The Bears lead the all-time series 6-4.
The Bears were able to defeat the Chiefs 20-10 the last time these two teams played at Soldier Field in 2007.
Devin Hester was able to return a 73 yard punt for a score back in that 2007 game. Look for him to try to make a splash today after failing to get anything going in Oakland.
Players Who Must Step Up:
1) Earl Bennett- He was taken out of the gameplan after the Raiders did a great job of covering him last week. He will be looking to bounce back after receiving the big contract that he deserves. Bennett needs to help Hanie out today.
Prediction: Five catches, 45 yards.
2) Israel Idonije- He has been steady at times this season, but someone needs to help take the pressure off of Julius Peppers. Idonije will be looking to bring down the young and inexperienced Tyler Palko.
Prediction: Four tackles, 1.0 sack.
3) Lance Briggs- He reached 100 tackles on the season last week in Oakland, when he made eight tackles. Look for him to be pumped up today as the Bears need this game. Briggs should have a solid game.
Prediction: 10 tackles, one interception.
Bears 27, Chiefs 13.
Weather.com Weather Forecast:
53 degrees and partly cloudy by the time off kickoff. Should be a beautiful day at the lakefront for some Bears football.
