1. Jordan Howard, the Eagles’ sixth captain for this one, gets 25 carries, and scores two rushing touchdowns.
It’s probably safe to say Jordan Howard will serve as Philly’s sixth captain for this one. In a game where offensive guys get most of the attention, the stars on this Bears team play on defense (no disrespect to Tarik Cohen and Allen Robinson III).
There are some young ‘monsters’ growing up in the Midway.
With struggling wide receivers and an ailing DeSean Jackson on the Eagles side, it probably isn’t bold to say points will be at a premium. It may be bold, however, to say Doug Pederson and Mike Groh will decide to run the ball and stick with that strategy. It may be even bolder to say that plan will work versus the Bears to the tune of 25 carries, 125 yards and two touchdowns for Jordan Howard.
