The Chicago Bears have a myriad of issues to fix right now, but the performance of the kickoff-coverage unit might be a good place to start.
The Seattle Seahawks' 26-0 win over the Bears on Sunday was sparked by Tyler Lockett's 105-yard kick return touchdown to start the second half. It was Seattle's longest kick return in franchise history, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
As Biggs points out, this is nothing new for the Bears. In a Week 2 loss to the Cardinals, Arizona's David Johnson set a franchise record with a 108-yard return touchdown on the opening kickoff.

"You never want a momentum swing like that," safety Antrel Rolle said, per the Bears senior writer Larry Mayer. "The beginning of the game and coming out in the second half, those are crucial points in the game that you want to shut the opponents down. That's two weeks in a row we've given up seven points on a kickoff. That's not acceptable, so something needs to change and it needs to change ASAP."
The Bears (0-3) aren't a very good to start; giving up these big plays on special teams will continue to kill their chances to get a win this season.
