2. Andre Dillard, LT
This one should go without saying. For the last couple of weeks, Andre Dillard has had to step in and start for the injured Jason Peters. He’s had some stiff competition over the last couple of weeks, but nobody has given him a challenge as tough as Kahlil Mack.
Let’s just say this — not many offensive linemen in the game can stop the Mack Train. You just have to contain and hope that the help around will be able to make a difference and keep the Bears’ pass rusher out of the backfield.
Now, the Bears do like to move Mack around, and there could be a chance he’s lined up on Lane Johnson’s side at times. However, we doubt the Bears will do that. Why would they line Mack up against one of the NFL’s better right tackles when they can line him up over a rookie who’s playing in his third start? It just makes too much sense. This week, Dillard faces a huge test. Hopefully, the results are positive.
