Last year's MVP should open up the season with a bang. The Bears front seven is much better than most realize, but their secondary is a problem. They don't have a cornerback to stop Julio Jones. In fact, they don't have a double-team that can stop him.

Ryan had 2,363 yards passing, 19 passing touchdowns, 3 picks and a 115.00 QB rating on the road last year. He should carve up a questionable Bears D in Week 1.
