Bears Offense vs. Eagles Defense
Linebacker Moises Fokou has been starting at strong-side linebacker since Akeem Jordan (knee) has been out. The Eagles have already lost linebackers Stewart Bradley and Omar Gaither for the season to injury. Cornerback Sheldon Brown (hamstring) is making progress and might be ready to go. Injuries to safeties Quintin Demps (ankle) and Macho Harris (eye) further thin out the Eagles' secondary.
Look for the Eagles to use their pressuring defense to take attention away from their injured secondary. They'll want to force Jay Cutler into hurried throws and costly mistakes. Cutler has struggled in night games but is playing at home. Defensive end Trent Cole bears watching in his matchup with Pace.
Eagles Offense vs. Bears Defense
The Bears are hoping to get strong safety Al Afalava (shoulder) back into the lineup. Backup Kevin Payne (back), however, is not making progress. Cornerback Zack Bowman left last week's game with an abdominal injury but is expected to return. The skeleton crew is already in at linebacker, where Hunter Hillenmeyer and Nick Roach are in with Brian Urlacher and Pisa Tinoisamoa out for the season.
Which Bears defense will show up on Sunday night? Will it be the team that held the Niners well in check, or will it be the defense that was roasted by the Cardinals and Bengals? Look for the Eagles to throw, throw and throw some more. Don't sleep on DeSean Jackson. The diminutive wideout is a game breaker on offense as well as special teams. Holding him in check should be a major focus for Sunday night.
