Advantage | Michael Vick
nCutler had success against the Eagles last year, tossing four touchdown passes--two of which went to Earl Bennett who is returning from injury this week. Still, Vick makes a convincing case for the most exciting player in the game. The dual threat quaterback threw for two touchdowns in the Eagles' romp of the Cowboys last week.

Advantage | Matt Forte
nA matchup of two of the league's best backs. Look for McCoy to be the centerpiece of the Eagles offense on Monday-- he's carried the ball 58 times in the last two games. Still, Forte is currently the heart and soul of the Bears offense and has topped 100 yards rushing in three of the last four games.

Advantage | Push
Possibly the two most dangerous players in the league, both Hester and Jackson are lightning fast. At the same time, both offenses need to figure out a way to get their speedsters more involved.

Advantage | Jeremy Maclin
Maclin has been out-producing DeSean Jackson all year and is primed for a big game against an average Bears' secondary. Roy Williams has yet to prove that he's worth the investment.

Advantage | Nndami Asomugha
Perhaps the league's best shutdown corner, Asomugha came to the Eagles as part of an influx of talent at the beginning of the season. Tillman has been burned too many times this season to get the nod here.

Advantage | Jason Babin
nWith the third-most sacks in the league, Babin could have a huge game against an embattled Bears offensive line. Peppers, on the other hand, will have the not-so-easy task of keeping up with Michael Vick.
7/7
Advantage | Lovie Smith
nThe nod goes to Smith because he's been able to do more with less. At 4-3, a Bears' win would keep them within striking distance of the Lions and Packers in the brutal NFC North.
