Chicago has been a homebody their last two games, but they are heading out on Sunday. They will take on Philadelphia at 1 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field. The Bears have a defense that allows only 17.43 points per game, so Philadelphia's offense will have their work cut out for them.

Chicago might have drawn first blood against the Chargers last week, but it was the Chargers who got the last laugh. The Bears and the Chargers were almost perfectly matched up, but the Bears suffered an agonizing 17-16 loss. The losing side was boosted by RB David Montgomery, who rushed for 135 yards and one TD on 27 carries. This was the first time Montgomery has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year.

Meanwhile, you can't lose the contest if you win every quarter, and that was precisely Philadelphia's strategy against Buffalo last week. The Eagles captured a comfortable 31-13 win over Buffalo. No one put up better numbers for the Eagles than RB Miles Sanders, who really brought his A game. He rushed for 74 yards and one TD on three carries. Sanders put himself on the highlight reel with a 65-yard TD scramble in the third quarter.

Chicago is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. Now might not be the best time to take Chicago against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.

It could have gone either way late during winning time for Chicago or the Eagles when the two teams last met in January, but it was the Eagles snatching the 16-15 victory. The defeat knocked the Bears out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at the Eagles with a vengeful fire.

It was just last week when the Eagles were coming off two straight blowout losses heading into Buffalo. The Eagles’ win over the Bills was decisive, yes, but it wasn’t a performance that erased all previous doubts about this team. And yet, again, I just feel really good about the Eagles today.

Getting key players back from injury — hello there, DeSean Jackson — is certainly a big reason for optimism. The Eagles’ wide receiver “production” has been so abysmal without No. 10 on the field. It’s unclear just how effective Jackson will be but at the very least his mere presence is more threatening than having Mack Hollins out there. Carson Wentz had a real great chemistry with Jackson prior to the veteran’s injury so I imagine we’ll see them connect at some point.

Another reason why I feel so good about this game has nothing to do with the Eagles and everything to do with the Bears. More specifically, Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears’ starting quarterback has basically been a disaster this season. It’s hardly like the Eagles’ defense is impervious to getting shredded but I’d be shocked if Trubisky carves them up. The Eagles’ secondary figures to be stabilized with Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills, and Avonte Maddox all playing at cornerback. Much more importantly, Philly’s pass rush has been coming on in recent weeks. They should be able to pressure Trubisky into a turnover or two.
