The Big NFL gamne this week is...  Bet on it! The Chicago Bears were one of the most surprising teams in the NFL this season, led by a new coach, a great defense and the surprising play of Mitchell Trubisky.

The Philadelphia Eagles, on the other hand, are the defending Super Bowl champions that seem to be enjoying the mojo of Nick Foles once again. The Eagles snuck through the back door into the playoffs, and there is arguably no hotter team in the NFL right now.

Sunday's game between the Eagles and the Bears is one of the most intriguing of the week. Will Foles and the Eagles be able to continue their strong play? How will the relatively inexperienced Bears team look in the playoffs? How will Trubisky play against a fairly tough Eagles defense? How will Foles deal with Khalil Mack and the Bears' defense?


Let's take a look at the betting odds for Sunday's game, courtesy of Bet365:

Odds Subject to Change

Philadelphia Eagles, +6.5, 1.90
Chicago Bears, -6.5, 1.90


Over 41.5 Points, 1.90
Under 41.5 Points, 1.90

Eagles to Win Straight Up, 3.20
Bears to Win Straight Up, 1.37


The Bears like to spread the ball around on offense, using Tarik Cohen and Jordan Howard in the backfield while splitting up Trubisky's receptions.

The Eagles like a truly talented running back, so they will likely look to air the ball out more, which will certainly be difficulty given the ferocity of the Bears' defense.

This game should be a true chess match between two talented teams and two talented coaches. In my opinion, this is the game of the week.
