New, comments

The Chicago Bears travel to the City Of Brotherly Shove this evening to take on the Eagles. Please join us to discuss this game or any of the other happenings around the NFL today.

The Eagles enter tonight's game needing momentum going in to next weeks match-up against the Dallas Cowboys. With the Cowboys win today next weeks game will be for the NFC East title no matter if the Eagles win or lose. Even knowing that his team does not need this victory to win the division, Chip Kelly has stated that he will not sit his starters this evening with his sights firmly on getting his team back to “winning football”. The Eagle lost last week to the Vikings after having ripped off 5 straight.

The Bears need a win this evening, the Packers to lose and the Giants to win over the Lions today to claim their divisional crown in the NFL North. If only the Lions take a loss in today's match-ups then the game next week against the Packers will be for all the marbles. The Bears enter tonight's game following the return of starting quarterback Jay Cutler last week. The Bears are also coming off of a victory last week over the Cleveland Browns, 38 to 31.
