The Chicago Bears fell to the Philadelphia Eagles 31-3 in a humiliating road loss. The humiliating loss marks the 4th straight loss for them and the 9th straight win for the Eagles. The game that was truly never close solidified the disastrous season that was the Bear's. With a bad season however comes a good draft pick, but that isn't what this article is about. The impressive season the Eagles are having is especially impressive for star players on their team like Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz.
Tight end Zach Ertz and the Eagles struck first in the game when he caught a 17-yard touchdown with 6:04 remaining in the first quarter. On that drive, the Bears defense had opportunities to stop the Eagles on fourth and one and third and eight but they failed to make a play. Eagles Quarterback Carson Wentz threw for two more touchdowns in the half, one to Nelson Agholor and one to Alshon Jeffery. The Bears were behind 24-0 after two quarters which can only be described as one of the most embarrassing halves in Bears history. During this half, the Bears accumulated 33 yards from scrimmage to the Eagles 272. One of the lone highlight plays for the Bears came in the fourth quarter when cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc chased down Eagles running back Jay Ajayi on a 30-yard run and stripped the ball from him, a great effort play. However, no other Bear defender had hustled to be in the area and Nelson Agholor dove on the ball in the endzone for a touchdown. Throughout the game, the Eagles stingy defense held running backs Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard in check while picking off quarterback Mitch Trubisky twice. Tarik Cohen made another costly rookie mistake early on in the game when he let the ball bounce on a punt instead of making an easy fair catch. Every time the Bears gained some sort of momentum they were set back by penalties, dropped balls, turnovers, or other miscues. Carson Wentz continued his 7 game streak of at least 2 touchdowns as he completed 23-36 passes for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns. As the Bears have now lost their fourth straight game, fans can only wonder how long head coach John Fox has left in Chicago before he's sent packing.
