(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) Facing the Philadelphia Eagles and Michael Vick will easily be the biggest challenge to date for Bears rookie free safety Chris Conte. Conte has brought some stability to the secondary. The Bears have given up one play of 25 yards or longer since Conte became the starter after allowing 16 in the first five games. The Bears have been lining Conte up deeper at free safety and the former cornerback made his first career interception against Tampa Bay last week. Conte not only will face a faster offense when the Bears play the Eagles on Monday night, but he'll do it without the benefit of veteran Chris Harris, who was cut.

How Did the Eagles Beat Rob Ryan's Blitzes?
