All statistics and snap counts are taken directly from the NFL's Game Statistic and Information System.

I’d like to say that game really pissed me off, but it went about as I expected it would. The Philadelphia Eagles are a damn good football team and the Chicago Bears aren’t. I would have liked to seen a little more fight from the Bears, but they were clearly out-manned and unfortunately, they were out-coached too.

As Bears fans we can only hope a regime change can jump-start the rebuild and get the Bears on the same track as the Eagles. Philly fired head coach Chip Kelly with one game remaining in the 2015 season, and they hired Doug Pederson the following off-season. He went 7-9 with rookie quarterback Carson Wentz under center, and this year the Eagles are one of the best teams in the league, and Wentz is an MVP candidate.

But as to yesterday’s game, the numbers were about as lopsided as you’d expect. The Eagles had the edge in first downs 24 to 8. They held the yardage edge 420 to 140. They were 7 for 16 (44%) on third down conversions, while the Bears were 3 for 13 (23%). On fourth downs they were 3 for 4 while the Bears were 0 for 2. The time of possession was 37:08 to 22:52 in favor of the Eagles.

I was shocked at one stat however. The Bears weren’t penalized as often as the Eagles. It was 9 for 56 yards for Chicago and 11 for 70 for Philly. Yay...

Now on to the snap counts and some other stats for the Bears

All snap counts will be in the following format:
Player - Total O or D snaps (%) - Total ST snaps (%)

QB

M Trubisky - 55 (100%)

Mitchell Trubisky was bad. He was 17 of 33 for 147 yards, with 2 interceptions and a 38.3 passer rating. Chicago couldn’t run, the score was lopsided, so the Eagles knew that Trubisky was going to throw. As soon as Philadelphia made the Bears one dimensional, it was over for the rookie QB. That’s what good teams do to young quarterbacks.

But he’ll learn from this loss.

OL

C Leno - 55 (100%) - 2 (9%)

K Long - 55 (100%) - 2 (9%)

B Massie - 55 (100%) - 2 (9%)

C Whitehair C- 55 (100%)

B Sowell - 40 (73%) - 2 (9%)

J Sitton - 15 (27%) - 1 (4%)

Not one of their finer games. Philadelphia’s D had 7 tackles for loss, 5 quarterback hits and 2 sacks. Chicago running backs averaged -0.6 yards per carry.

Also in case you missed it, Josh Sitton left the game with a concussion.

WR

D Inman - 51 (93%)

T McBride - 43 (78%)

K Wright - 42 (76%)

M Wheaton - 5 (9%)

TE

D Brown - 30 (55%) - 11 (48%)

D Sims - 20 (36%) - 1 (4%)

A Shaheen - 17 (31%) - 8 (35%)

After being promised that rookie Adam Shaheen wouldn’t see a decrease in playing time, he saw a a decrease in playing time. He caught his lone target for 1 yard.

Dion Sims had one catch for -3 yards and Daniel Brown caught 2 (3 targets) for 20.

It was a rough day for Vic Fangio’s undermanned defense. They allowed Wentz to rack up a 109.4 passer rating and they allowed Philly’s running game to average 5.3 yards per carry.

For more numbers, the ESPN box score and team stats are both pretty good ones to check out for all of the game’s statistics.

Did any of these numbers stand out to you guys?
