The Philadelphia Eagles are set to travel to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears in a week fifteen matchup. The Eagles come into the game with a league best regular season record of 12-1. They currently hold a two game lead over the Dallas Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. On the flip side, the Bears enter the contest with a record of 3-10. They currently sit in last place in the NFC North, two games behind the Green Bay Packers for third place. These two teams are currently at very different points. The Eagles are contending for a Super Bowl while the Bears are still trying to find a way to build around Justin Fields. While the Bears have been on a solid tear with Fields, he was a bit rusty in his return last week. However, if he can bounce back, this game could end up being much more interesting than many are projecting it to be.
Philadelphia Eagles Hope to Continue Dominant Run Through Regular Season
Along with having the best regular season record in the NFL, the Eagles have also passed the eye test and appear to be one of if not the best team in football this season. Despite that fact, this is still a major trap game for Philadelphia. Even with their incredible record, they still only hold a two game lead over the Dallas Cowboys. As a result of this, this game is still a must win for the Eagles if they hope to win the NFC East.
They are coming off of yet another dominant win, this time taking down the New York Giants by a score of 48-22. The Eagles were hitting on all cylinders on both sides of the ball. Jalen Hurts took over both through the air and on the ground. He finished the game with 361 all purpose yards, four touchdowns (two through the air and two on the ground), and zero turnovers). This could end up being an MVP season for Hurts and this performance was another boost to his resume. As long as the Eagles show up to play and do not beat themselves, they should have no trouble bringing home another win this week.
Chicago Bears Look to Pull Off What Could Be the Upset of the 2022 Season
The Chicago Bears will have a tall task this week in taking down a team like the Eagles.Last week, Justin Fields had a very rough return to play, finishing the game with 254 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions through the air. However, he did contribute 71 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Despite his rushing performance, this was still a bad game overall from Fields.
In their game this week against the Eagles, it will be essential that the Bears limit their turnovers. Philadelphia is a team that does not go many offensive drives without scoring, and they also have one of the top defenses in the league. Chicago will have to put together an almost perfect game to pull off this upset, however, they are a very tough team to gameplan for and could make things interesting.
