Live blog: Bears at Eagles

We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears at the Philadelphia Eagles.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201711:56 AM

It’s Pete here from The Download with Justin Kaufmann. Let’s pick up a surprise victory here!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201711:57 AM

I always think the Bears are going to win though. I’m not very bright.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201711:59 AM

I am even starting Dontrelle Inman on my Fantasy Team today. I believe. (And also have a ton of injuries)

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:01 PM

I struggled with my decision between Inman and Martavious Bryant vs Green Bay

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:03 PM

Bears start on defense. No Danny Trevatan again.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:03 PM

Let the Cairo Santos era begin!

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:03 PM

Revenge game for Alshon Jeffery?

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:06 PM

Great to see Hicks in the game after sitting out of practice this week. Two really nice plays stuffing the run.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:07 PM

Nice series for the Bears defense. 

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:07 PM

I love the way Hicks has been playing this year. Adrian Amos too, who has graded out as the second best safety in the league according to pro football focus. 

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:07 PM

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:08 PM

Bears special teams are not good.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:09 PM

Indeed.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:09 PM

They make me long for the Marc Mariani days.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:11 PM

Haha!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:12 PM

3 and Out for the Bears. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:12 PM

#BearsSpecialTeams

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:13 PM

I hope that’s not a theme for today…

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:17 PM

4th and short. Eagles may go for it.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:18 PM

Windy day in Philly. 52 yard field goal would’ve been tough.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:19 PM

Excellent pass breakup by Prince Amukamara

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:21 PM

Eagles TD. Wentz to Ertz looked easy.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:21 PM

Fooled Amos in coverage… I may have jinxed him by mentioning that tweet.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:22 PM

Yes, probably your fault Joe. Stop doing that.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:23 PM

Ertz with 4 catches already. Bears need to adjust to find 86.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:24 PM

I just texted Fangio taking the blame. I’ll let you know when he responds. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:25 PM

Bears catch a break as Eagles kickoff goes out of bounds. Bears get some decent field position for their second drive.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:26 PM

Two turnovers on one play. Malcom Jenkins with the interception and fumbles it back on the return. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:28 PM

Howard absolutely stuffed on that 3rd and 2. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:28 PM

Good punt from O’Donnell pins the Eagles inside their own ten.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:30 PM

Running against Philly is no easy task. They allow just 71 yards per game, tops in the league. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:32 PM

Bears force a fumble after a big run from Blount. Phew!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:32 PM

Need to convert this turnover into some points.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:32 PM

Sure do

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:33 PM

A penalty to start the drive isn’t a way to do it though.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:34 PM

Another Bears penalty. Going backwards.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:35 PM

Officiating crew decide to pick up the flag.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:35 PM

Wow, they picked up the flag.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:35 PM

Chris Long, Kyle’s brother, with the tackles for loss. 

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:36 PM

They should go for it

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:37 PM

#BEARSSPECIALTEAMS

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:37 PM

Woof

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:37 PM

That was not good. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:40 PM

Big 3rd down coming up for the Bears D as the first quarter comes to a close with the Bears trailing 7-0.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:43 PM

Great throw from Wentz to convert the 3rd down

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:43 PM

Great catch by Jefferey on 3rd down. His fourth catch of the game.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:46 PM

Wow. What a play by Wentz to avoid the sack and then scramble for the first down. He’s pretty good.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:46 PM

That was impressive. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:47 PM

Looking like a young Bubby Brister out there.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:48 PM

Bears can’t get off the field on 3rd down.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:48 PM

That penalty was soft

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:49 PM

Nelson Agholor with highlight reel TD

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:53 PM

Bears down 14-0 with just under 11 minutes to go in the half. Eagles Red Zone proficiency is unbelievable.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:53 PM

Bears committing way too many penalties. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:54 PM

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:56 PM

Yikes

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:58 PM

Bears offense does not look very good early on. Another punt. This one from deep in their own end zone.

