I tend to favor teams with new coaching staffs during the preseason because they often feel like they have something to prove right away. Kansas City head coach Andy Reid has nothing to prove and knows that the preseason is about getting in and out with all of his starters healthy for the regular season. Matt Eberflus, however, is taking over the Bears’ head-coaching spot after a few years as the Colts defensive coordinator and likely wants to start off with a bang (especially in front of the team’s home crowd).
