The Kansas City Chiefs are set to face the Chicago Bears at Arrowhead in Week 3. After falling in the season opener to the Lions, the Chiefs bounced back last week in Jacksonville.

Although the Bears are a terrible football team, this is still the NFL and there's no such thing as an easy game. But let's be honest, the Bears are a hot mess right now in a thousand different ways. the Chiefs are double-digit favorites in this matchup and any sort of competitive game, other than one involving a Mahomes injury would be embarrassing for Kansas City.

Even though this game shouldn't be close, there are things they can and can't do if they want to improve to 2-1. They don't have to play anything close to a perfect game, but as long as they don't resemble the 2012 Chiefs, there's no reason they shouldn't be 2-1 come Sunday evening.

Here are the five things the Kansas City Chiefs must do to beat the Chicago Bears:

1. Play a clean game on offense

This first one is pretty simple. After turning the ball three times in the first two weeks, this is an issue that needs to be addressed. The primary way to keep the Bears competitive in this game is to turn the ball over and give them free offensive possessions.

Penalties also need to be cleaned up. The Chiefs are 8th in penalties so far this season and that's another way to keep Chicago in this game.

Kansas City doesn't need to light up the scoreboard like a Christmas Tree, just don't make any significant mistakes, a la the Week 3 loss in Indianapolis last year.
