    Week 12: Bears 55 Eagles 31

    The Chicago Bears put in their best performance since the mid-season ownership change, coming up with a crucial home victory over the Eagles and their explosive passing offense.

    The Bears shocked themselves by leading 24-7 at the end of the first quarter, on the back of some good QB play by Jay Cutler and 3 Philly turnovers. First, Matt Forte found room on a screen and raced 26 yards for the first TD of the game. After forcing and recovering a fumble on defense, Cutler connected with Devin Hester for another score from 20 yards. Danieal Manning would then pick 6 Kevin Kolb from 37 yards for yet another TD and when Zackary Bowman got an interception of his own to set up a field goal, Chicago lead 24-0 after 6:58 of play. The Eagles got on the board with a 66 yard TD pass to DeSean Jackson to end the quarter.

    More of the same in the second, Cutler throwing his 3rd and 4th TD passes to Desmond Clark and Hester, Philly again scoring at the end of the half on a 20 yard catch by Marques Colston. 38-14 at halftime.

    Both teams would score 17 points in the second half, Chicago running the ball on almost every play and Philly doing the opposite. Matt Forte scored twice, on runs of 80 and 2 yards, Jackson made another long TD play of 75 yards and LeSean McCoy ran into the endzone from 1 yard out. Both teams kicked a field goal to make the final score of 55-31 in the Bears favour.

    Jay Cutler was very good in limited action for the Bears, going 9/13 for 147 yards and 4 TD's without an interception. Forte controlled the second half, rushing 30 times for 181 yards and 2 TD's, and also caught a pass for a TD.

    For the Eagles, DeSean Jackson was a deep threat all day, finishing with 3 catches for 166 yards and 2 scores.

    GG Vishal, gl the rest of the season and in the playoffs.
