The Chicago Bears head to the city of brotherly love to face the league’s best, the Philadelphia Eagles. We preview the Bears vs Eagles Week 12 matchup with our friends at Inside the Iggles.
The Eagles finished last in the NFC East last season with a 7-9 record and a highly drafted rookie quarterback in Carson Wentz. The Bears can look to the Eagles for a blueprint for a worst to first team. The Bears can only hope that their rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky can have the type of impact in his second season as Wentz has had on the Eagles. He’s not only the team MVP, but there’s a lot of talk about Wentz as league MVP.

The Bears come into the game still hobbled by injuries. They got a couple of players back last week, but also suffered more injuries. Second-year standout Leonard Floyd is the latest to be lost for the season with a knee injury, but at least it’s not a torn ACL. It looks like inside linebacker Danny Trevathan will miss yet another game with a calf injury, which has hurt the Bears defense in recent weeks.
On the offensive side of the ball, look for the Bears to keep trying to find ways to create opportunities for Mitch Trubisky. Last week, they really tried to force Tarik Cohen into the game plan and it had mixed results. It would be nice to see Trubisky continue to build chemistry with newcomer Dontrelle Inman and rookie tight end Adam Shaheen. Jordan Howard has been a workhorse, but will be challenged by a stout Eagles run defense that’s tops in the league, allowing just 71 yards per game.
