Cutler one of five Bears injured in rout by Eagles

The Eagles dominated the second half — and much of the whole game, really — and their defense feasted on the Bears in a 29-14 win Monday night.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler lost a fumble and threw an interception in the third quarter and left the game with a hand injury shortly thereafter.

The interception turned into what was essentially the clinching touchdown in the third quarter that made it 22-7. Eagles running back Ryan Mathews ran for two touchdowns, and rookie quarterback Carson Wentz was sharp again as the 2-0 Eagles again didn’t turn the ball over and cruised over a second consecutive overmatched opponent.

The Bears lost five players for the game to injuries: Cutler, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle), linebacker Lamarr Houston (knee) and defensive backs Adrian Amos and Bryce Callahan (both to concussions). Houston was ruled out at halftime, and Goldman was carted off in the fourth quarter.

Brian Hoyer replaced Cutler after the injury. Cutler was 12-of-17 for 157 yards and was sacked three times.

The Bears got within two touchdowns on a 65-yard punt return touchdown by Eddie Royal with 5:09 left. The Eagles scored the first 20 points of the second half, and Wentz played another efficient game. He was 21-of-34 for 190 yards and threw a touchdown to tight end Trey Burton.

The Eagles held the ball for 36:05 and limited the Bears to 50 offensive snaps.

The Eagles host the Steelers next week. The 0-2 Bears are at the Cowboys.

    The bears suck

  3. jakec4 says: Sep 19, 2016 11:42 PM

    The Bears stink. Lucky for us we get to see them again on Sunday night. I wish the NFL would adopt flex scheduling starting in week 2.

    Wentz looks like the real deal. Very impressive kid. Imagine what he could be with receivers who can catch the ball.

  4. Youknowimright says: Sep 19, 2016 11:45 PM

    Don’t do this to yourself eagle fan. This is a mirage. It is Cleveland and chicago. Oh these silly Philly fans will never learn. Nothing good ever happens on philly. Something always goes wrong.

    If the iggles can play teams with no quarterback and no defense or offense every week I think they could go 16-0

    Quitler strikes again!!

  7. skittlesareyum says: Sep 19, 2016 11:47 PM

    5.5 yards per attempt is efficient? He’s playing well but let’s not use the wrong word here.

    As a Bronco fan I like to thank the Bears from stopping us from having a decade of misery with Jay Cutler.

  9. bassplucker says: Sep 19, 2016 11:49 PM

    It looks like 4 wins will be a major achievement for the Bears this year. They’re as bad as it gets on both sides of the ball, nobody can stay healthy, their fundamentals and discipline are horrible and they are boring as hell to watch besides.

    It’s going to be a very long year for Bears fans but on a happier note, a top 5 draft pick should get us the QB we need to finally move on from all the wasted years and dollars of the Jay Cutler experiment. Assuming Ryan Pace doesn’t screw that up.

  10. nesby2 says: Sep 19, 2016 11:50 PM

    Fox should be FIRED immediately this team is progessively worse under him & not fetting any better. Cutler traded to Cleveland for whatever picks their willing to give up. Draft our future QB & start over next year. Pace this is YOUR FAULT!! Bears had 4 picks in the 4th rd yet you pass up Dak Prescott & flat out ignore the QB position all together as if Chicago doesnt need one!! You get rid of Slausen, Bennett, Forte, & Marshall for the likes of these clowns?! Man a 13yr old can GM better for the Bears at this rate! Purely pathetic!!

  11. unbridledsexy says: Sep 19, 2016 11:50 PM

    Losing Doug Pederson was a big blow for the Chiefs. That is obvious. But he is without doing a fantastic job in Philly and deserved the opportunity.

    Remember when Cutler was a Bronco and forced a trade out of town. People laughed at us but we tried to tell you. Guy has a great arm, a sour puss, and a dense head. He has looked exsctly the same since his rookie year. For every amazing throw that few qb could make there’s a bone head play that few qb would make. I feel sorry for Chicago but better them than us.

  14. idiedpretty says: Sep 19, 2016 11:52 PM

    So freaking glad we traded Moody, Tantrum Girl, Cutler.

    Avid Bronco fan

  15. polegojim says: Sep 19, 2016 11:55 PM

    Bad News Bears… are BACK.

    WHY do they continue with Cutler??? I don’t get it

  16. classyjacklambert says: Sep 19, 2016 11:55 PM

    Jay Cutler always seems to get injured when the game is on the line…

  17. Angry Orange Man says: Sep 19, 2016 11:57 PM

    From a Giants fan (owners of the most injuries in the league 3 consecutive years) you have my sympathies.

  18. truecowboyfan says: Sep 19, 2016 11:59 PM

    He wasn’t injured. He wanted out of a terrible game he was playing. Making excuses for his crappy play.

  19. frank booth says: Sep 20, 2016 12:02 AM

    This Bears team is built to fail.

