Sunday NFL Football Analysis: With their 2013 playoff hopes on the line, the Bears and Eagles both need wins on Sunday night football to boost their chances.  Each of these teams have significant advantages against one another and which ever team can exploit their match ups will likely be the one that wins this game.  The Eagles secondary gets back Brandon Boykin and Brandon Wolff which should boost a pass coverage unit that needs it.  The problem is, it wasn’t a stellar group to deal with and with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Early Bennett coming to town they will need to be at the top of their game against one of the best receiving units in the NFL.   When the Eagles have the ball, LeSean McCoy will be the primary focus.  He has more yards and touchdowns on red zone touches than any other team this season.  If the Eagles don’t fall behind and stay committed to the ground game he should have a big game against one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL.  The Bears defense should get a big boost with the return of Lance Briggs, their captain line backer who will help slow down the Eagles running attack, even in a limited role.  The other key player in this game is Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.  Since his amazing start he has fallen back to earth a little.  It’s still too early in his career to guess what he will do in the prime time spot light but the bears don’t have a fearsome pass rush any more.  If Philadelphia can stick with the ground game, Foles won’t have to be great to pull out a victory.  In a game where each team has such a distinct advantage on one side of the ball, we give the advantage to the home team with the better running game.  If the wrong Jay Cutler shows up and commits a few turnovers especially early in the game it could be a long night for the Bears defense as they try to slow down McCoy when Philadelphia has the lead.

Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles Game Prediction: 30-21 Philadelphia
What to expect in this week 16 NFL Football match up: This game will be decided by which team can make fewer mistakes and with Jay Cutler back at quarterback for Chicago, we expect them to make more mistakes especially playing on the road.  If the Eagles have learned anything from their big loss at Minnesota last weekend, it’s that they need to stay committed to the run from start to finish and against a Bears defense that is one of the worst in the league at stopping the run, they should stay with it even longer.  If the Eagles can score first and get a lead, they should never look back agianst Chicago on Sunday Night Football.
