The Eagles are 9 – 7. The Bears are 12 – 4. The pundits have the Eagles losing by about 6 points.
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is familiar with Chicago head coach Matt Nagy. They coached together under Andy Reid.
The Eagles have former Bear Alshon Jeffery who is highly motivated going against his old team. Jeffery has thrived alongside quarterback Nick Foles. Jeffery has averaged 5.3 receptions for a little more than 100 yards during Philadelphia’s three-game winning streak, all with Foles as quarterback. Philly has the great Zach Ertz, Golden Tate, Nelson Agolor, Dallas Goedert, Mike Wallace and Jordan Matthews as receivers. On defense Philly has Fletcher Cox, Chris Long, Michael Bennett, Haloti Ngata. the Bears are up against a great football team. Prediction: Eagles by 1. Of course I’m heavily biased; haven’t watched the Bears at all; watched every Eagles game for the past two years and most of them for the last probably fo seasons and love football having played it for beginning, perhaps maybe seven decades ago. Old loyalties aren’t properly tested…Go Eagles! Go Foles! Go team, go…
Despite all of the so-called pundits predicting the Bears would win by at least six, my prediction proved to be perfect. The Eagles won by 1, exactly as I predicted several days ago… .