    Just 3 carries for Jordan Howard, but I’d love to see him get the ball more and see what he can do with a full workload. Langford’s not the guy, nor is Ka’Deem Carey.

    I liked Carson Wentz. Crisp passes, and seems to have a pretty good command of the offense. Of course, the Bears pressure was weak as usual, but even the demanding and surly Eagle fans have to like what they see.

  20. ninozlatino says: Sep 20, 2016 12:04 AM

    Elmerbrown just made ur awful Skins got beat by a team that hasn’t won without Romo in a long time. Ur QB is a mirage. Hater..lol.

  21. nowtherearesomanybunnies says: Sep 20, 2016 12:06 AM

    Bear Down. Who? Jay Cutler.
    Another Bear Down. Who? Eddie Goldman
    Another Bear Down. Who? Lamarr Houston.
    Yet another Bear Down. Who? Adrian Amos.
    And yet another Bear Down. Who? Bruce Callahan.

    Many down. Way down. Which way are the Bears going in the standings? Down, down, down. Down, Bear, down.

  22. fedegene says: Sep 20, 2016 12:06 AM

    Man, I don’t know where we should start from. I can’t get mad at Jay anymore. When we had my Bears (Urlacher’s and Tillman’s team…ok, I’ll concede, Briggs’ and Peppers’ too) I do think he did not play as the missing piece to complement that defense. Now, what do you expect out of him? He can’t do miracles. What is worrisome is the lack of progression from the defense especially. Remember, even if 95% of Bears fans think Lovie was a poor HC, he set three goals when he was introduced and he achieved all of them in back to back years. No progression here. I am afraid Fox is getting old for this job…

  23. cmarsh164 says: Sep 20, 2016 12:08 AM

    another phantom cutler injury. I wonder how long he will milk this one.

  24. dadsource says: Sep 20, 2016 12:08 AM

    There was a game on? I was busy watering plants or something.

  25. mrclaytonbigsby says: Sep 20, 2016 12:11 AM

    How’s John Fox working out for ya? There is a reason Elway dumped that bum. Stacked roster and the bum got bounced in the playoffs twice and blown out in the Superbowl. Wasted 3 years of Mannings career.

  26. 6ball says: Sep 20, 2016 12:11 AM

    .
    Note to Bears fans : Eastern Illinois alum, Jimmy Garopollo, should be available in trade after this season.

  27. oldbrowndawg says: Sep 20, 2016 12:23 AM

    Well, before y’all start measuring Wentz for his HOF bust, how ’bout we wait and see how the vaunted Eagles do against the Pittsburgh Steelers next week? Maybe the Canton bus ticket is a tad premature?

  28. edelmanfanclub says: Sep 20, 2016 12:28 AM

    The Bears are who we thought they were.

  29. ballreaper says: Sep 20, 2016 12:34 AM

    ___________________________________________

    Always love the salty Skins fans trying to come at the Eagles as a way of attempting to forget that their own QB looks like a deer in headlights so far this season, and there’s already reports he’s lost the locker room. You also (shockingly) overlooked the fact that had Matthews not dropped that PERFECT deep ball from Wentz, those yds per attempt numbers would be significantly higher.

    I don’t think any realistic Eagles fan is having delusions of grandeur. Yes, Wentz has certainly exceeded expectations through the first two games (I love how before the season all the talk was how this guy couldn’t play vs NFL talent coming from ND State, and now it’s all oh they’ve played nothing teams, and blah blah blah). At the end of the day yes, he is a rookie, and will at some point go through the growing pains every novice experiences making the jump to the NFL. However, there are intangibles that as a QB you either have or don’t have. So far at least, Wentz certainly seems to have the poise, toughness, and high football IQ that has been lacking in Philly for some time. It also helps a rookie QB when you have a D playing as well as they have through the first two games. They’ve also dominated time of possession two weeks in a row, without committing a SINGLE turnover. Plenty of reason for optimism fellow Eagles fans! Let the haters hate.

    Cook County Hospitals aren’t used to so many victims on a Monday Night!

    Highlight of the night, hearing Gruden say, “He just looks slow” of the Bears 2015 Second Rounder, Kevin White in practice. Ouch!

  32. chitowngronk says: Sep 20, 2016 1:04 AM

    I’ve been a die hard Bears fan since 1987 when I was born. I can’t stand this team, or any team cutler has led since 4/2/09. Aside from the 6 weeks Joshy football took over, cutler has killed any enthusiasm. So glad the Cubs are doin well

  33. thevza says: Sep 20, 2016 1:46 AM

    Cleveland has some competition this year for most pathetic franchise. It will be interesting to see if Chicago can edge them out for that first draft pick next year. Then we’ll see if they screw that up as well.

  34. headwoundharry says: Sep 20, 2016 2:16 AM

    Jay Baby, hurt again? Wow.

