Eagles 16 – Bears 15
After a nail-biter of a game, the Philadelphia Eagles let out a breath of stunned excitement as they witnessed a missed field goal that would have ended their season. It was an ugly first half of football, with Chicago leading 6-3 at the break, but Philly returned a changed team.
Even with two early interceptions by Foles, this Eagles team didn’t give up. The defense kept them in the game all four quarters. Left tackle Jason Peters played a major factor in protecting his quarterback and helped the front line shut down linebacker Khalil Mack.
With under a minute left to play, Foles threw a 2-yard pass to receiver Golden Tate to take the late lead by just one point, and missing the two-point conversion, leaving enough of a chance for the Bears to try for a field goal.
