Top Storyline
The Bears will aim to snap a two-game skid on Sunday and recapture a winning record. In the first quarter of the season, Chicago was heavily reliant on its defense to shoulder the weight. Over the past two weeks, the script has flipped with the offense exploding for points while the defense has returned to normalcy. Against the Jets, the Bears will look to find their rhythm on both fronts. The defense — despite the result the past two weeks — ranks toward the top of the league in most categories, and the Bears are the only team to have not allowed a rushing touchdown this season. On the offensive side of things, Chicago needs to carry its momentum over from the last three weeks. Chicago is averaging 35.7 points per game during that span, the third most in the NFL. If quarterback Mitchell Trubisky can stay hot — he's accounted for 12 touchdowns over the past three games — and the Bears defense can take advantage of a young Jets offense, Chicago should be in good shape to take home the win.

Taming the East Beast
Sunday's game will be the Bears' third straight against an AFC East opponent, and they'll follow it up by playing their fourth and final AFC East foe the following weekend when they travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills. The Bears are 22-27 all-time against the division and are looking for their first victory over an AFC East team since 2014. With a win Sunday, Chicago has a chance to finish .500 against the division this year.

History Lesson
The Bears are 8-3 all-time against the Jets in regular-season play. Chicago has won the last four contests dating back to 2002. The last time the Jets played at Soldier Field, the Bears edged them, 38-34, in 2010.
