by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (5:24 pm ET) Bears defensive end Julius Peppers has seven sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in seven career games against the Cowboys. That's about the only argument one could make for considering the Bears DST in Week 14.
The unit has totaled 11 Fantasy points the past two weeks, despite favorable matchups. Now Chicago gets a Dallas team giving up the fewest Fantasy points (5.0 per game) to opposing DSTs.
This Bears' defense reminds no one of the Monsters of the Midway. Chicago ranks 28th in points allowed (27.7) and total defense (386.0) and dead last in rush defense (153.6). Leave the Bears DST on the waiver wire.
