Despite losses by the Packers and Lions, which gave the Bears the opportunity to clinch the NFC North Sunday night, LeSean McCoy and the Philadelphia offense dominated an injury-plagued Chicago Bears defense, mostly scoring at-will in front of a national audience.
Final score: 54-11
Jay Cutler: 20/35, 222 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT (5 sacks)
Nick Foles: 21/25, 230 yds, 2 TD, 0 INT (2 sacks)
Matt Forte: 9 rushes, 29 yds
LeSean McCoy: 18 rushes, 133 yds, 2 TD
Bryce Brown: 9 rushes, 115 yds, 1 TD
The Bears are now in a position where they have to win versus Green Bay in Week 17 to clinch a playoff berth, and after what we saw tonight, you have to wonder how much they have left in the tank.
The defensive line was absolutely shredded all night long, being rendered helpless against the Eagles running game, and being ineffective in passing situations.
Granted, injuries have been an issue, but it's hard to imagine the Bears being a factor even if they clinch a post-season opportunity this season. The team is not in a good situation, and Aaron Rodgers cold be back in the fold for the final showdown at Soldier Field.
