What to keep an eye on in tonight's Bears at Eagles game:
NO HAPPY RETURNS: Devin Hester is the league's most dangerous return man. He's a home-run threat every time he touches the ball. He's third in the NFL in punt returns and seventh in kickoff returns and has taken both a punt and a kickoff to the house this season. It's incumbent upon Eagles' rookie kickers - Chas Henry and Alex Henery - to limit Hester's return chances. Easier said than done. Henry's directional punting skills aren't as good as Sav Rocca's, and Henery only has 15 touchbacks in 39 kickoffs.
NOT THEIR FORTE: Jury remains out on Eagles' run defense. Redskins ran just 14 times against them, and Dallas ran it just 10 last week (still averaged 8.5 yards a carry). Tonight, against red-hot running back Matt Forte, will be a better indicator of where they are. Forte has rushed for 138.2 yards a game - 6.2 yards a carry in last four games. He's also a dangerous receiver, averaging 11 yards a catch.
ATTACK OF THE WIDE-NINE: Bears QB Jay Cutler is capable of doing some incredibly stupid things when he's pressured. He's also capable of carpet-bombing the best of defenses when he's not. Bears' o-line has protected him well since giving up 11 sacks to Saints and Falcons in Weeks 1 and 2. But the Eagles' front four is fourth in the league in sacks per pass play.