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:58 PM

Punt partially blocked

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 201712:58 PM

#BearsSpecialTeams

Joe Romano November 26, 201712:58 PM

Great field position for the Eagles. Bears need to get creative on defense. 

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:04 PM

Bears hold them to a field goal after the sack by Bullard.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:04 PM

It must be nice to have a kicker that makes field goals.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:08 PM

Bears offense has been inept thus far. 

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:09 PM

Do they have a first down yet?

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:10 PM

Bears now 0 for 5 on third down conversions. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:11 PM

Zero first downs for the Bears.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:11 PM

#BearsSpecialTeams

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:11 PM

Might be time to start planning the halftime meal. I’m leaning towards Thanksgiving leftovers. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:13 PM

Nice portion control. Thanksgiving leftovers still available on a Sunday. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:13 PM

Blount now with a highlight reel run.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:14 PM

Hiding them is key, Pete. Vegetable drawer. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:15 PM

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:15 PM

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:16 PM

Not good

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:20 PM

Eagles convert on 4th and 1 with a QB sneak.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:21 PM

I’m already sick of hearing Wentz to Ertz. And we are only at the 2 minute warning.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:22 PM

I don’t think I have seen an entire game from Wentz. I’m impressed. I can only hope we have the same type of QB in Mitch.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:24 PM

You have to respect the scheme they run too. That’s not necessarily a shot at Fox/Loggains, but the Eagles have great balance. Getting the ball to wide receivers, running backs and tight ends. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:28 PM

This first half performance by the Bears definitely knocks them out of the College Football Playoff picture.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:29 PM

Bears have 34 total yards of offense and zero first downs as we approach halftime.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:30 PM

Can the Bears fire John Fox at the half? He’s just not the coach the Bears need to develop Trubisky.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:30 PM

Carson Wentz just coverted the Eagles’ 15th first down of the half. The Bears have run just 16 total plays. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:31 PM

That is a pathetic stat. Awful first half for the Bears.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:31 PM

Jeffery with his revenge TD

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:32 PM

The Eagles TD celebrations are more creative than the Bears offense.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:33 PM

Looking forward to the days when the Bears have choreographed TD celebrations… *sigh*

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:34 PM

Bears down 24-0 at the half. Dismal, dismal performance.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:34 PM

First “Rocky” reference coming at the end of the half. Kudos on the restraint, Kevin Burkhardt.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:35 PM

I held back on “Always Sunny” references.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:41 PM

Bears total yards: 33. Bears penalty yards: 36

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:42 PM

OoOoOo, another great stat!

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:47 PM

Bears to receive 2nd half kick. Time to put all those embarrassing stats behind us!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:48 PM

Good return from Cohen to start the second half.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:49 PM

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:49 PM

BEARS FIRST DOWN.

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:50 PM

Woo hoo!

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:53 PM

Inman with a nice catch on the sideline for anther first down

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:53 PM

I missed it, but did the Bears fire John Fox at the half?

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:54 PM

Haven’t seen him on the sideline. I’ll ask Hoge.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:55 PM

“A little razzle dazzle but there is no dazzle”

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:56 PM

Bears lead the league in razzle but no dazzle.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:57 PM

2nd “Rocky” reference. A Geno’s Cheesesteak reference is imminent.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:57 PM

SANTOS!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20171:58 PM

Bears put a FG on the board! Down 24-3. It’s not over yet!

Joe Romano November 26, 20171:59 PM

Really disappointed by the lack of dazzle. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:00 PM

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:02 PM

Any sign of Fox on the sideline?

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:03 PM

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:04 PM

Kicking a field goal when down 24 is a sign that he is still the one making decisions. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:06 PM

Another Eagles penalty. Not looking as sharp as they did in the first half. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:08 PM

Another 4th down QB sneak by Wentz to get the first down.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:09 PM

Eagles eating up a lot of the clock on this drive, too. Under three minutes left in the third quarter.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:10 PM

Could be the last drive for Philly’s first team offense. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:10 PM

Did the Eagles send their punter home? 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:11 PM

Wentz fails to convert on 4th down and the Bears take over on downs. Might have been his worst pass of the game as it was nearly intercepted.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:12 PM

Worst pass by an Eagle, that is.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:12 PM

Fairly certain Jackson would’ve gained more yards than the Bears offense will, had he intercepted it.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:15 PM

John Fox still on the sideline.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:21 PM

How does a TE get that wide open?

