Vick has his first interception of the year, and although it wasn’t entirely his fault, it had a huge impact on the game. The Eagles were looking to take the lead, but the turnover kept them off the board and gave the Bears all the momentum.
Defensively, we saw the team give up a ton of big plays, not something they did a whole lot the rest of the year. A large contributor to these big plays was poor tackling. The team just couldn’t seem to bring ball carriers to the ground.
The defense also failed to force a turnover, something they had been doing consistently all season. Asante Samuel’s absence did not help the matter as the secondary struggled.
The special teams unit also struggled, allowing the Bears to have multiple long returns
