The Eagles beat the Bears 22 -14! Lose DeSean to nagging injury!!
The Eagles beat the Bears on Sunday and head into the bye week 5-4. On a sunny, sun drenched Sunday the Eagles played a Bears team that isn't the same team the Eagles faced in the playoffs last year. The Eagles saw their defense play a solid game and limit the struggling Bears offense to 164 total net yards. Bears QB Mitch Trubisky, who looked hesitant and was sacked 3 times for 23 yards only had 125 yards passing with a QB rating of 66.6, played spooked! The Eagles tricked the Bears and treated their fans to a nice win. With the return of Tim Jerrnigan and Avonte Maddox to the defense, this unit is getting everyone back healthy for the last six games left in the regular season. The Offense, however is in a different place. DeSean Jackson tried to make his return for the first time since week two and it didn't go well. Jackson, suffering from a core muscle injury only played a handful of snaps before he left the game. It is determined that D-Jax will undergo surgery today and will miss the rest of the regular season. If the Eagles make the playoffs he might be able to play but don't count on it. Losing D-Jax is a big deal because the rest of the Eagles receiving core hasn't played well. Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor were thrown the ball 16 times during the game and only had 6 catches between them. Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside were nonexistent. Now the Eagles are in a pickle because they will be without D-Jax and a receiving unit that can't catch. Heading into the bye week the need to find a receiver that can catch and get healthy. They better be prepared for a Patriots team that's coming in next to the link having lost their first game of the season to a Ravens squad who's in first place in the AFC North Division.
