Wentz solid again as Eagles beat Bears

Jenkins said the Eagles had talked about protesting during the season opener, but decided against it because they didn’t want to take away attention from the 15th anniversary of 9/11. He even got a shout out from President Barack Obama during a rally for Hillary Clinton in Philadelphia this past week. “But again, it was a football game, and we came out with a win”.

Even though he played two more offensive series after the fumble, Cutler watched Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham step in front of an underthrown pass intended for Alshon Jeffery another 10 yards up the field and made a decision to exit and begin treatment in the locker room. It’s hard to rule them out after two weeks.

“It’s something we don’t talk much about; we do talk about ball security and all of that”, Pederson said.

Osweiler made a big throw to preserve the Texans’ victory with less than four minutes to go in the game. Absolutely not. But are we working every single day to meet it? “So we’ve got to take a look at it and whatever is bothering us on offence we’ve got to get it fixed”. Aside from Wentz, Ryan Matthews looked good, as did Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor and the defense looks pretty scary up front. He showed impressive strength and balance on his first TD, a 3-yard run in the third quarter.

Will the Eagles wind up regretting the Sam Bradford trade? Details for Monday night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears are below.

The Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) defeated the Cleveland Browns, 29-10, last week in which rookie quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 278 yards and two TDs in 22-for-37 passes.

The Bears had possession for only one play.

The Eagles are going to enter the game on the road a slight underdog, but the Birds are going to try to keep momentum going after a strong win in week 1. Cutler said he aggravated the thumb injury earlier in the game and “couldn’t really grip the ball”, which he said contributed to him to throwing an interception to Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham with 36 seconds left in the third quarter.

Brian Hoyer took over for Cutler and was 9 of 12 for 78 yards.

Meanwhile, the Eagles enter Monday’s game with a record of 1-0. He hit Burton on a 2-yard touchdown pass on the first play after the turnover.

This will only be the second time Ertz has missed a game since being drafted in 2013. The Eagles defensive pass rush has to help the Birds defense Cutler and his receivers.

“That was huge”, Wentz said.
