The Chicago Bears head into a game against the New England Patriots with history on the line.
That history is the record of Bears head coach legend George Halas.
With a win, Bill Belichick can pass Halas’ record for total wins as an NFL head coach.
However, the Bears can delay this from happening.
So what are three keys for the Bears in preventing this and winning against the Patriots?
3. Take Advantage Of A Healthy Roster
According to the Bears communications Twitter account, the Bears are injury-free going into Monday’s game.

With Justin Fields having a healthy group of receivers, he might give the Patriots’ defense some problems.
However, the team’s healthy defense can also cause some issues for Belichick’s team.
With everyone healthy, the Bears have all their weapons together to get a victory.
2. Take Advantage Of Mac Jones’ Return From Injury
Patriots’ starting QB Mac Jones has been out for three games.
While he’s missed those games because of a high ankle injury, his return might mean trouble for the Patriots.
The young QB is returning after his last game saw him throw three interceptions in a losing effort against the Ravens.
If the Bears’ defense pressures Jones early, he might make the same mistakes from earlier this season.
1. Roll Out Fields More Often
Justin Fields is clearly not a pocket passer.
It’s not his element, as he makes poor choices while in the pocket.
However, the Bears can have him rolling out more on passes against the Patriots.
If he does, he might find success against the Patriots and lead the Bears to victory.
