The Bears have the NFL’s top scoring defense — allowing 14.6 points per game — while they butt heads with the NFL's No. 2-ranked offense. The Giants did an excellent job of preventing Vick from rolling or escaping to his left, where he is far more dangerous. He has two of the best young receivers in football, led by DeSean Jackson, who had eight catches for 107 yards and one TD vs. the Bears last season. Jackson has seven catches of 40-plus yards this season. Jeremy Maclin has 35 catches in the last six games, including nine for 120 yards in last week’s win over the Giants. The Bears’ secondary plays a lot of Cover-2 and tries to keep the ball in front of them, but Chicago will be at a speed disadvantage the longer Vick extends the action.
