Which members of the Carolina Panthers need to step up in order for them to secure victory over the Chicago Bears at Bank of America Stadium in Week 6?

Despite the Carolina Panthers being in the midst of a three-game winning run, their overall aspirations for the 2020 season could still go either way.

They look well ahead of schedule regarding the expected rebuild that is taking place. But if the Carolina Panthers want to make their presence felt going forward then their home contest against the Chicago Bears at Bank of America Stadium is one they need to win.

That might be easier said than done.

The Bears boast a 4-1 record and a defense that has been nothing short of incredible through five weeks of the campaign. This is all despite the fact that Matt Nagy benched former No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky in favor of Super Bowl-winning quarterback Nick Foles, which was another hammer blow for a player who is fast becoming one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history.

Carolina doesn’t have the same problem regarding its signal-caller. Teddy Bridgewater has been a huge factor in the Panthers’ success since arriving in free agency and the best might still be to come for this talented roster, who are growing in confidence every time they take the field.

This is a game that could be decided by fine margins. Both teams look evenly matched and it might just come down to the odd play here or there that makes all the difference.
