The Eagles need to continue abusing the Bears’ secondary as they have done in the last three matchups.

Philadelphia has blasted through Chicago’s secondary in the three last meetings. They’ve passed for 729 yards and have thrown six touchdowns versus only two interceptions during that stretch.

The Bears, on the other hand, have had some difficulty with the Eagles’ secondary as they have thrown for 527 yards. They have only thrown one touchdown while tossing two interceptions.

Fast forward to the present, the Bears’ defense has given up an average of 207 yards passing during their last three losses.

Seemingly, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts should have no issues in exceeding 200 yards through the air as he has averaged 250 yards passing in each of his last three games.

Dallas Goedert will play in Week 15. That provides an even bigger advantage for Philadelphia. During two of their past three meetings versus Chicago, the Bears’ defense allowed former Eagles tight end, Zach Ertz, to exceed 100 yards receiving. Goedert, if healthy, could do the same if not more damage versus a struggling Bears team in Week 15.

Hurts always has his 1,000-yard wide receiver A.J Brown and his sidekick DeVonta Smith to rely on. Both should be able to take advantage of the Bears’ secondary all afternoon.
