Eagles Look to Climb to .500 vs Bears

Hester a threat for the Bears

Both Chicago and Philadelphia will be looking for their third victory of the season when the Bears travel to Lincoln Financial Field to face the Eagles.  Chicago is coming off a disappointing 34-31 home loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week Six.  Brian Griese threw for 381 yards with three touchdowns and two picks but the defense continued to struggle against the run, allowing 311 yards and three TD’s on the ground.  The Bears ground game has also struggled, getting out-rushed by their opponents 805-to-496 so far this season.  The Eagles posted a 16-9 victory over the Jets last Sunday.  Brian Westbrook returned to the lineup for Philadelphia and rushed for 120 yards.  Donovan McNabb tossed for 278 yards and a touchdown.  Since 1999, the Eagles have posted five straight wins against the Bears, including a 19-9 victory the last time the teams met in 2004.
