It’s game day in South Philly for the first time in nearly a month as the Eagles return from a three-game road trip to face the Bears at Lincoln Financial Field.
Here’s how you watch and/or stream:
Date: Sunday, November 3rd, 2019
Start Time: 1:00 PM EST
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Venue: Lincoln Financial Field
The last time the Eagles were in their friendly confines, they throttled the hapless Jets. But the good vibes from that victory were quickly squelched by a pair of embarrassing road defeats. A win last week against the Bills revived some hope for the Eagles, but the Bears and their defense present a real test.
Here’s everything you need to get ready for the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears in Week 9 of the NFL season (except for the tickets).
Can the Philadelphia Eagles extend their winning streak to two games? Can the Chicago Bears‘ offense help their defense out a little and finally gain some traction in Philly’s home stadium, Lincoln Financial Field? Can Mitch Trubisky answer the critics? Can Carson Wentz regain the MVP form that made him a star in 2017?
Those are just a few of the questions that are being asked as Week 9’s game nears.

I feel really good about the Philadelphia Eagles’ chances of beating the Chicago Bears today and I think that’s a little strange.
It was just last week when the Eagles were coming off two straight blowout losses heading into Buffalo. The Eagles’ win over the Bills was decisive, yes, but it wasn’t a performance that erased all previous doubts about this team.
And yet, again, I just feel really good about the Eagles today.
Getting key players back from injury — hello there, DeSean Jackson — is certainly a big reason for optimism. The Eagles’ wide receiver “production” has been so abysmal without No. 10 on the field. It’s unclear just how effective Jackson will be but at the very least his mere presence is more threatening than having Mack Hollins out there. Carson Wentz had a real great chemistry with Jackson prior to the veteran’s injury so I imagine we’ll see them connect at some point.
Another reason why I feel so good about this game has nothing to do with the Eagles and everything to do with the Bears. More specifically, Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears’ starting quarterback has basically been a disaster this season. It’s hardly like the Eagles’ defense is impervious to getting shredded but I’d be shocked if Trubisky carves them up. The Eagles’ secondary figures to be stabilized with Ronald Darby, Jalen Mills, and Avonte Maddox all playing at cornerback. Much more importantly, Philly’s pass rush has been coming on in recent weeks. They should be able to pressure Trubisky into a turnover or two.
Philadelphia has owned the Bears as of late, including that hearbreaking loss in the NFC Wild Card game. The Eagles have won 10 of the last 14 games. However, the Bears, lead the overall series 30-15-1.
The Bears hope to keep the running game going. Last week, rookie running back David Montgomery ran for 135 years on 27 carries. He ranks No. 2 among rookie backs, behind Josh Jacobs, with 366 years and three touchdowns.
