McNabb, Eagles Beat Bears 24-20

By  | 

CHICAGO (AP) - Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles found a way to pull out a close win. They also hurt the Chicago Bears in the process.

McNabb threw for 244 yards against his hometown team, LeSean McCoy scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 10-yard run following Antonio Dixon's blocked field goal, and Philadelphia came away with a 24-20 victory over struggling Chicago on Sunday night after back-to-back close losses.

The Bears were leading 20-17 when Dixon blocked a 48-yard field goal by Robbie Gould with 11 minutes left. McNabb then led the Eagles (6-4) on a 62-yard touchdown drive that McCoy capped with a neat 10-yard run, sending Chicago to its fifth loss in six games and delivering another big hit to its playoff hopes.

Barring a big run, the Bears (4-6) will miss the postseason for
the third straight season - certainly not what they expected when
they made that big offseason trade with Denver for Jay Cutler.