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:21 PM

Ertz remains uncoverable

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:23 PM

Bears head to the 4th quarter down 24-3. Feels worse than that, though, right?

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:24 PM

It does feel worse that that.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:26 PM

Bears decided not to tackle on that play by Ajayi.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:26 PM

Great hustle by LeBlanc to force a fumble at the goal line.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:27 PM

TD Eagles after Ajayi fumbles near the end zone but is recovered by Agholor.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:27 PM

Eagles up 31-3 with 13:37 left to go in the game.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:28 PM

*researches mercy rules*

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:28 PM

Now I just want some garbage time fantasy points from Inman who only has 5 points.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:28 PM

2 more than Bears running back Jordan Howard. Yikes.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:29 PM

I’m in on that! Air it out!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:30 PM

Fox is still going to commit to the run. First play…hand off to Howard for a two-yard gain.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:32 PM

I still hate seeing Jim Schwartz on the sideline from his Detroit Lions days.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:33 PM

Couldn’t agree more. Total jerk face.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:37 PM

Total Yards: Eagles 392. Bears 57

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:38 PM

I was too scared to look it up

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:39 PM

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:39 PM

I gotta admit, I’m a little nervous to keep sending Trubisky out there against the Eagles’ pass rush with their ears pinned back. Seems like an injury waiting to happen. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:42 PM

Mitchell seems like he’s missing on a lot of passes, too.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:43 PM

The whole offense isn’t playing well. I get that he needs reps. Just seems like a waste right now. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:45 PM

It seems when Trubisky is on target, the receiver drops the ball. Not in sync with anyone. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:50 PM

Nick Foles in the game replacing Wentz. Seems like a good decision at this point in the game.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:50 PM

Digging the green hair on Eagles’ CB Jalen Mills. You think I could pull that off, Pete?

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:51 PM

I’m not sure. Might as well try it. Good for the season. Maybe throw some red highlights in.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:51 PM

Now we’re talkin!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:54 PM

Ertz catch puts him over 100 yards receiving for the day.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:55 PM

Has Shaheen played since that first quarter catch?

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:55 PM

He had a false start on the last series. Maybe the one before that. That’s only other time I’ve heard his name. 

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:55 PM

Fumble!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:56 PM

Bears recover a fumble. The comeback begins!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:56 PM

Irving with the recovery. A player I never knew existed before the play.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:57 PM

Try him on offense. Play the hot hand!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20172:59 PM

Should be another entertaining episode of the Hamp, OB and Koz Show.

Joe Romano November 26, 20172:59 PM

Definitely looking forward to that!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:00 PM

Eagles pick off Trubisky. That should about do it.

Joe Romano November 26, 20173:01 PM

The Electric Slide to boot.

Joe Romano November 26, 20173:01 PM

Interception may come back.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:03 PM

Ruling is an incomplete pass. Bears still have a chance!

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:07 PM

Ruling on that one is an interception I’m thinking. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:08 PM

Well, at least John Fox’s last game was memorable.

Joe Romano November 26, 20173:09 PM

That’s gotta be the best the Bears face all season though.

Joe Romano November 26, 20173:09 PM

Should be much more evenly matched with the 49ers next week. 

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:09 PM

Bears lose 31-3 and now sit at a woeful 3 and 8.

peterzimmermanwgnam November 26, 20173:10 PM

Can’t wait to listen to the post game show on 720! Should be a good one. Might need a couple of extra microphones for OB.

Joe Romano November 26, 20173:12 PM

Hoge and Jahns will also have a postgame episode after they finish gathering tape from the locker room and press conferences: http://wgnradio.com/category/hoge-and-jahns/
