Henry Melton and Tim Jennings are two key members of the Chicago Bears' dominating defense in 2012 -- and fans have been rewarding them for their effort. With just under a week left to go in Pro Bowl voting, both Melton and Jennings lead fan voting for their respective positions in the NFC.

Melton leads NFC defensive tackles with over 214,000 votes, and is one of four defensive leaders in the NFC to have over 200,000 votes. Jared Allen, Clay Matthews and Jennings are the other three with over 200,000 votes in the NFC.

Jennings trails only Matthews and Allen in voting among the top defensive players in the NFC -- so far. Jennings has garnered over 263,000 votes to date. Jennings has been an important part of Chicago's defense this year, and has intercepted eight passes while recording 54 tackles.

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall trails only Victor Cruz in the NFC in voting. Cruz has picked up over 438,000 votes, while Marshall has over 389,000. Calvin Johnson is hot on Marshall's heels, with 383,000 votes.

Voting will continue through Dec. 17, and fans can cast their votes at NFL.com.
