We’re live blogging the Chicago Bears at the Philadelphia Eagles.
It’s Pete here from The Download with Justin Kaufmann. Let’s pick up a surprise victory here!
I always think the Bears are going to win though. I’m not very bright.
I am even starting Dontrelle Inman on my Fantasy Team today. I believe. (And also have a ton of injuries)
I struggled with my decision between Inman and Martavious Bryant vs Green Bay
Bears start on defense. No Danny Trevatan again.
Let the Cairo Santos era begin!
Revenge game for Alshon Jeffery?
Great to see Hicks in the game after sitting out of practice this week. Two really nice plays stuffing the run.
Nice series for the Bears defense.
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.
Bears special teams are not good.
They make me long for the Marc Mariani days.
3 and Out for the Bears.
I hope that’s not a theme for today…
4th and short. Eagles may go for it.
Windy day in Philly. 52 yard field goal would’ve been tough.
Excellent pass breakup by Prince Amukamara
Eagles TD. Wentz to Ertz looked easy.
Fooled Amos in coverage… I may have jinxed him by mentioning that tweet.
Yes, probably your fault Joe. Stop doing that.
Ertz with 4 catches already. Bears need to adjust to find 86.
I just texted Fangio taking the blame. I’ll let you know when he responds.
Bears catch a break as Eagles kickoff goes out of bounds. Bears get some decent field position for their second drive.
Two turnovers on one play. Malcom Jenkins with the interception and fumbles it back on the return.
Howard absolutely stuffed on that 3rd and 2.
Good punt from O’Donnell pins the Eagles inside their own ten.
Running against Philly is no easy task. They allow just 71 yards per game, tops in the league.
Bears force a fumble after a big run from Blount. Phew!
Need to convert this turnover into some points.
A penalty to start the drive isn’t a way to do it though.
Another Bears penalty. Going backwards.
Officiating crew decide to pick up the flag.
Wow, they picked up the flag.
Chris Long, Kyle’s brother, with the tackles for loss.
They should go for it
That was not good.
Big 3rd down coming up for the Bears D as the first quarter comes to a close with the Bears trailing 7-0.
Great throw from Wentz to convert the 3rd down
Great catch by Jefferey on 3rd down. His fourth catch of the game.
Wow. What a play by Wentz to avoid the sack and then scramble for the first down. He’s pretty good.
That was impressive.
Looking like a young Bubby Brister out there.
Bears can’t get off the field on 3rd down.
That penalty was soft
Nelson Agholor with highlight reel TD
Bears down 14-0 with just under 11 minutes to go in the half. Eagles Red Zone proficiency is unbelievable.
Bears committing way too many penalties.
Bears offense does not look very good early on. Another punt. This one from deep in their own end zone.
Punt partially blocked
Great field position for the Eagles. Bears need to get creative on defense.
Bears hold them to a field goal after the sack by Bullard.
It must be nice to have a kicker that makes field goals.
Bears offense has been inept thus far.
Do they have a first down yet?
Bears now 0 for 5 on third down conversions.
Zero first downs for the Bears.
Might be time to start planning the halftime meal. I’m leaning towards Thanksgiving leftovers.
Nice portion control. Thanksgiving leftovers still available on a Sunday.
Blount now with a highlight reel run.
Hiding them is key, Pete. Vegetable drawer.
Eagles convert on 4th and 1 with a QB sneak.
I’m already sick of hearing Wentz to Ertz. And we are only at the 2 minute warning.
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.
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.
This first half performance by the Bears definitely knocks them out of the College Football Playoff picture.
Bears have 34 total yards of offense and zero first downs as we approach halftime.
Can the Bears fire John Fox at the half? He’s just not the coach the Bears need to develop Trubisky.
Carson Wentz just coverted the Eagles’ 15th first down of the half. The Bears have run just 16 total plays.
That is a pathetic stat. Awful first half for the Bears.
