2. The Bears and Chiefs are tied for the worst scoring defense in the league; each giving up an average of 31.2 PPG. Can we expect a shootout on Sunday? Which defense rises to the occasion on Sunday.

I don’t see Kansas City scoring 30 points or anything. The Chiefs have a good pass-rush and I expect that to get home against Chicago’s line, so I think they have the edge between the two defenses. Still, Kansas City can’t block at all, so Alex Smith will get hit often.

3. The Chiefs have allowed the most sacks in the league with 19 sacks allowed through the first four weeks while Bears pass rushers have only gotten home six times this season. Meanwhile, the Bears head into the game short a couple of starting offensive linemen. Something’s gotta give. Can the Bears get Alex Smith on the ground a couple of times on Sunday or do the Chiefs make the necessary adjustments to protect their quarterback? Can the Bears patchwork offensive line handle the crowd noise to keep Jay Cutler upright? Do you think whoever has the most sacks wins on Sunday?

As I said in the previous question, I expect both quarterbacks to take a pounding. I would not be surprised if there are a dozen sacks between the two teams.
