Interesting stat

Andy is 4-0 against the Bears on the road, and holds a 17-3 record overall against NFC North teams.

Did you know?

Donovan McNabb, Greg Lewis, Jason Avant, & Joe Mays were all born in Chicago.

Bottom line

With the Eagles missing 4 key starters on offense, including two pro bowlers(Andrews, Westbrook) this could very well be the toughest game the Eagles have played to date. The Bears are a solid team, especially on defense and they're playing at home. It's going to take a gargantuan effort on the part of Donovan McNabb, who is still suffering from the chest contusion, and the Eagles defense, who is actually remarkably healthy.

Prediction

These injuries worry me. But honestly... we've withstood the loss of our #1 WR in Kevin Curtis. We won last week without Shawn Andrews & Brian Westbrook. As for LJ Smith, he might as well have missed last week for all he contributed... So, despite my doubts, I'm going to have some faith in McNabb and this defense to carry us to a win here. I think it'll be close though.
