The Sun-Times’ experts offer their picks for the Bears’ game at the Eagles:
The Bears are reeling, having lost three straight games and coming off a brutal, self-inflicted loss to the Chargers. It’s not that the Eagles are all that good. It’s that the Bears aren’t, that the game is being played in hostile territory and that Mitch Trubisky still will have to throw the ball. Season: 4-3.
It’s kind of shocking to see the Bears as an underdog to a .500 team. But such is this season of dumbness and failure. Super Bowl dreams? Poof. How soon until we hitch our weak hopes to Chase Daniel? Season: 4-3.
The Bears haven’t played a true road game in six weeks, and this one is a doozy — they’ve lost their last two games at Lincoln Financial Field by a combined score of 85-14. Season: 4-3
Trubisky and the Bears’ offense took a step forward last week vs. the Chargers, but the Bears will need more than incremental progress to won on the road against an Eagles team that looked rejuvenated last week against the Bills. Season: 3-4.
The Bears might actually enjoy a warmer reception in Philly than they’ve been getting at Soldier Field. Inspired by all the brotherly love, they pull an upset and get back to .500 when Eddy Pineiro saves the day on a perfectly centered game-winning field goal. Season: 3-4.
