Kirk Cousins voices respect toward Khalil Mack, Bears defense

Vikings Coach Zimmer Previews Sunday's Game vs. 1st Place Bears

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer met with reporters for the first time in over a week.

It's now the second home game in a row the Bears will have moved from noon to 7:20 p.m., with this Sunday's game with the Minnesota Vikings making the move to the standalone night slot. One whose smothering dominance is centered around a hell-raising force who is no small part of why the Bears sit in first place in the NFC North.

The Bears traded a haul of draft picks, including a pair of first-rounders, to the Raiders as the season started, then doubled down by signing the 27-year-old pass rusher to a six-year, $141 million contract - $90 million guaranteed - making him the highest-paid defender in National Football League history.

In addition, the Bears have been bullish on turnovers. "I think that's helped, and I think he's playing with a lot more confidence". "They're really good at making the non-pressure and the pressure look the same, and that's how they get on the edge of people all the time, is just that half-a-second, that half-step where whatever it is, a tackle slow-sets and then he's beat off the edge, or they're anxious about the A-gap and the B-gap pressure comes, or whatever it is". Chicago has benefited from an easy schedule this season, as the Bears have yet to win a game against an opponent that now has a win percentage of.500 or better.

"Their team speed is much better now", Zimmer said.


"I think that Kirk Cousins is a great quarterback in this league". Then you throw in there (Tarik) Cohen and Anthony Miller, who has done a nice job. If an offense dedicates two or three blockers to him on certain downs, it opens things for other defenders to make an impact. WR Allen Robinson had six receptions for 133 yards, two TDs against Detroit after missing previous two games with groin injury. Nagy, the former Kansas City Chief OC?, will have something up his sleeve for Zimmer's improving defensive unit. "They're good at stopping the run".

"We are going to get new plays [from Nagy]". You understand that no matter what your schedule is there's going to be good players in every division and he's certainly one of them.

"They've got really good players on the inside that penetrate", he said. "That is part of the National Football League". Plugging in the former Defensive Player of the Year to a top-10 scheme from 2017 took things to another level, as evidenced by Chicago's No. 1 ranking in Total QBR allowed and yards per rush allowed this season, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The lights will be brighter on Sunday night, but to Smith it isn't that big a deal.
