Week 6: at Miami Dolphins

All TE vs MIA

FBG says: Good matchup. It was a great day for the Bears passing offense in their Week 4 outing leading up to the bye week as Mitchell Trubisky passed for 354 yards and six touchdowns in their blowout win against the Buccaneers. This performance came out of nowhere for Trubisky, who had passed for over 300 yards just once in his short NFL career while passing for multiple touchdowns only once in 15 starts leading up to that performance. The six touchdowns in that game were spread amongst five different players, with Taylor Gabriel hauling in two of them. That game marked the third straight outing in which Gabriel has seen at least seven targets, but most of his usage has been near the goal line. Allen Robinson has been the clear top target for this passing offense despite getting left behind in the Week 4 bonanza with only two receptions for 23 yards and one touchdown. Tarik Cohen saw his usage spike significantly both on the ground and through the air as he led the team in receiving yards in Week 4 while Jordan Howard failed to haul in a pass for the first time this season. Overall, this passing offense is tough to trust after what could have been a one-week wonder against one of the worst passing defenses in football--but Trubisky has shown he can generate upside for both himself and the offense around him. The Dolphins secondary is one of the most aggressive units in the game right now with a league-leading 10 interceptions, highlighted by defensive backs Xavien Howard and Reshad Jones along with linebacker Kiko Alonso with a combined seven interceptions. Reshad Jones came back from injury last week and finished with a solid game, defending a couple passes while giving up only one reception in coverage. Howard, on the other hand, had a rough time in coverage against A.J. Green, giving up 112 yards on six receptions. While Howard has elite talent, he has been quite beatable throughout this season. This secondary overall has shown they can be susceptible to big plays, and they are allowing an average of 300 passing yards per game since Week 2. Pass-catching running backs, in particular, have had some success against the Dolphins as they have allowed three receiving touchdowns along with three games of at least five receptions and 59 yards to opposing running backs--all stats that bode well for the likes of Tarik Cohen. With Miami's banged-up group of defensive ends that has struggled to apply pressure and an overly aggressive secondary, the Bears offense should have a chance to make some plays even if Trubisky does toss an interception or two here.
