In his Bears-Falcons preview, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic focused on Falcons WR Calvin Ridley's matchup against the Bears secondary. “Yeah, he’s a game wrecker,” defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said. “He’s fast, he’s elusive, he’s a great route runner. He can set you up, all of the guys he’s been running, he’s turned around every corner he’s played so far. And you go back and watch him in ’19 I mean he’s just a phenomenal football player.
This game is predicted to produce a lot of offense, but one stat to remember: The Bears secondary has yet to give up a touchdown. That streak is bound to end, and Ridley is an excellent bet to end it. Ridley won't put up 100 yards and two TDs weekly, but expect him to lead the Falcons receivers for a third straight week.
