Rookie kicker Nick Folk puts his perfect field goal streak on the line at Soldier Field against the Bears. Folk is 4-for-4 on field goals and will be tested with the tricky winds in Chicago. He talked with buddy and Bears linebacker Lance Briggs, who also played at Arizona, before the season about the matchup.
``You can't really play the wind too much, because you can't do anything to simulate it,'' Folk said.
Briggs told Folk he was catching a break playing in Chicago in September and dodging the cold brutal winter winds.
Folk has the wind and return star Devin Hester to worry about Sunday. And what if Folk gets a 1-on-1 shot at Hester as the last line of defense on a kick return?
``I'll slide-tackle him, maybe,'' Folk said.
