Eagles stay atop the NFL with blowout win over Bears

The best team in the NFL should take care of business against a last-place opponent, and that’s exactly what the Eagles did today in Philadelphia.

With the Bears in town, the Eagles cruised to an easy win, jumping out to a 24-0 first-half lead and winning going away, with a final score of 31-3.

The story of the game was the complete inability of the Bears’ offense to move the ball against the Eagles’ defense. The Bears didn’t gain a single first down in the first half and weren’t much better in the second half. The Bears’ running game was pathetic, and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky struggled mightily, with two interceptions and an average of just 4.6 yards per pass. This felt like the kind of game that could seal John Fox’s fate in Chicago.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz played very well, with three touchdowns and no interceptions. LeGarrette Blount ran the ball 15 times for 97 yards, and even when things went wrong for the Eagles’ offense, it seemed to go right, as when Jay Ajayi fumbled at the end of a long run only to have Nelson Agholor jump on the loose ball in the end zone for a touchdown.

The 10-1 Eagles are building up a full head of steam as they head toward the playoffs and could clinch the NFC East as soon as Thursday night. The 3-8 Bears are going nowhere but last place, again.

  1. NFC BEAST! Better actually do something in the playoffs and IF you reach the super bowl bring a title back to this proud division. I Hate the eagles But will give respect where it is deserved. I am a Wentz fan though.

  2. Sad, as a Bears fan. Sad indeed. I hope the powers that be in Chi town are half as sick as the fans are. Sure, the Eagles are for real, but C’mon man. The dancing is something that all the Bears players hopefully have burned into their memories. And they can always look back how happy the Eagle players were at their expense.
    This is almost as bad as the Emory/Tressman debacle. Sad, Sad is all I can say.

  3. I didn’t realize you can now put on a Broadway Production on the field over an interception up 30 with a minute left 1960

  4. Hilarious how people post with absolute certainty that the Eagles are either the best or are simply lucky. Maybe both? How about just seeing how things go once the playoffs start? Posting certainties that are impossible to assess seem like an amusingly absurd waste of time.

  5. Eagle haters remain in the pit of misery crying about our schedule. That’s ok – Bottom line is we are blowing out whoever is on the schedule. Average margin of victory is 14 plus per game. Bears were a top 5 rushing offense and they got next to nothing running the ball. The Eagles are getting better every game and the Eagle haters are getting angrier each week. Can’t wait to see these next two road games. Enjoy the ride Eagle fans – this team is the real deal!

  6. Elmerbrown, of course u didn’t r realize that. It’s a new rule that started this season, so obviously u haven’t seen much dancing and celebrating this season. Giants#undefeated

    Gotta hand it to you- nobody does Bitter Giants Fan quite like you.

  8. It won’t be much longer until the Vikings come along and slap the living snot out of your frail birds.
    That is if you make it that far.
    You don’t stand a chance against our legendary Defense.
    The Vikes will leave the Eaglets looking like Jerome Brown!!!
    Later fools!

  9. They’ve played 2 teams with winning records. And they lost against one of them. Their schedule is soft. Are they good? Yes. Are they SB material? Doubtful. My guess is they get a first round bye, and then lose.

    It’s the same guy by the way.

    Not really, from the looks of it, I seriously doubt you could carry on a knowledgeable conversation about football or even marbles for that matter.
    Either way, the Vikings are coming to a city near you to slap your team around and make you all look silly. Hide you QBs while you’ve got the chance. Just ask Packer fans.
    We’re coming, and there isnt a single thing you can do about it!
    Skoal!

  12. negadelphian is a drunken leftover from the 700 level who is passed out on the hood of his car by halftime lolololo

  13. Are other Eagles fans concerned that the dumbest, most consistently wrong troll appears to be an Eagles fan? I would be.

    “Skoal”, lmao. It’s SKOL. You probably are here in Philly or in Jersey, not in Minnesota. Come on, lets meet up.
    —————————-
    Odd, if I’m from Philly or Jersey you’d think I was an Eagles, Giant or Jet fan.
    And again, I prefer to converse with people who can carry on a conversation.
    Not knuckle dragging troglodytes, who have nothing to bring to the discussion.
    And you still haven’t given me a single reason how the eaglets are going to deal with the Viking D.
    Let me clue you in, they won’t.
    Never mind, go back to enjoying your win over the sorry Bears.
    Keep slapping yourselves on the back for skating through your easy schedule.
    The playoffs are around the corner and you’ll be in for a rude surprise. Trust me.
    Pleasant dreams.

  15. Yeah, I’m really going to try and talk Xs and Os with someone whose first comment referenced us ending up like Jerome Brown. Yeah, I’m sure you’re interested in discussing the finer points of the game, right?

  16. “It won’t be much longer until the Vikings come along and slap the living snot out of your frail birds”

    Lol. …I remember hearing that same exact thing from a purple fella last year,the “best” defense etc…and we all know who got slapped.I love how vikes fans always talk when Rodgers is hurt…without GB the nfc north is the softest division in football. Ask elmerfuddelmerfudd

  17. Honestly Im just surprised none of Elmers various troll accounts have mentioned zero superbowl wins yet. Thats his go to. But anyone can see we have the real deal at QB now and I cant see him getting us at least one!! Go birds!

  18. The eagles haven’t beaten a playoff contender yet, and the vikes have beaten two of them and made them look bad at the same time. How can anyone be so confident in a team who hasn’t beat a team that’s worth a dam?

  19. Look at how easy the Eagles schedule is though. It’s a joke compared to the Vikings. Saints, Pittsburg, LA, Carolina, Atlanta.

  20. What Eagles haters fail to recognize isn’t who they’ve beaten but HOW they’ve beaten them. Check out their point differential. They have a differential of 160 points (so far) this year. To put that in perspective, the Giants have scored 172 points ALL year. 9 NFL teams haven’t even broken 200 points as of right now. This is a special team. I’ve seen every single Eagles game (except one) since the 2002 season. The only way the Eagles will lose another game this year is if they beat themselves.

    The pit of misery? Dilly dilly!

  22. Eagles will deal with the Vikings defense the same way they did last year with no line, no wrs, no rbs, and a rookie QB.

    The vikings, saints, and rams schedule is just as week.

  24. The Bears almost beat the Vikings a few weeks agao, it was a very close game. The Eagles “S” Stomped the Bears.

    The Eagles are 1000 times better than the Vikings and it’s not even close. Vikings do the same thing almost every year since being in the NFL. They look great and choke every single season away.

    Take solace Bears fans, your team could definitely beat the Packers right now.

    UHHHH, The Bears lost to the Packers with and without Rodgers. You’re a bit corked out bro.

  26. Lmao, Vikings fans are so insecure. Their team is 8-2, and they’re worried about hating on the Eagles. Now I get what Packers fans were always talking about. Your talking about the Eagles schedule and saying the Vikings will smash the Eagles is meaningless. This isn’t the trash talk Olympics. You don’t get a W for trying to talk smack and convince others the Vikings are better.

  27. By the way, the Saints have a tougher schedule than the Vikings and the Rams have a weaker schedule than the Eagles….. What do you think that all means?
