Preview: Raiders D-Line Vs Bears O-Line, What to Expect

The Bears Offensive Line vs The Raiders Defensive Line


Projected Starters:


Bears Offensive line:

LT Chris Williams, LG Roberto Garza, C Olin Kreutz, RG Lance Louis, RT Frank Omiyale


Raiders Defensive line:

LE Matt Shaughnessy, DT Richard Seymour, NT Tommy Kelly, RE LaMarr Houston


Match Ups: 

1) LT Chris Williams vs. LE Matt Shaughnessy

My Picks:

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.


2) LG Roberto Garza/C Olin Kreutz vs. Richard Seymour

My Picks:

A draw. Seymour will be double teamed for as long as he is on the field.


3) RG Lance Louis vs. NT Tommy Kelly

My Picks:

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

My Picks:

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.
