EAGLES VS. BEARS FLEXED TO SUNDAY NIGHT-
The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears are waiting for Sunday night because the week 16 matchup was just flexed to Sunday night. The NFL announced Tuesday, the Eagles-Bears,December 22nd matchup will replace the New England Patriots- Baltimore Ravens matchup, which will move to 4:25pm ET on CBS.
The Eagles-Bears match up will put two of the league’s most explosive offenses on display in primetime. The Eagles have won five straight thanks to the hot hand of Quarterback Nick Foles who has thrown for 20TDs and 1 int in that span. Another big part to the Eagles success this season is NFL leading rusher LeSean Mccoy who recently set a franchise record with 217yds rushing in a game against the Lions. The 8-5 Eagles could potentially clinch the NFC East in this match up.
The Bears just like the Eagles have been riding the hot hand of a backup quarterback and for the Bears, it has been Josh McCown. McCown has thrown for 13 TDs and 1 Int since stepping in for the injured Jay Cutler. The Chicago Bears have two of the best Wide receiver duos in the league with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. The duo has 15 TDs combined on the season. The 7-6 Bears also could potentially clinch the NFC North in this match up.

While Jordan and Galette stood out with a combined five sacks Sunday night, Payton praised the entire defensive front and its depth for a strong showing against the pass.
Players like Akiem Hicks, John Jenkins and Parys Haralson all had key contributions in keeping constant pressure on Newton as well, Payton said.
"We have a good rotation going, it’s hard to play 60 snaps in there," Payton said. "Our starters are in great shape, but we really believe in getting a rotation going.
"Those are earned sacks when you get a guy like Cam Newton down. I thought we contained him real well. He held onto the ball at times, struggled with his progression and forced some throws. I think that is a credit to how the guys up front played."
Jordan ranks fourth in the NFL in sacks (11.5), and Galette is tied for 13th in sacks (9).
Tight end Jimmy Graham leads the league with 14 touchdown receptions this season. He also ranks 10th with 1,046 receiving yards.
