Although the 3-7 Chicago Bears have beaten good teams like the 7-3 Carolina Panthers and 8-2 Pittsburgh Steelers this year, they will come into Philadelphia to face the Eagles as 14-point underdogs.
As we noted in our five matchups to watch, the Bears have a strong running game that they'll stick to even when they are down on the scoreboard. The Bears run the ball on 48.2 percent of their plays, which is second-most in the NFL. That plays right into the strength of the Eagles' defense, who still have the top-ranked run defense in the NFL, allowing just 71.0 rushing yards per game. The Eagles also come into this game unhappy that they gave up over 100 rushing yards to the Dallas Cowboys, even with a blowout win.
The Eagles have lost a number of players for the season on injured reserve, but they list just two players on their injury report for this matchup. The Bears, meanwhile, have also lost a number of players on the season on IR, however, they come into this matchup with 13 players listed on their injury report. You can find the full injury report here.
As noted above, the point spread for this game is 14. It opened earlier in the week at 12.5, which means that the majority of the money is being put on the Eagles to cover. Our staff of writers all see emphatic Eagles victories.
For the gambling degenerates, here are our Week 12 picks.
