When the Chicago Bears take on the Carolina Panthers on Thursday November 9th to begin Week 10 of the 2023 NFL season, they will be hoping to gain an advantage over their opponents at Soldier Field.
Despite a 275-yard offensive effort last Sunday, the Panthers scored just 13 points, and that is their second-highest total of the season. After going two games without a pick, rookie quarterback Bryce Young had trouble in the defeat, throwing a season-high three interceptions. The quarterback for Carolina has eight touchdowns and seven interceptions on 63.9% of his passes. Carolina has been strong by air, as veteran wide receiver Adam Thielen, despite being limited to just 29 yards on five catches the previous week, is leading Carolina with 610 receiving yards and is 6th in the league with 62 catches.
After missing Chicago’s previous three games due to a dislocated thumb, there’s a possibility that Justin Fields will start at quarterback against the Panthers. He converted 61.7% of his pass attempts for 1,201 yards along with eleven touchdowns and 6 interceptions before suffering an injury against Minnesota in Week 6. Additionally, the Bears now have Montez Sweat to exert outside pressure on Young. Two weeks ago, Sweat was acquired by Chicago for a second-round selection, and the team later signed him to a $98 million, four-year contract deal.
Tyson Bagent, who took Justin Fields’ place, has performed poorly in the last two games, tossing two touchdown passes against five interceptions. He had a season-high three interceptions the previous weekend against New Orleans in addition to a lost fumble.
When these two teams last faced up, in 2020, the Bears triumphed 23-16 at Carolina. Now in 2023 they both have rookie quarterbacks who have each recently finished with three interceptions and they will start for both teams.
