Know your Eagles enemy: The Chicago Bears

History

The Bears and Eagles have faced each other 41 times in the regular season and four times in the post season. The Bears lead the regular season series 28-12-1, while the Eagles lead the post-season series 3-1. The Eagles have won four straight overall, with the last win coming in January – the Double Doink game. The Bears haven’t beaten the Eagles since 2011.

Predictions

The Eagles are coming off a statement win against one of the league’s best defenses and one of the league’s mediocre offenses. They will be playing a team almost identical to the one they beat last weekend, except without much of a threat of a quarterback scramble. With the final two games in November being rough games for the Eagles, this is almost another must win to bring their record to 5-4 heading into the bye week. I expect them to do just that in the “Jordan Howard revenge game” and beat the Bears for a fifth straight time 21-10.
