the snap, though, he is able to close the space in between him and his man, and in doing so, he evens up with defender and creates leverage to go in either direction. After closing the space, he treats the release like a press release Jordan Howard Color Rush Jersey , utilizing a single move cut on the slant. His acceleration after the cut allows him to break free and create a wider window for his quarterback.When given a cushion in coverage, Ridley will make cornerbacks pay more often than not. He bursts off the snap on this play, significantly narrowing the space between him and his man, but still allowing enough room for him to take advantage of the cornerback’s leverage. While he has outside leverage, he flips his hips to the inside with the expectation that Ridley will cut inside for a drag or in route. Still with some space to work with, Ridley cuts outside for a corner route with his defender’s hips committed to covering an in-breaking route. He makes a sharp cut and a hard plant with his inside foot, maintaining momentum at the same time. Even with the late release from his quarterback cutting down the window his receiver created for him, Ridley is able to snag the ball in a contested situation. As an added bonus, he shows that body control to adjust to the ball and stay in bounds to score a touchdown.Ridley best projects as a Z receiver in the NFL, where his abilities to work as a route runner in space will be best suited. This would make him the primary backup to Taylor Gabriel this season. However, he has shown that he can win against press, so he could potentially see some snaps as an X receiver, too. What the Bears plan on doing with their fourth-round pick in his rookie season is still undetermined. Rest assured, though, that Ridley has potential to be one of the biggest steals in this year’s draft.
