Which Eagles Have Come Up Big Against The Bears?

With the Bears being virtually a division opponent over the last couple season, several Eagles have racked up some decent stats against them. If you haven't started them already, it's too late for them to help your fantasy team, but it might give us an idea of who could come up big tonight.

Chicago native Jason Avant has played well against his childhood team with 18 catches and a TD in four career games, including an 8 catch, 83 yard performance last year. Jeremy Maclin had 4 catches for 47 yards and a TD in his only career start against the Bears. DeSean Jackson has 15 catches for 204 yards in three games. He's also rushed for 50 yards on 4 carries.

Trent Cole had two sacks last year and has five in four games against the Bears (and a forced fumble). Brandon Graham also had a sack last season and he'll be making his first appearance of the year tonight. The Eagle who has played more against the Bears than any other is of course the former Packer Cullen Jenkins, who has 4.5 sacks and 45 tackles in 12 career games.

For the Eagles tonight, the key will be converting red zone opportunities. Last season, they were able to move the ball with relative ease on the Bears, but really bogged down in the red zone, converting only one of five trips for a TD. David Akers kicked four FGs that night.
