The Saturday preparation game between the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs will be important to both teams as it is the game which is widely regarded as the "dress rehearsal" for the coming season, but it is also one that will have some interesting stories. One to keep an eye on is the coaching match between head coach Andy Reid and Bears head coach Matt Nagy, who was the offensive coordinator in Kansas City last season and the last of many coaches in the Reid coaching tribe to be NFL head coach ,
"I'm proud of him for giving me the opportunity," Reid told Chiefs.com on Monday. "I saw his video and he did some good things with the team, he had a nice win the other night … It's a bit like looking in the mirror if you look at her insult A lot of stuff we did here, he added a few wrinkles, but most of the same stuff, overall, I'm proud of him for his work. "
Even if it's not that compelling, if there's more on each team In addition to this match will also be the fact that on Saturday for the first time two brothers – Chiefs Cornerback Kendall Fuller and Bears Cornerback Kyle Fuller – will compete in an NFL game against each other ,
"It's been since my freshman year," Kendall said this week via Chiefs.com. "And then we played together."
The Chiefs are expected to give some players their debut in the preseason. Among them is Spencer Ware, who will play for the first time since a season injury in the preseason of 2017; The big receiver De & #; anthony Thomas, who suffered a broken leg, suffered problems at the season finale of the 2017 season. Linebacker Reggie Ragland, who was marginalized due to knee-jerks during the training camp and preseason; and linebacker Anthony Hitchens, who will make his first appearance as Kansas City Chief after a thigh injury. His debut with the Chiefs will probably also be Cornerback Orlando Scagrick, who signed with the team on Sunday. For the Bears, Saturday's game might mark Roquan Smith's debut from the first round, who recently ended a 29-day holdout but had to deal with a knee pain attack. Expect the starters of all teams to see the most snapshots they saw in the preseason. Reid said earlier this week he expects about three-quarters of his predecessors.