  35. campcouch says: Sep 20, 2016 2:44 AM

    190 is now considered solid.

  36. xargscutgrep says: Sep 20, 2016 2:49 AM

    Pace is in over his head. The best players on the team were drafted by Emery, who HAHAHAHA hired Marc Trestman.

    At this time last year, I really thought the Bears were turning things around. The sad reality is that the Bears are a very very bad team. I doubt we could beat the Jags. Hell, I shouldn’t even demean them like that – at least the Jags have talent on their roster. Coach Fox’s “way” is to play 20 UDFAs so that he can find that one Chris Harris from time to time. What choice does he have? Pace traded Marshall to the Jets so that White would fall to the Bears. But, White is just a combine hero – injury or not – he’s ridiculously slow. It isn’t a hammy – he was running a bunch of slants during preseason instead of routes downfield. You only do that when you can’t separate from a CB.

    Floyd? Give me a break. He is about 20 lbs too light and he will lose all of his so-called elite speed this offseason when he tries to bulk up.

    Thanks Ryan!

  37. hyzers says: Sep 20, 2016 3:37 AM

    LOL. Bears already in the NFC North basement like usual.

  38. Indybear says: Sep 20, 2016 6:40 AM

    Nice to see bassplucker stayed up past his bedtime to spread his perennial negativity about the team. You gave up on the team after the second preseason game. Remember? Why do you continue to watch, follow and comment on a team which you so obviously despise? The Bears will get better. It’s not going to happen this Sunday at Dallas.

  39. eagleswin says: Sep 20, 2016 6:55 AM

    Good start to the season for the Eagles but things get tougher next week. The Steelers will be a real test.

    The Eagles defense is better than advertised this year but Antonio Brown and DeAngelo Williams will be almost impossible to shut down.

    The early returns on the rookie QB and new coaching staff have been tremendous, Hopefully Wentz will learn to protect himself when running, he took several hits when running that he didn’t need to take.

    Some people have been waiting for 2 weeks to dump on the Eagles after a loss. It’s coming at some point, hopefully not this coming week, but for a team that was expected to go nowhere this year, most Eagles fans are just enjoying the moment.

  40. bassplucker says: Sep 20, 2016 8:02 AM

    He wasn’t injured. He wanted out of a terrible game he was playing. Making excuses for his crappy play.
    ——————-
    This seems to be prevailing narrative on the talk radio shows this morning. And not just Joe Sixpack but former players saying it too.

    Irregardless whether he turns out to be actually injured or not, it is time for change at the Bears QB position. Yes even if that means going 3-13 with Hoyer this season. The Bears have swapped in virtually every other player on the roster from the 2014 Trestman debacle and yet the results are no better. I have backed Cutler for longer than many, but the team needs a new presence at that position. What he and Darrel No-gains are doing in that excuse for a Bears offense simply cannot be allowed to continue.

  41. iowahbr says: Sep 20, 2016 8:35 AM

    Wentz has played in a total of 1 regular season NFL game before last night and made the Bears look silly. The rest of the year it will be tough injuries and we are building for next year. 5 and 11 is looking like a reach right now.

    Official Soldier’s Field attendance last night: 68,000 masochists.

  42. oscarxray says: Sep 20, 2016 8:42 AM

    Us Browns fans were afraid Wentz might be the next Roethlisberger. Now it looks as if Ben Roethisberger may someday be known as the first Carson Wentz.

  43. beerbudsnbevo says: Sep 20, 2016 9:20 AM

    The Eagles look good, but remember they have played two crappy teams in a row out of the gate…

  44. immafubared says: Sep 20, 2016 9:22 AM

    I picked them last night thinking the d is improved, its wentz and Cutler needs the win at home.
    Wow did that idea suck. the Bears are another year rebuilding thats for sure. They just look flat other than running back.

  45. lukedunphysscienceproject says: Sep 20, 2016 9:23 AM

    Two weeks ago, most pundits picked this team to lose to the BROWNS. Think about THAT.

    That said, slow your roll Eagles fans. Your team has won two games against opponents who may not win 4 games between them all year.

    Next week will be the test. Beat the Steelers and you’ll have something worth talking about.

  46. greenmtnboy31 says: Sep 20, 2016 10:31 AM

    As a Bears fan, I simply want to know when we can get rid of Cutler and start on a road to a winning franchise. I’ve had it with that loser and his loser attitude. He’s a cancer and he needs to go yesterday!

  47. ariani1985 says: Sep 20, 2016 10:37 AM

    Figured fake bears fan frankie booth would be making excuses for the Packers on this thread!

  48. iowahbr says: Sep 20, 2016 10:54 AM

    I’m sending Fox $125 after last night. He saved me $250 this year on refusing the Direct TV NFL ticket and it’s only fair to split it with him.

    Why is a Bears game like a root canal? Answer: both are very painful and it feels so good when both are over
