Five Questions on Tonight's Bears-Packers Tilt

The Bears play the Packers tonight. This needs no preamble. Here's what you need to watch out for during the game:

Will Peanut play? The biggest question mark for the Bears right now is Charles Tillman's health. After suffering a shin injury during Sunday's win over the Colts, Tillman was listed as questionable. He has a 50/50 chance of playing, so watch to see if he's playing and if he does, how he does.

How will Green Bay compensate for Greg Jennings' injury? Jennings has been one of the Packers' best receiving threats for years. He is doubtful because of a groin injury. They have a deep bench of receivers, but they also may go to the run more. Cedric Benson had just 18 yards on nine carries in his first game as a Packer, but watch to see if he will be used more against his former team.

Will Brian Urlacher be at full strength? Against the Colts, Urlacher played but had just two tackles. He looked rusty, but it didn't matter as much against the Colts' anemic offense. Against Green Bay, the Bears need Urlacher at full strength.

Will Jay Cutler challenge Green Bay's secondary?
The Bears offense this season is not the same as the one the Packers faced in the past. This offense has big receiver capable of making the Packers' secondary work hard to stop them. Will he be able to throw them off their game?

How will J'Marcus Webb handle Clay Matthews? The question of Webb always comes up against the best pass rushers, but he played well on Sunday against the Colts. The Packers will give him a chance to prove he can hold back
