Falcons vs Bears, live stream 2017. Bobby Massie will be critical to Bears’ success in opener vs. Falcons
Mike Glennon better have his chinstrap buckled Sunday. He better have his head on a swivel, too. How well the Falcons stop the run is going to be intriguing this season. As the offense destroyed countless opponents, the front seven wasn’t challenged as often as most defenses. As you can see, the only player who’s been ruled out is rookie running back Brian Hill. Other teams were forced to abandon the run based on facing double-digit deficits.
The weakest link on the Bears’ offensive line is undeniably right tackle Bobby Massie. During the first half of 2016, Massie looked like a fringe NFL backup, let alone a critically important starter. Beasley earned a 74.4 grade from PFF last year. Despite registering 15.5 sacks, his sophomore season graded lower than his rookie year, according to the analytics powerhouse.
The road to redemption is finally here for the Atlanta Falcons. After answering repetitive questions about the Super Bowl and losing Kyle Shanahan, they will take the field on Sunday. Instead of facing a high-profile opponent, Dan Quinn’s team receives a favorable matchup in the Chicago Bears, albeit on the road.
