Chicago Sun Times Reports D-Jax Costly Punt Return Fumble Forte Runs Over Featherless Eagles The Story of these Playoffs has been "Fumbles" The Bears continue to surprise 12th Man in this playoff run, just when everybody had them out in the WildCard game, they for sure thought the Packers were gonna send them packing. But after the convincing victory vs heavily favored Packers, they still doubted them. Well 12th Man if there is anything this Bears team does is Thrive when they count them out. This game was an epic game, and in the rain it sure was a wild one and it started like this. The Bears won the coin toss and elected to play defense first since they had never played Coache's Loren's Eagles before they wanted to see what they had in store. The Eagles had a good start mixing pass and more run, that is until the Bears started to play more run defense and decided to let QB Tann beat them with the pass. And it worked as they got close to midfield becuz their QB wasnt ready for the spotlight as he started making bad throws that continued thru out the game. The Eagles and Bears decided to swap punts for the first two possesions, but then The Eagles punted for their second time and in turn the Bears marched down the field mixing pass and more run also and ended up with 7. Bears 7 Eagles 0.But not so fast said the Eagles as D-Jax took an untouched kickoff return all the way to the house to quickly tie the Game. Bears 7 Eagles 7. The game kept on going back and forth with the Bears having the upper hand. With the score 21-10 in the closing minutes of the half, the Bears marh down to Eagle territory and it seemed as this game would be out of the Eagles hands before half. But Cutler play actioned inside the 20yrd line and after a holding flag came out as soon as Cutler released the ball, the rain made the ball wider then it supposed to be and a great user INT by the saftey gave the ball back to the Eagles with an openfield to return it for 6. But speedy WR Ford was able to catch him but not till he was in Bears redzone. A couples of run plays later the Eagles score 7. Half time Bears 21 Eagles 17. After half time the Bears got the ball but could not muster anything in what seemed to be a turn of events as the Eagles got the ball back and took the lead in the 3rd qrtr for the first 2nd time in the game. Bears 21 Eagles 24. Fast forward to the deciding qrtr The Bears started to play as they have all playoffs with nothing to loose mentality, and it paid off as they once more had the lead with about 3:30 left in the game with the score Bears 35 Eagles 31. The Bears had the ball, the Bears knew all they had to do was get firts downs and end this game. But unfurtunetly it didnt happen, as Cutler stepped back and got sacked for a fumble that luckily was recovered by the Bears on 3rd down around their own 30yrd line. This is something the BEars did not want, to loose a game again in the final minutes becuz they couldnt convert on downs. With under 3 minutes to go, the Bears punted to always dangerous D-Jax and as D-Jax started to make some moves, he got blind sided by LB Hayes and fumbled the ball, fb hill picked it up and thats what ended this game. couples of plays later Forte ran out most of the clock and got 7 to end the score at Bears 42 Eagles 31. Key stats: 3 fumbles recovered by the Bears, 2 INT's by the Eagles and 1 fumble. HB Forte 21att / 218 yrds / 4td'sHB Lewis 19att / 133 yrds / 2td's Great Game Loren, hell of a battle. McKoy being out was a big one here becuz the run game was going wild for both of us. And Forte man shit, he probably juiced up before the game lol cuz to scamper for a long run up the middle after he got hit at the L.O.S almost fell, jumped over a pile of people, got tipped over by a lb and still kept running. I was like WTF is up with him. Lol. But Good Luck to you moving forward and cya next season.
