This is going to be an easy one. After the kickerpalooza that the Chicago Bears had a couple years ago, it’s good to see the franchise has finally righted the ship with their special teams. Cairo Santos had a record setting 2020 for the Bears, and they rewarded him with a three year, $9 million deal this offseason.
EA Sports plans to reveal their Madden NFL 22 ratings in an all-week event that got started yesterday in a kickoff special when they announced their top rookies.

Editor’s note: This is the ninth in a 12-part series previewing WVU’s football opponents for the 2021 season.
