We finished decorating our Christmas tree on Saturday evening. We received a major assist from our 4-year-old grandson, Graham, who covered it with tinsel.
1. Eagles edge rusher Haason Reddick (2 sacks, constant pressure)
2. Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat (2 sacks, 3 tackles for loss)
3. Bears quarterback Justin Fields (2 touchdown passes, 95 rushing yards)
Eagles' best play
Wide receiver A.J. Brown, who had nine receptions for 181 yards, got behind the Bears defense for a 68-yard reception that led to Jalen Hurts' fourth-quarter touchdown.
Eagles' worst play
Bears quarterback Justin Fields spun away from Reddick in the pocket, then broke two more tackles during a terrific 39-yard run that set up running back David Montgomery's 9-yard TD in the second quarter.
The Bears drew within five points at 25-20 on Fields' 32-yard TD pass to wide receiver Byron Pringle with 2:43 left in regulation. The Eagles recovered the ensuing onsides kick and picked up a first down that enabled them to run out the clock.
