Bears survive Forte fumbles for 3rd straight win

PHILADELPHIA — Sloppy performances and poor communication plagued the Bears in their two previous road games.

They struggled to get out of their own way in losses in New Orleans and Detroit, setbacks that put them in a hole during the first half of the season. But the improvements since then — and the benefit of a week off — showed Monday at raucous Lincoln Financial Field on a gorgeous evening for football.

Facing the high-powered Eagles offense led by Michael Vick, a player they've corralled in the past, the 8-point underdog Bears made enough plays to pull out a 30-24 victory, improving to 5-3 and keeping them in the thick of the NFC playoff race.

The Bears are now 4-0...
