The Bears always seem to find a way to pull out wins in Philly even when Brian Griese ran things at QB. This is going to feel like a track meet with the Bears finding one defensive play late to secure the win

Who would have thought that we would be sitting on top of the NFC North right now? This guy. Hoped anyway. This is where believers deserve to be, and for the non-believers, I’ll let you come along too. Never count the Bears out of anything. I’ve read about Philly’s rush offense against our run defense, oooohhhh, I’m scared. Don’t you guys remember that defenders are trying to get new contracts? Are you the same person in a job interview as you are after you already have the job? Reading Bear Goggles On at your desk while you’re supposed to be working, eating someone else’s food that you took from the fridge? Da Bears in this one folks…………

Bears 31 – Eagles 17

@BearsSTH (6-6)

With another primetime game and the Lions and Packers having already played (and lost), the Bears will smell the blood in the water. Win and they’re in. Sure the Eagles have an explosive offense and so do the Bears. This will be a shootout.

Bears 35 – Eagles 31

Mike Flannery (7-7)

I know Lance Briggs is just one guy, but I think he’ll have a significant impact on the Bears defense and they will be able to stop just enough Eagle drives to give the Bears a chance to win late. I think Cutler comes through in the 4th quarter again this week and puts to rest any talk of a QB controversy.

Bears 34 – Eagles 31
