Eagles vs. Bears 2016: Game Time, TV Schedule, Online Streaming, Channel, Odds and More
The Philadelphia Eagles 2016 NFL schedule continues this week as the team is set to play the Chicago Bears in a Monday Night Football game. The Eagles are trying to stay undefeated after getting off to a 1-0 start by beating the Browns last week.
Everyone is interested to see what Carson Wentz can do in Chicago after looking very impressive in his first NFL start. The Wentz hype has been running high this week. The 23-year-old quarterback won Rookie of the Week honors, saw his jersey instantly become a top-seller, and even got a shout-out from President Barack Obama.
The Bears should provide more of a challenge for Wentz than the Browns’ defense did. Chicago defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will look to make the Eagles’ rookie quarterback uncomfortable. Wentz will be without one of his primary targets as starting tight end Zach Ertz has been ruled out for the game. The Eagles will likely have to rely more heavily upon intriguing backup Trey Burton in the passing attack.
Philadelphia’s defense will be a little short-handed in this game. Starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin is out. That leaves the Eagles with three healthy corners on the roster. Ron Brooks is expected to start in the base defense while Jalen Mills will play on the outside when Brooks shifts inside in nickel and dime packages. The Eagles’ secondary will be tested by veteran quarterback Jay Cutler and talented pass catcher Alshon Jeffrey.
