Oh, Dallas, you’re going to have your hands full. Philadelphia, with nothing to play for tonight, against Chicago, with a division title in their sights.
Right now, at the end of the third, it’s 33-11, Philadelphia. The Bears are only now making it somewhat competitive.
I have to wonder about this. Chicago’s offense clicks to some degree, even with Jay Cutler in the game. But their defense is terrible, especially against the run. If the Bears can fire Lovie Smith with a 10-6 record, what are they going to do with Marc Trestman, who is showing no signs of having a passable defense? Through all the years they’ve existed, the Bears have always had some type of defense. This year, they are awful. As LeShan McCoy just shreds them yet again (18 rushes, 118 yards). The Bears have allowed 10 100-yard rushers, most in their history. And the Bears have a long history.
Another 15-20 yard run for McCoy. The Eagles have 226 rushing yards tonight after a TD run by their third RB. This is embarrassing. Give Chip Kelly credit. He can coach ’em up; unlike the Genius coaches, he works with the players he’s got and builds an offense around them.