Jeffery with his revenge TD
The Eagles TD celebrations are more creative than the Bears offense.
Looking forward to the days when the Bears have choreographed TD celebrations… *sigh*
Bears down 24-0 at the half. Dismal, dismal performance.
First “Rocky” reference coming at the end of the half. Kudos on the restraint, Kevin Burkhardt.
I held back on “Always Sunny” references.
Bears total yards: 33. Bears penalty yards: 36
OoOoOo, another great stat!
Bears to receive 2nd half kick. Time to put all those embarrassing stats behind us!
Good return from Cohen to start the second half.
BEARS FIRST DOWN.
Inman with a nice catch on the sideline for anther first down
I missed it, but did the Bears fire John Fox at the half?
Haven’t seen him on the sideline. I’ll ask Hoge.
“A little razzle dazzle but there is no dazzle”
Bears lead the league in razzle but no dazzle.
2nd “Rocky” reference. A Geno’s Cheesesteak reference is imminent.
Bears put a FG on the board! Down 24-3. It’s not over yet!
Really disappointed by the lack of dazzle.
Any sign of Fox on the sideline?
Kicking a field goal when down 24 is a sign that he is still the one making decisions.
Another Eagles penalty. Not looking as sharp as they did in the first half.
Another 4th down QB sneak by Wentz to get the first down.
Eagles eating up a lot of the clock on this drive, too. Under three minutes left in the third quarter.
Could be the last drive for Philly’s first team offense.
Did the Eagles send their punter home?
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.
Worst pass by an Eagle, that is.
Fairly certain Jackson would’ve gained more yards than the Bears offense will, had he intercepted it.
John Fox still on the sideline.
How does a TE get that wide open?
Ertz remains uncoverable
Bears head to the 4th quarter down 24-3. Feels worse than that, though, right?
It does feel worse that that.
Bears decided not to tackle on that play by Ajayi.
Great hustle by LeBlanc to force a fumble at the goal line.
TD Eagles after Ajayi fumbles near the end zone but is recovered by Agholor.
Eagles up 31-3 with 13:37 left to go in the game.
*researches mercy rules*
Now I just want some garbage time fantasy points from Inman who only has 5 points.
2 more than Bears running back Jordan Howard. Yikes.
I’m in on that! Air it out!
Fox is still going to commit to the run. First play…hand off to Howard for a two-yard gain.
I still hate seeing Jim Schwartz on the sideline from his Detroit Lions days.
Couldn’t agree more. Total jerk face.
Total Yards: Eagles 392. Bears 57
I was too scared to look it up
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.
Mitchell seems like he’s missing on a lot of passes, too.
The whole offense isn’t playing well. I get that he needs reps. Just seems like a waste right now.
It seems when Trubisky is on target, the receiver drops the ball. Not in sync with anyone.
Nick Foles in the game replacing Wentz. Seems like a good decision at this point in the game.
Digging the green hair on Eagles’ CB Jalen Mills. You think I could pull that off, Pete?
I’m not sure. Might as well try it. Good for the season. Maybe throw some red highlights in.
Now we’re talkin!
Ertz catch puts him over 100 yards receiving for the day.
Has Shaheen played since that first quarter catch?
He had a false start on the last series. Maybe the one before that. That’s only other time I’ve heard his name.
Bears recover a fumble. The comeback begins!
Irving with the recovery. A player I never knew existed before the play.
Try him on offense. Play the hot hand!
Should be another entertaining episode of the Hamp, OB and Koz Show.
Definitely looking forward to that!
Eagles pick off Trubisky. That should about do it.
The Electric Slide to boot.
Interception may come back.
Ruling is an incomplete pass. Bears still have a chance!
Ruling on that one is an interception I’m thinking.
Well, at least John Fox’s last game was memorable.
That’s gotta be the best the Bears face all season though.
Should be much more evenly matched with the 49ers next week.
Bears lose 31-3 and now sit at a woeful 3 and 8.
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.
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/
