NFL picks and predictions, Bears vs. Eagles 2013: Eagles have the edge with the experts

The Eagles are jumping for joy with the experts picking them to defeat the Bears.

By the time the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles take the field on Sunday night, both teams will know if they could clinch their respective divisions with a win. They could both end up facing a "winner take all" game against their biggest rivals in week 17.

No matter what the scenarios at kick-off, the fact of the matter is that one team will win and one will not...unless the tie. So who has the edge in this NFC game? While the Bears have their supporters amongst the experts, the consensus seems to be that the Eagles will take the day. The logic makes sense considering the Eagles have the league's best rushing offense and the Bears are the worst in the NFL at stopping the run. There's more to a football game than running the ball, but you can bet Chip Kelly will be looking to exploit that advantage.

The CBS Sports experts seem fairly convinced that the Eagles will come out with the victory, with six out of nine -- just one pick short of a Star Trek character -- giving the edge to Philly.
