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.

He has taken some risks plus some wicked hits in result of those risks but most importantly, has learned from them. He makes this team so special.
