Bears force Eagles 3+ turnovers for second time in season

Share

The Bears' defense forced the Eagles into three turnovers on Sunday, making it just the second time the Eagles have recorded three or more turnovers in a game this season, according to the FOX Sports broadcast. 

The only other instance the Eagles gave up the ball 3+ times in a game was against the Washington Commanders during Week 10. The Eagles fumbled three times and Jalen Hurts threw one interception. 

On Sunday, Hurts threw a rare two interception passes to rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon and veteran Deandre Houston-Carson. Later in the game, Gordon recovered a fumble coughed up by running back Miles Sanders.

The Bears capitalized on one of the turnovers, as Fields threw a touchdown to David Montgomery in the third quarter after the fumble recovery. The Bears shortened the lead after the touchdown, closing the gap to 17-13. 

Matt Eberflus' defense has stepped up to keep the league's best offense from running away with the game. Last week, the Eagles went for 48 points against the New York Giants. Their offense is averaging 29.7 points per game this season, the best mark in the NFL.
