Bears Vs. Eagles: DeSean Jackson's Fumble Leads To Marion Barber TD

The Chicago Bears took a 17-10 lead right before halftime after Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson fumbled a punt return. Jackson backed up trying to make a play and avoid a tackle, but Bears safety Michael Wright forced his second turnover of the night, knocking the ball loose.

The turnover put the Bears offense right on the Philadelphia 9-yard line with just 56 seconds on the clock. It looked like the Eagles defense was going to force the Bears to settle for a field goal after Jay Cutler missed running back Matt Forte on third down, but Jason Babin was flagged for roughing the passer, giving the Bears a new set of downs. On the very next play, back up running back Marion Barber ran through a Trent Cole tackle to get in the endzone and extend the Bears lead 17-10 heading into halftime.
