Lamarr Houston is probably the Bears' best defensive lineman, but he's never been known for his sack production. He's been stuck on a largely talent-bare four-man front for the Oakland Raiders for his entire career. Playing across from Jared Allen should open up more opportunities than Houston has ever had before, and he'll start the year off in style with several sacks.

Alshon Jeffery picked up 33% of his total receiving yards in just two games last season. Week 1 will be another huge outing for the talented receiver who may already be the most terrifying deep threat in the NFL.

Sammy Watkins' immense talent is no secret, and he's set to face off against a pretty friendly defense in his league debut. The Bears' D looked very leaky in the preseason, particularly through the air.

Jay Cutler has an absolutely unfair amount of weapons at his disposal. Chicago's unreliable defense should keep him throwing plenty.

EJ Manuel had a dreadful preseason, but he has a great chance to break out of the funk against the Bears. Accuracy is the big question with Manuel. If he can get the ball on target, moving the chains on Sunday shouldn't be a problem.
