Monday Night Football Bears Eagles
November 7, 2011 by staff
Monday Night Football Bears Eagles, The Dream Team appears to have awaken from its early-season slumber. Fresh off by far their most impressive performance of what’s been an up-and- down season, the Philadelphia Eagles attempt to maintain the momentum when they host the Chicago Bears in a Monday night showdown between 2010 NFC division winners that are both riding two-game winning streaks.
Touted as a serious Super Bowl contender following an onslaught of high-profile free-agent signings during an active preseason, the Eagles resembled anything but after losing four of their first five games of this 2011 campaign. The defending NFC East champions have begun to live up to their advance billing as of late, however, by stringing together convincing victories over division members Washington and Dallas sandwiched around a Week 7 bye.
The Eagles were simply dominating in last Sunday’s clash with the rival Cowboys, with the NFL’s top-ranked offense piling up 495 total yards and a previously-maligned defense putting forth a shutdown effort in a 34-7 rout.
Philadelphia accumulated 239 rushing yards on Dallas, which entered the contest having allowed a league-low 69.7 yards per game on the ground, with emerging star running back LeSean McCoy gaining a career-best 185 on 30 carries and scoring two touchdowns. The third-year pro now tops all individuals in rushing yards per game (107.7 ypg), while the Eagles are first overall as a team in that category.
The Eagles had major problems stopping the run during their poor start, but have yielded a mere 127 rushing yards combined over the course of their two- game surge.
Philadelphia’s recent burst has kept the team from falling out of the conference playoff picture, though it still remains 2 1/2 games behind the New York Giants for first place in the NFC East heading into Monday’s tilt
