The article focuses on the football team Chicago Bears and some of its key players. RDE Alex Brown finally is showing consistent production. He relies on a quick first step to get around bigger left tackles and has four sacks in the past two weeks. With the defensive line totaling 12 sacks in that time, defensive coordinator Ron Rivera will continue to lean on his front four to generate a pass rush, allowing him to drop seven into coverage. DE Michael Haynes lacks the explosiveness and speed for the Bears' gap-shooting defense and has played sparingly as a backup.
