As Monday Night Football gets ready to kickoff, here are the latest updates that you need to know about.

Are you ready for some football?! We sure are. The Chicago Bears will be taking the field on the largest stage in pro football tonight at 8:30pm ET on ESPN, and doing so against America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys.

This will be Chicago's second trip to the new Cowboys Stadium in three seasons, and Bears fans would love to see a repeat of the September 2010 performance that resulted in a 27-20 victory. That game was all about the quarterbacks:

Jay Cutler: 21/29, 277 yds, 3 TD, 0 INT (136.7 rating), 1 sack

Tony Romo: 34/51, 374 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT (78.4 rating), 0 sacks

So far in 2012, we've seen a little bit of a different Cutler, with him posting a 58.6 quarterback rating through three games, including 3 TDs and 6 INTs. He's also already been sacked 11 times. Ouch.

Speaking of ouch, INJURY UPDATES:

- Jay Glazer says that Matt Forte is expected to start tonight. #EarnYourMoney

OUT (Bears): WR Earl Bennett , DT Nate Collins, FB Evan Rodriguez, DT Matt Toeaina, OT Chris Williams, C Edwin Williams, DE Cheta Ozougwu

OUT (Cowboys): LB Alex Albright, DE Kenyon Coleman, C Phil Costa, SS Matt Johnson, P Chris Jones, DE Ray Ratliff, OLB Anthony Spencer

Some other things and stuff:

- Cowboys defensive film breakdown. Mighty fine work from SBN's neighborhood Cowboys blog.

- Tom Waddle's game preview. He's got the Cowboys winning tonight.

- Kevin Seifert's game preview. He talks about Devin Hester being significant.

That's all for now... Stay tuned!
