Three Defensive Penalties on Eagles’ First TD Drive
On the Eagles’ first possession of the third quarter, the Bears’ defense committed three costly penalties. As a result, Philly scored a touchdown and took a 10-6 lead. It all started with an unnecessary roughness penalty on Adrian Amos Jr. after an incomplete pass intended for Eagles tight end Zach Ertz on third-and-six. Four plays later, Chicago was flagged for having 12 men on the field. Then Prince Amukamara was called for pass interference. To top it all off, the Bears had only 10 men on the field on the ensuing play, which happened to be the play that the Eagles scored their touchdown. This was hands down their worst defensive series of the game.
