The Bears and Eagles are back in the thick of the NFC playoff race and will try to advance themselves at the other's expense Monday in Philadelphia.
While records might indicate otherwise, the 4-3 Bears will travel to Philadelphia to face the resurgent 3-4 Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Both teams have won two straight and will be looking to make it three while gaining ground in the NFC playoff race in the process. Each of the last four meetings between these two teams have been decided by five points or fewer with Chicago winning three of them, so expect a tight game.
In the last two weeks, the Eagles have defeated two NFC East rivals - the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys - by a combined score of 54-20. Meanwhile, the Bears are coming off their bye week ofWf two victories over Minnesota and Tampa Bay by a combined score of 62-38. Something has to give come Monday.
Game Date/Time: Monday, November 7; 8:00 p.m. EST
Location: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
