The Bears had a three-phase win over the Eagles, giving them a 5-3 record and a spot in the wildcard race. Who stuck out?
Grizzly Bears -- the players who reminded us of Chicago's other great triumphs in Philly (Hi Flyers!):
Earl Bennett -- Oh, Earl. We missed you so much. We missed your connection with Jay Cutler. We missed your ability to reliably grab catches. We missed how you could have 95 yards and a touchdown in your first game back from an upper body injury.
Lance Briggs -- Did you see Briggs breathing heavy and looking dog-tired in the final seconds of the game? There was good reason for that. He kept the Eagles offense on the run all game long, finishing with five tackles, two pass deflections, and countless acts of intimidation.
Offensive line -- For the first time in 28 games, Jay Cutler was not sacked. The line, aided by tight ends Kellen Davis and Matt Spaeth, kept the QB upright and open holds for Forte and Marion Barber. Well done, gentlemen.
