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.
