Eagles Vs Bears: Eagles Surge Back To Take 24-17 Lead

More Bears mistakes have led to more Eagles points and more LeSean McCoy magic have made way for the Eagles first lead of the game. The Eagles opened up the second half with a methodical 15 play, 80 yard drive that culminated in a four yard Ronnie Brown TD to tied the game at 17-17.

The Bears started the ensuing drive off well handing off to Matt Forte who was getting big yardage... but for the second time tonight, Forte fumbled and the Eagles recovered. LeSean McCoy would make him play with a blistering 33 yard TD run to put the Eagles up 24-17. Check out the video as McCoy just makes a Bears defender look silly, then turns on the jets....

After not fumbling all season and going 347 touches without putting the ball on the carpet, Forte has lost two tonight that have led to 14 Eagles points. Eagles lead 24-7 with a little over a minute to go in the third quarter.
