In what many believe may be a preview of the NFC Championship, the Chicago Bears head west to play be the Bay as they take on the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. Chicago and San Francisco are two of the top three teams in the NFC and meet up tonight in what is expected to be a tough hardnosed defensive struggle. Chicago comes into the game with a record of 7-2 straight up and 5-4 against the spread, while San Francisco is 6-2-1 straight up and 5-4 against the spread.  

Chicago will play tonight’s game without Jay Cutler their starting quarterback who left their 13-6 loss last weekend with a concussion. The team did not respond well to his absence and will have to rely on Jason Campbell his backup.

San Francisco also lost Alex Smith their starting quarterback during the second quarter last week against the St. Louis Rams. He was replaced by Colin Kaepernick, who was able to salvage a 24-24 tie with the Rams. Cutler has been ruled out and Smith has yet to be cleared by NFL doctor’s to play on Monday.

Campbell has proved himself as a starter with Washington but he is not as mobile as Cutler is and could be a sitting duck for the 49ers defense. Matt Forte and his backup Michael Bush will look to establish the run to take much of the responsibility off the shoulders of Campbell. However, the 49ers rank seventh in the league versus the run and give up less than 95 yards per game rushing.

Kaepernick is in just his second year and is a very capable runner. He had 66 yards last week versus the Rams and 117 yards passing. The 49ers will have to keep their offense from third and long situations that would make it hard on the second year QB.

In the last head-to-head matchup, the 49ers won 10-6 in 2009 with Cutler throwing five interceptions. Dating back 23 years the Bears 0-6 straight up and against the spread versus the 49ers on the road.

The line currently has San Francisco favored by 7 points and the total at 36 ½. Smart money takes the total to pay out on the under, but if a winner is needed, take the Bears plus the 7.
