Eagles- Bears: LeSean McCoy Puts Game Away | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
This was a hard hitting close game on Sunday night football but in the end the Eagles pulled out the victory.
McCoy and Jackson Put Game Away
The Eagles didn’t get much going on offense until the final quarter and a half of the game. In the third quarter Donovan McNabb hooked up with receiver DeSean Jackson for a 48-yard touchdown score to take the lead.
That lead didn’t last long as Jay Cutler drove down the field and scored a touchdown for the Bears.
In the fourth quarter, the Eagles put a drive together that finished with rookie running back LeSean McCoy scoring on a ten yard touchdown run. McCoy had a good night overall with twenty carries for 99 yards and a score.
Look for McCoy to continue as the feature running back in the Eagles attack for awhile.
Kahlil Bell Who?
The Bears picked up rookie Kahlil Bell for more depth in the running game and on his first career carry, he torched the Eagles for a 72 yard run. For the game Bell posted four carries for 81 yards as Matt Forte’s backup.
Forte, on the other hand, continued to struggle as he posted only 34 yards rushing on 14 carries. Even worse for fantasy football owners with Forte is that his reception totals were down to four catches for only twenty yards.
If Bell continues to run effectively than you will probably see him split more time with Forte as the season moves along.
This has been a very disappointing season for Forte, and it looks like the misery may only continue.
