Bears Offense vs. Eagles Defense
The Eagles lost defensive end Victor Abiamiri for a significant chunk of the season when he suffered a dislocated wrist during training camp. Even without him, the Eagles have registered a league-leading 13 sacks through the first three games. Juqua Parker only has 2.5 but leads the squad. What does this mean? It means the Bears can expect the Eagles to send blitzes from all over the field. This will be a huge test for the offensive line, which has new starters at both positions on the left side and a right tackle (John Tait) who played on the left side a season ago.
If there was ever a time when the Bears would look to run a power offense with two tight ends and a fullback, this would be the week. It's not a cure-all against Philadelphia. They'll look to counter by confusing the assignments at the edge or creating matchups there that do not favor the tight end. The going could be extremely tough for rookie Matt Forte, as the Bears face fronts stacked to blitz both run and pass. On the plus side, all he has to do is make one player miss and he could go a long way. Kyle Orton will need to make quick decisions with the ball to take advantage of the best matchups.
Eagles Offense vs. Bears Defense
With nickelback Brandon McGowan (ankle) out for the season, Danieal Manning stepped up last week and provided a few of the rare pressures applied to Brian Griese. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris (knee) remains a huge question mark in the middle of the Bears defense. He has done very little to distinguish himself through the first three games. Alex Brown is recovering from a mild ankle injury and is expected to be ready for Sunday night. Vasher has been troubled by a sore shoulder but is improving.
The Bears took the run away from Tampa and forced them to pass. The Bucs obliged them. Philadelphia's weapons are much more dangerous, and McNabb can make time for himself by moving around in the pocket much more than Griese. There were clearly things the Bears were doing that became too predictable last week. The Bears will need to change things up in terms of coverage, technique and disguise.
