After a nightmare start the Philadelphia Eagles may finally be living the dream their also-ran backup quarterback spoke of in August. The Chicago Bears have also been underachieving this year. Unlike the Eagles, they show no signs of righting the course. So, Philly should be able to win easily on Monday night, right? Yes and no, according to the experts.
Experts seem settled on the idea of the Eagles winning; however, many foresee a very close game. That could very well be the case if Matt Forte runs the way he has been, especially against an Eagles defense that was having trouble against the run.
The Eagles are coming off an impressive victory over Dallas, while the Bears are coming off the bye. Both teams seemed to fix some early-season troubles in their last couple of games. The Eagles will get after Jay Cutler here and LeSean McCoy outdoes Matt Forte. Eagles handily.
