Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been a problem for the Eagles.
Jeffery beat rookie cornerback Jalen Mills on a 49-yard pass to make it first and goal, then drew a pass interference call on Nolan Carroll to make it first and goal at the 1-yard line. Jeremy Langford ran it in from there, giving the Bears a 7-3 lead on the Eagles early in the second quarter.
The drive covered 65 yards in six plays. The Eagles have just three cornerbacks active for tonight’s game, so Jeffery might not be done making big plays.
Jeffery has three catches for 73 yards in the game’s first 19 minutes.
