Philip Rivers leads the league with 15 interceptions, has lost four fumbles, and has been the third-most sacked quarterback (25) this year.
A look at four keys for the Bears to beat the San Diego Chargers.
1. Run the football
Last week, the Lions did a good job of game planning for Matt Forte and they cut off the outside lanes where the Bears have been so effective running the football this season. The Bears need to adapt to that because other teams will soon follow suit. The Chargers have a pretty good pass defense, ranked seventh in the league, but they’re only 24th against the run, allowing an average of 127.9 yards per game on the ground. They rank fifth in the league having allowed 10 carries of 20 or more yards. Last week, they gave up 157 rushing yards to Raiders running back Michael Bush. If the Bears can mix up their runs and keep the Chargers guessing, Forte could have a successful game.
