2. Jay's interceptions: Jay Cutler came in with a league-high 17 interceptions, including five in last week's 10-6 loss to the 49ers. Last night, going against a team that had 15 picks this season, he threw just one. But it was during a critical drive as time was running out with the Bears at their own 37.
3. Eagles' third-down defense: The Eagles came into the game ninth in the league in third-down defense, but had struggled lately. In their last three games before last night, opponents had converted 46.1 percent of their third-down opportunities. But the Eagles clamped down on the Bears, who converted just three of 16.
4. The real McCoy: With Brian Westbrook out after suffering another concussion, the spotlight was on rookie LeSean McCoy. He played well in the three previous games Westbrook had missed, averaging 5.0 yards per carry in those games. Last night, he had 20 carries for 99 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
5. The longest yards: The Eagles are among the league leaders in big plays. They had 38 plays of 20 or more yards entering last night. But they hadn't been nearly as successful lately with shorter distances. In their back-to-back losses to the Cowboys and Chargers, they converted just one of seven third downs of 2 yards or less. Last night, they had three such situations. Michael Vick ran 34 yards for a first down on third-and-1. Vick handed off to LeSean McCoy, who rumbled for 3 yards on third-and-2, and Donovan McNabb got a yard on a third-and-1 play. However, McNabb threw a pick on a third-and-3, and got sacked on a third-and-4.
