Sports Talk with Brodes: The Eagles Hold On & Beat the Bears!
The Philadelphia Eagles hold on to beat the Chicago Bears 22-14 to go into the bye week with a 5-4 record. The Eagles had a 12-0 lead after the first half as they completely dominated. The Bears had one passing yard, nine total yards, and only converted one first down. The Birds came out in the second half with a beautiful drive to take a 19 point lead. From there, the Bears took shots down field and found a way to move the ball. Mitch Tribusky connected with Taylor Gabriel that later resulted in a David Montgomery touchdown. Then, Montgomery scored his second touchdown of the game. Suddenly, that 19 point lead was cut to five. In the fourth quarter, Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense converted on four third downs and finished the game off by burning the clock. Alshon Jeffery had a weird game as he dropped three big passes. Zach Ertz had a big game with nine catches for over 100 yards. Doug Pederson was..... eh. The biggest takeaway is, the Eagles are over .500 heading into the bye with the NFC East still in play.
