Since last Sunday’s game, there’s been a newfound buzz around the (3-5) Chicago Bears. Quarterback Justin Fields has started to shift the national narrative with some solid play. They traded Roquan Smith, their best player on defense, and then added a legitimate receiving weapon for Fields in Chase Claypool. Three trades in six days is more about the future by general manager Ryan Poles, but getting half a season for Fields to work with Claypool could pay dividends this year.
The (5-3) Miami Dolphins made a couple of trades to bolster their chances in a tough AFC race by getting pass rusher Bradley Chubb and running back Jeff Wilson. Chubb gives them some much-needed pass rush help, and Wilson gives them another talented back to run at opposing defenses.
