Which players are potential dangers that the Carolina Panthers need to watch out for when they take on the Chicago Bears in Week 6?

The Carolina Panthers have the chance to make another huge statement this weekend. They go into Sunday’s home clash against the Chicago Bears on a three-game winning run. But this will arguably be the sternest test of their credentials to date.

There appears little doubt that the Carolina Panthers are currently way ahead of schedule in their bid to become a serious Super Bowl contender in the near future. Head coach Matt Rhule has got the team believing again despite their severely disrupted offseason that only heightened concerns about their short-term aspirations during year one of their substantial rebuilding phase.

They are playing with a freedom that comes with little expectancy and Carolina is only going to make further strides down the line once this new-look group builds further chemistry in a competitive setting.

The Bears will be no pushovers at Bank of America Stadium, not by any stretch of the imagination. Chicago has gone back to basics this season, relying on their vaunted defense and a game managing quarterback in Nick Foles who came in to replace Mitchell Trubisky.

A strong start sees them surprisingly at 4-1. But who are some of the big dangers that Carolina should be concerned about during another critical challenge awaiting them this weekend?
