    Among the notable numbers the Chicago Bears will carry into Monday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, one statistical category jumps out. The Bears lead the NFL with 14 sacks.

    Three defensive linemen have collected at least 2.5 sacks, with defensive tackle Henry Melton (3), defensive end Julius Peppers (2.5) and defensive end Israel Idonije (2.5) all ranking among the league's top 20 players this season. That projects as a matchup challenge for the Cowboys (2-1), who have an offensive line in transition that surrendered four sacks in Sunday's 16-10 victory over Tampa Bay as well as several other hits on quarterback Tony Romo.

    That is why Bears coach Lovie Smith has spent the early part of this week praising his pass rush while Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is wary of what the Bears (2-1) can do to disrupt Romo, who lost two fumbles in pass-rush situations against Tampa. Romo also was intercepted once.

    The Chicago DL isn't as good as the Seattle DL. If the Cowboys can run the ball, everything should be fine. Key is the run. Force the DL to think run stop first.

    No, Chicago is better, and they are like 6-7 deep on the DL.

    Get ready for 2 TE sets, 3 step drops and lots of running plays. Should be another low scoring affair.

    Doubt either team scores more than 21.

    And they have superior linebacking. This is going to be the toughest test for the Cowboys.

    Jason Garrett needs to dial it back and Romo has to get rid of the football. Julius Peppers is going to be Hell, and I can see him switching sides and absolutely tormenting Doug Free.

    The middle is going to get physically abused.

    It will be a miracle if Dallas' offense ever gets untracked with the game ion the line this Monday. The Cowboys will have to win on defense.

    Chicago pass rush will definitely be a challenge. This will be another low scoring game, most likely.
