Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles

That is going to be the final word check for the Bears. The Eagles are by far the very best staff they'll face this season. So as to add to that, the Eagles are enjoying at dwelling, the place they haven't misplaced this season.
The Eagles current such a tough problem as a result of they're good on either side of the ball. Positive, they'lland cansurrender a variety of factors, however they're an attacking protection that may confuse a rookie quarterback. On paper, this matchup would appear to be wholly within the favor of the Eagles.
There's a glimmer of hope nonetheless. The Bears, below John Fox, have appeared to play both as much as the extent of competitors, or right down to it. My guess is that this staff performs onerous, fights, and makes it fascinating on the finish. The opposite motive for optimism is the truth that the offense has opened up the previous two weeks. The Bears are going to have to attain factors to maintain this shut. If Dowell Loggains has been saving performs for the appropriate time, that is it.

What to Watch For

On offense, the Bears have began to unleash Mitchell Trubisky somewhat bit. Because the season progresses, I anticipate increasingly more to be added to his plate. If there was ever a sport to go fully in opposition to the grain, that is it. The Eagles will certainly assault the Bears with aggression. Loggains goes to wish to counter that proper off the bat. Count on to see extra screens and brief, perimeter passes early on to gradual the go rush.
As we've got seen, the opening of the playbook has gotten the operating sport again on-track. I anticipate Jordan Howard to have one other large sport this week. The Bears gained’t get away from the run on this sport, they're too dedicated at this level. It it simply fascinating to see that when the passing sport has proven somewhat life, the operating sport has an enormous day.
Defensively, this staff is in a little bit of a large number. It seems that Pernell McPhee is injured (once more) and with Leonard Floyd on injured reserve, the go rush goes to be non-existent. Search for Isiah Irving to get a variety of enjoying time in addition to Howard Jones, who was simply signed off of the observe squad. If the Bears can’t disrupt Carson Wentz, they're in for an extended day.
As I did final week, keep watch over the play designs and requires the Eagles. Frank Reich is a reputation to observe for as we enter the low season for head teaching vacancies. He has expertise with a younger quarterback in Wentz, so that is going to be one of many hottest names come January. Don’t be shocked to see his identify as having been interviewed, ought to the Bears fireplace their teaching workers.

Who to Watch

Mitchell Trubisky: For the remainder of the season, it's paramount to observe Trubisky’s growth. He has steadily carried out higher and cleaned up errors, in each sport this season. Maybe Fox and Loggains aren’t the very best males for the job, however clearly Trubisky is growing. Possibly that may be a testomony to why he was chosen second general, however both method, watching him develop is a very powerful a part of this season.
Adam Shaheen: Final week was Shaheen’s greatest sport. Dion Sims seems to be coming again into the lineup tomorrow, so I'm curious how the Bears deal with this. You may argue that Shaheen has earned the beginning spot given the play of Sims thus far. Couple that with Sims’ contract scenariothere may be an out on the finish of the 12 months — and one might make a case that Sims must be the back-up to Shaheen.
Christian Jones: With Floyd out and McPhee doubtlessly out, I'm curious to see if Jones will get a take a look at outdoors linebacker this week. The Bears are dangerously skinny at this place however nonetheless have some depth at inside linebacker. Jones performed defensive finish in school, and has additionally performed a bit of out of doors linebacker with the Bears. Personally, I'd transfer Jones and put John Timu in his spot.
Akiem Hicks: Hicks is somewhat banged-up and is listed as questionable on the harm report. I've thought for a lot of the season that Hicks performs too many snaps. He's a big man and must be rotated a bit extra. Provided that the Bears are actually Three-7 on the season, it's time to begin getting some youthful gamers on the sphere. With fewer reps, I really feel like Hicks’ play will enhance.

Keys to the Sport

No Self-Inflicted Wounds: This has been a killer all season. It's particularly dangerous when dealing with a staff just like the Eagles. The Bears can not afford to kill their very own drives with penalties, drops, sacks, and so on. The offense final week was, for essentially the most half, skilled. If they may have eradicated these sorts of errors, the Bears would have gained that sport in opposition to the Lions. Not solely that, however they seemed like an offense that might truly compete on the NFL stage, that's one thing that we haven’t seen a lot in Chicago.
Getting House: Vic Fangio has had an up-and-down season, particularly in terms of the go rush. Fangio goes to have to assist out by dialing up artistic blitzes, on the proper instances. If the Bears protection sits again in zone and rushes four, the Eagles will put up 40 factors.
The X-Issue: Tarik Cohen goes to play an enormous position on this sport. You possibly can most likely take a look at his stat line on the finish of this sport and decide how the Bears fared in opposition to the Eagles. Cohen needs to be moved throughout. To make use of the proverbial “chess piece” reference, that's precisely how Cohen must be used. It was higher final week than in earlier weeks, so hopefully Loggains has found out the right way to use most dynamic piece.
