The Bears Offensive Line vs The Raiders Defensive Line
Bears Offensive line:
Raiders Defensive line:
1) LT Chris Williams vs. LE Matt Shaughnessy
Run: Williams was the best lineman last week. And he should get the better of this matchup against pass-rush specialist Shaughnessy in running situations.
Pass: Shaughnessy should win the battle on passing downs. So look for him to put pressure on Cutler and possibly finish with a sack.
A draw. Seymour will be double teamed for as long as he is on the field.
3) RG Lance Louis vs. NT Tommy Kelly
Run/Pass: Kelly should dominate. Louis was manhandled against the run last week. And one-on-one against the veteran Kelly, Louis will emulate a lawn chair in Autumn, he will get folded up. Look for Kelly to be Sapp-like on Saturday.
4) RT Frank Omiyale vs. RE LaMarr Houston
Run/Pass: Houston will dominate against Omiyale, who fared well last week against the Chargers top pass-rusher. However, Houston is a different breed of player—unique in the spirited Raiders Tradition of mean and gritty.
