The Eagles are the hotter team right now, but they’re also pretty banged up with running back Brian Westbrook and TE L.J. Smith expected to miss the game Sunday night. The Bears choked away wins in Carolina and at home last week against Tampa, but they’re also incredibly tough to beat at home. The defense will look to bounce back and without the threat of Westbrook to stop, Chicago can focus on shutting down quarterback Donovan McNabb (also banged up) and the Eagles’ passing game. As long as Bears’ quarterback Kyle Orton can survive Philly’s incredible pass rush, Chicago might sneak out an upset. We predict the Bears over the Eagles 13-10.
