Chicago Bears Sleeper of the Week: Safety Major Wright

It's taken a bit of time to get going, but second year safety Major Wright has taken advantage of opportunities that have come his way in the last few weeks.  He's registered an INT in each of the last three games, and this week will face off against the Oakland Raiders passing attack, highlighted by QB Carson Palmer, who is getting settled into his new offense.

We know that teams will challenge our defense, and Lovie Smith's bend but don't break approach often leaves the underneath routes more vulnerable (see: opposing TEs), but Major Wright will undoubtedly have his hands full Sunday against speedy WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore.

Hopefully, Wright has another big game this coming Sunday.
