Bears OLT Chris Williams will miss the team's Monday-night showdown vs. the Packers, as he has yet to recover from a hamstring injury he suffered in Week Two. Frank Omiyale will replace Williams at protecting Jay Cutler's blind side, while Kevin Shaffer becomes the starter at right tackle.

The way we see it

Both Omiyale and Shaffer will need to keep an eye on Packers OLB Clay Matthews, who is leading the NFL in sacks. Matthews moves around and rushes the QB from multiple spots on the field, meaning everyone on the Bears' O-line needs to be aware of him. If the line can protect Cutler, Chicago could claim first place in the NFC North.
