5. Finish these sentences and give me a short paragraph on each.
The Eagles can beat the Bears if they…
…can figure out this Bears defense.
Khalil Mack scares me, but I think Lane Johnson and Jason Peters can limit him enough. I also believe keying in on Mack will give other guys opportunities. This game will be won or lost by the Eagles offense, not their defense.
If they win, it’ll be because The Birds were effective on offense.
The Bears can beat the Eagles if they…
…take advantage of the opportunities they are given on offense.
Philly will give Mitch Trubisky the opportunity to make plays. Philly’s D is banged up, and the reserves are young and still gaining experience. If he cashes in on those moments, the Bears will score quite a few points. The Eagles defense has to show up in this one, and honestly that one’s a coin flip.
They’ve played hard all season, but they’ve battled injury. Jordan Hicks should be back. That helps. I hope they have four more games left in them. Fingers are crossed this way. I hope no one else goes down.
A big thanks to Geoffrey Knox and the guys at Inside the Iggles for exchanging questions and answers with us.
