Eagles jumping out to quick start on Bears

All year long, the Eagles have been about pace. And they didn’t wait long to put their foot on the gas Sunday night.

The Eagles took advantage of a short punt and the subsequent short field, and took an early lead over the Bears on a Nick Foles touchdown pass to Riley Cooper.

Then after Bears return man Devin Hester fumbled the ensuing kickoff, the Eagles stuck it into the end zone 2:01 later, with LeSean McCoy finishing for a 14-0 lead.

The Bears had a chance to clinch the NFC North title with a win tonight, but they’re obviously not as urgent about it as the Eagles at the moment.
