Eagles vs. Bears 2013: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

Nick Laham

Two top offenses collide in Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football.

The Eagles are in control of the NFC East but the title is not Philadelphia's yet. With two games remaining, the Eagles control the their own destiny and that path starts with the Bears in the final home game of the regular season. Both teams have talented offenses, but they also have very limited defenses.

The Eagles have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, while the Bears are easily the worst against the run in the NFL. This is good news for Bears wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey along with the Eagles and NFL's top rusher LeSean McCoy. The challenge for the Eagles defense will be tremendous as the Bears have top receiving duo in the league. In order to calm the storm against the pass, the Philadelphia will have to force mistakes by Jay Cutler.

For the Eagles offense, Philadelphia needs to bounce back and put points on the board early. Nick Foles needs to have genuinely solid outing against Chicago and McCoy needs to take advantage of the Bears lowly linebackers. Another weapon to be utilized would be DeSean Jackson, who is easily more talented than the Bears entire secondary.
