We all loved what we saw from Carson Wentz and the Eagles in Week 1, and then the NFL made us wait an extra day to watch them do it all again. The Bears' defense presents a little more of a challenge than the Browns' unit did, which means Wentz's performance will be extremely interesting to watch, especially on Monday Night Football.
The Bears lost their first game of the season, a 23-14 defeat at the hands of Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans.
Zach Ertz and Leodis McKelvin are both out for the Eagles. Trey Burton is back in the lineup as the team's second tight end, and Ron Brooks is starting on the outside in place of McKelvin.
