BEARS Score TD Late, Down Eagles 19-16

With 9 seconds left in the game, Brian Griese connects with Mushin Muhammad to move the Bears to 3-4.  That along with a Dallas Cowboys victory over the Minnesota Vikings and the Bears avoid the cellar of the NFC North.

Say what you want about Brian Griese and what he may or may not be able to do when it comes to going long and his ability to win the big game, but he is showing something throwing for his second straight 300 yard game (322).  He added 1 TD and kept away from the dreaded pick.

Six receivers had 3 or more catches, including Muhammad who was tied for team high with Desmond Clark with 5 for 79 yards and Chicago's only TD.

Again, Cedric Benson's numbers fail to inspire carrying 17 times for 49 yards and a 2.7 average.

After being questioned all week about his back and his playing level, Urlacher had a big ol Windy City FU totally 12 tackles with 8 solos.

Harris had 2 sacks while Arch had one.

Robbie Gould was 4/5 kicking.

The Bears next week again play the Lions.  If the boys can't get up for this one after the Lions utterly embarrassed them in the 4th quarter last game, just call the season and play for the draft pick.
