Philadelphia Eagles: Predicting wins-losses after bye week
Week 12 – vs Chicago Bears
Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will take on his former team for the first time since hitting the free agency market this offseason. While Alshon may be plotting a revenge game, the Eagles will be keeping things business as usual. The Chicago Bears have been having a roller coaster of a season. Some weeks they were able to pull out shocking wins over tough teams. Other weeks they were put away with ease.
With the help from a solid defense, the Bears have been able to look a lot better than expected. Their rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky has not activated any type of star power yet for the Bears offense. Without a run game, it would be doubtful that the Bears could hardly put any points on the board. That’s where they run into a major problem when they face the Eagles.
As of Week 10, the Eagles are the most dominant defense when it comes to the run. Similar to when they faced the Denver Broncos, the Eagles only have to worry about stopping the run game against Chicago. With a rookie quarterback under center, he will face a ton of pressure when they are forced to throw which will eventually turn into mistakes. Add in an Alshon Jeffery revenge game factor on offense along with the vicious home field advantage and the Eagles take care of the Bears with ease.
