The Eagles are road favorites in this game as they have the better offense than the Bears. Chicago has the better defense but not many people believe that Vick and the Eagles can be stopped. The Eagles defense is also very good and they should be able to handle the Chicago offense.
#2 Offense vs. #1 Defense
The Eagles have the second best offense in the league in terms of points per game while the Bears have the best defense as they lead the league in fewest points allowed. Which unit will win on Sunday? The Eagles have not been stopped with Michael Vick at quarterback. The New York Giants slowed him down a little bit but still didn’t stop him. Chicago may be able to do a few things and they do have the home field advantage.
Jay Cutler vs. Philly Defense
While the spotlight will be on Vick and the Eagles against the Chicago defense the game might be decided on the other side of the ball with Chicago’s offense against the Eagles defense. Chicago has done just enough to win this season on offense but Cutler is still throwing a lot of interceptions and he gets sacked a lot. The Eagles defense puts a lot of pressure on opposing quarterbacks so this should be interesting to watch.
