Bears Offense vs. Packers Defense
The Packers defense has taken some serious losses to injuries this year. Safety Atari Bigby (shoulder) has missed some time of late and will be missed in both coverage and run defense. Charles Woodson (toe) was moved from cornerback to safety for last week's game. Tramon Williams started at cornerback in Woodson's spot last week. Woodson isn't likely to miss this game. A.J. Hawk has moved into the middle linebacker position since Nick Barnett was lost just before the last Bears-Packers tilt. Brandon Chillar was inserted into the lineup in Hawk's place.
Green Bay only has 23 sacks, with 9.5 coming from defensive end Aaron Kampman. Provided Kampman isn't moving around, John Tait will draw that matchup. Since dismantling the Bears 37-3, the Packers have lost four games in a row. Look for the Bears to open up running before turning to the air to test the injured Green Bay secondary. The Packers will take away the short passes with aggressive corner play. Orton will be challenged to throw downfield, where his accuracy has been poor of late.
Packers Offense vs. Bears Defense
The Bears defense seems to have turned a corner since the insertion of defensive tackle Anthony Adams and cornerback Corey Graham after injuries to Dusty Dvoracek and Nathan Vasher, respectively. Each has had a trickle-down effect. Adams has played stout run defense to not only effect running lanes but also to free up Brian Urlacher. Graham's nose for the ball on short passes and runs to his side has further aided the run defense and set up better down-and-distance situations, which translates to pressures, sacks and turnovers.
With Moll starting at right tackle, this should be a week to see Adewale Ogunleye take advantage of his matchup and add to a very modest set of sack statistics. The Packers still have an excellent passing attack. In the blowout defeat at Green Bay, the Bears lost sight of the running game and were gashed in every aspect. Look for the Bears to tighten up their run defense and depend more on their defensive line to generate pressure without as much blitzing. In the red zone, someone needs to whisper in Bob Babich's ear to remind Bears defenders to pick up the tight end. The Packers used a power rushing attack against the Bears in their first contest. It would not be a surprise to see more of the Power-I and full-house backfield formations that pounded the Bears into cheese curd a little over a month ago.
