With a 25-20 victory over the Chicago Bears, the Eagles overcome a slow start.

On Sunday, the struggling Chicago Bears were defeated 25-20 by the Philadelphia Eagles, led by Jalen Hurts, who ran for three touchdowns, tying a career high.

The Eagles, who have the best record in the NFL (13-1), made just enough plays to win in a way that was closer than expected.

Justin Fields of Chicago rushed for 95 yards to reach exactly 1,000 yards on the season. He joins Lamar Jackson and Michael Vick as the only quarterbacks who have rushed for 1,000 or more yards. Additionally, he established a QB's franchise single-season rushing record. Be that as it may, the Bears (3-11) lost their seventh consecutive game — their most terrible pallet since dropping eight in succession in 2002 to match an establishment record.

Hurts is also getting closer to making rusher history. He is one touchdown short of Cam Newton's 2011 rookie year NFL record of 13 rushing touchdowns.

Hurts finished the game with 61 rushing yards and 747 for the season. He additionally tossed for 315 yards, finishing 22 of 37 passes with two captures.

The Eagles' all-around quarterback ran for 22 yards and a 1-yard touchdown early in the third quarter, respectively, to make the score 17-6. Harms added another 1-yard score and ran in the 2-direct change with 4:20 left in the game toward put Philadelphia ahead 23-13. However, the Bears were not done yet.

Fields, who stumbled to the sideline on the previous possession and briefly left the game, scored a 35-yard touchdown on a wide-open Byron Pringle with 2:43 left to bring Chicago within five.

However, the Bears failed to recover the ball. On third-and-6, Hurts connected with A.J. Brown for 12 yards, giving Philadelphia time to run out the clock after the two-minute warning.

For 181 yards, Brown caught nine passes. Five receptions by DeVonta Smith yielded 126 yards.

Josh Sweat, Haason Reddick, and Javon Hargrave all had two sacks, which helped the Eagles get by after winning their previous two games by 51 points each.

In 1972, Fields ran for 968 yards as a quarterback, breaking Bobby Douglass' previous franchise record. Fields threw for 152 yards and two touchdowns, two weeks after throwing for a season-high 254 yards against Green Bay.

Chicago, which had not won since an unexpected victory against New England on Oct. 24, ran for a touchdown.

On the opening drive, Bears right guard Teven Jenkins was carted off the field with a neck injury. He was hurt blocking Montgomery's run. Chicago selected 24-year-old Jenkins in the second round of the 2021 draft. He remained face down. As he was treated by medical personnel, the sideline became empty, and players gathered in a semicircle to watch. Following a reception on the game's first drive, WR Equanimeous St. Brown left due to the concussion protocol. After suffering an injury while making a tackle early in the third quarter, LB Jack Sanborn (ankle) left. WR N'Keal Harry (back) was listed as questionable, so he didn't play.
