The Bears must be counting on saving their best for last when they host the Packers next Sunday at Soldier Field for the NFC North title.
With a chance to wrap up the title at Lincoln Financial Field against the Eagles, the Bears were at their absolute worst in front of a national television audience Sunday night. The Eagles blew them out, 45-11, scoring in every possible fashion — runs, passes, field goal and safety.They even added a pick-6 of Jay Cutler, who was lifted with 8 minutes left in the fourth quarter as the Bears trailed 47-11.
Cutler completed 20 of 35 passes for 222 yards and 1 TD. He was intercepted once and sacked five times.
Earlier in the day, the Bears (8-7) received the cooperation of the Lions (7-8), who dropped an overtime decision to the Giants.Then the Packers (7-7-1) lost at home to the Giants, 38-31.
The return of injured Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the field next Sunday has not yet been determined.
The Eagles (9-6) need to beat the Cowboys next weekend to win the NFC East.
