We know the Philadelphia Eagles have the potential to blow the doors off here, but this is a potential look ahead spot with the Cowboys on deck next week. It’s also going to be cold and windy in Chicago. Also, the Chicago Bears have had an extra week to prepare for this game, which has to count for something. If there’s a weakness on this Eagles team, it may be their run defense, that allows 118.3 yards. The Bears are the top rushing team in the league. I like the points with the Bears at home.
