With former Bear defensive end Julius Peppers leaving Chicago to go to Green Bay, it looks like the Bears have already found his replacement in the form of former Viking defensive end Jared Allen. A man who has played fewer years yet has more sacks than Peppers. It seems like a smart decision.
The San Francisco 49ers are playing the Minnesota Vikings this week and if they stay focused they should cruise to the win. They will have to contain Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson, but for a team has such a strong defense this should not be a problem. The offense will stick to the same game plan it has used all season.
