What is the line telling you:
Cold, windy weather combined with a healthy Bears defensive backfield could numbers to drop. The Eagles are flying high after that blowout win against the Giants and could be looking ahead past the Bears here to the big division game against the Cowboys next week. Sharp money took the plus-10 on the home team with the Bears here. The Bears have a few healed up defensive backs who will be key to slowing down the Eagles passing game on a cold, windy day in Chicago. Cornerbacks Kyler Gordon and Kindle Vildor along with safety Jaquan Brisker are ready to roll for Chicago.
