Quarterbacks: Advantage = Chicago
nJay Cutler has more experience and a better arm than the Jags' Blaine Gabbert. He's got more weapons, too.
Running Backs: Advantage = Chicago
nBoth Matt Forte and Maurice Jones-Drew are stars for their team, but Forte should benefit in this game from a more open offense.
Tight Ends: Advantage = Jacksonville
nMercedes Lewis has turned into a nice outlet receiver for Blaine Gabbert. Kellen Davis, so far, has been lost in the shuffle in Chicago's offense.
Wide Receivers: Advantage =Chicago
nMarshall is fast and consistent and he and Jay Cutler are clicking after a big game in Dallas. Rookie Justin Blackmon has a ways to go before becoming a stud.
>strong>Defense: Advantage= Chicago
nJulius Peppers and the Bears front four have been on a tear this season. DBs Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman are lock down corners and the entire D is hot. Jaguars, not so much.
