If you didn’t know any better, you might think the Philadelphia Eagles were playing the Dallas Cowboys this week. They aren’t. That grudge match will have to wait until Week 16 on Christmas Eve, but this week’s trip to Soldier Field should serve as a nice appetizer.
The 12-1 Birds battle the 3-10 Chicago Bears with thoughts in the back of their minds of placing another check mark in the win column. Don’t spend too much time thinking about Chicago’s double-digit loss total though.
Whenever these storied franchises meet on the field for a football game, weird things seem to happen. We expect a Birds victory, but don’t be shocked if something happens that we’ll talk about for years.

Eagles versus Bears History
Philadelphia began playing football in 1933. Chicago began its journey even earlier, in 1919. Surprisingly, they’ve only met 46 times. The Bears lead the all-time series by a 29-16-1 margin. Philly has taken the last five. Let’s see if we can narrow the gap on Sunday.
Eagles versus Bears Predictions
As stated earlier, we expect Philadelphia to win. It’s hard to imagine scenarios in which Chicago’s offense can match Philly’s output. It’s hard to imagine the Bears’ defense going blow for blow with Philadelphia’s offense. FanDuel favors the Birds by nine points. We favor Philly by 15. Prediction: Philadelphia 31, Chicago 16
