Each week on SBNation.com we'll have the NFL Victory of the Week, presented by Prilosec. The winning team is decided by conducting a poll on Tuesdays across all of the SB Nation NFL blogs throughout the 2010 season, with you -- the readers -- voting for the biggest win of each week.

On the contrary, the Bears dominated the Eagles. The Bears defense was able to hold Michael Vick in check, and the offense was able to run all over an Eagles defense that had been playing good football.

From the opening possession through the final snap, the greatest football fans in the world were loud, rowdy, disruptive, and completely assisted the team in getting the win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Think that didn't affect the players and coaches as well? Think again. Jay Cutler was fired up, Olin Kreutz wasn't taking any crap, Mike Tice was raising hell, and the Eagles were boiling over with frustration. Forget just making the playoffs... the Bears could be looking at home field advantage this year, and the 4th Phase proved yesterday that we will wreak havoc on those who enter our domain.
