The Eagles have had their way with the Bears in their last five meetings.

The Philadelphia Eagles look to improve to an NFL-best 13-1 with a win over Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears in Week 15.  Recent history is on the Birds’ side for this matchup as they have won the last five meetings. They’ve met on the gridiron for 46 total meetings. Chicago has come out on top 29 times. Many of those games came between 1930 and the late 1980s. With that being said, it’s safe to say that Philly is beginning to take a stranglehold on the all-time series.

Philly has some work to do if they’re going to bring the all-time tally back to equal footing. They own 16 wins in the series (these teams have also tied once), but a win in Week 15 on Sunday would be a step in the right direction.

There hasn’t been a shortage of points when these two teams battle each other, as they’ve combined for 1,685 points in those 46 contests. The Bears hold a slight edge there as well (958 points scored for Chicago versus 727 for Philly).

The last five games haven’t been as close on average. Philly has poured it on, outscoring Chicago 152 to 57 since 2013.

Carson Wentz and Nick Foles have been the stars of the Eagles’ show during that stretch. Wentz took care of the Bears in 2017 and 2019. Foles carried the Eagles to a Wild Card Round win in January of 2019. Most remember that one as the “double-doink game”

FanDuel favors Philly by nine points in Week 15. Here are three theories the Birds utilized while traveling ‘the road to victory’, three theories Philadelphia could use to extend their winning streak over the Bears to six straight games if they employ them again.
