The Carolina Panthers go in search of their fourth victory of the season against the Chicago Bears, but what is the mood like behind enemy lines?

It promises to be another stern test for the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The team is currently full of confidence after rolling off three straight victories, but this could all come crashing to a halt if they fail to perform against the in-form Chicago Bears at Bank of America Stadium.

This is the best defense that the Carolina Panthers have faced this season, of that there is little doubt. The Bears look back to the dominant unit of old who has played a leading role in their 4-1 opening to the campaign and it will be interesting to see what offensive coordinator Joe Brady cooks up to counteract their playmaking ability.

If the Panthers can get another victory, then they will be officially in playoff contention. The NFC might have three legitimate Super Bowl contenders in the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, and Green Bay Packers. But Carolina could be in with a shot with an extra postseason place available this season as part of the new structure.

The Bears also find themselves in the running despite replacing quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with Nick Foles. We virtually sat down with Rob Schwartz Jr., site expert at Bear Goggles On, for five questions from behind enemy lines ahead of the Week 6 matchup.
