Advantage | Julius Peppers
nEach team's respective sack leader are also defensive mainstays. Yet Peppers holds the advantage because of his pestering of the Raiders' Carson Palmer last week.

Advantage | Dwayne Bowe
nIf Kyle Orton is going to have any success, he's going to have to find Dwayne Bowe. With more than 800 yards and four touchdowns, Bowe has been Kansas City's top receiver. Knox quickly emerged as Hanie's favorite target, recording his first 100-yard game last week.

Advantage | Brandon Flowers
nFlowers is the cornerstone of Romeo Crennel's 3-4 defense and has four picks on the year. Tillman has been good, but he's been burned one too many times to get the nod.

Advantage | Matt Forte
nForte rushed only 12 times last week, not exactly shouldering the load for the injured Jay Cutler. The Bears will need to call his number more if they hope to take the pressure off of Caleb Hanie. Thomas Jones has gotten the bulk of the carries among the Chiefs' committee of running backs.

Advantage | Kyle Orton
nHanie, who suprisingly threw the ball 36 times, tossed two touchdowns but three interceptions in his first NFL start. In a weird turn of events, Kyle Orton could be starting against his former team at Soldier field on Sunday. Kansas City picked him up off waivers last week but is the likely starter after Tyler Palko threw six interceptions in two games for the Chiefs.

Advantage | Devon Hester
nMcCluster is one of the Chiefs' only true playmakers, but he has yet to score a touchdown this year. Although, Hester hasn't caught a pass since Week 9, the Chiefs would be better off not kicking to him.
