Eagles Vs Bears: Matt Forte Draws Eagles Focus

Matt Forte has averaged 5.4 yards a carry this year, behind only LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson.

Monday night's game is going to be a treat for those of you who appreciate the run game in the NFL. In LeSean McCoy and Matt Forte, we'll be seeing two of the top five backs in the NFL squaring off against one another. Forte has averaged 5.4 yards a carry this year, behind only LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson. Plus, like McCoy, he's as big a threat catching the ball as he is running it.

So clearly, the Eagles are focused on #22. Jason Babin was asked about their strategy.

"Tackling and pursuit. I mean, he's a powerful runner and he's got some nice wiggle to him. So we really need to pursue the ball because there's going to be missed tackles, he's going to make some guys miss, but as long as we're all running and hunting we'll be there to take care of each other and have each other's backs."
