By The Numbers

Posted: November 29, 2010

* Michael Vick's streak of consecutive passes without an interception ended at 240 when Bears free safety Chris Harris picked off a tipped pass late in the first half. Vick had 211 attempts this season without an interception. His streak dated back to the 2006 season with the Falcons.

* The Bears' average starting position on their four touchdown drives was their 36-yard line.

* The Eagles are 4-2 against the Bears at Soldier Field under Andy Reid.

* As bad as the Eagles' red-zone offense has been, their red-zone defense isn't much better. The Bears converted three of four red-zone opportunities into TDs. For the season, opponents are 23-for-30 in the red-zone against the Eagles. The Birds are last in the league in red-zone defense.

* Through 11 games last season, the Eagles scored 293 points (26.6 per game). Through 11 games this year, they've scored 310 (28.1).

* The Eagles have scored 83 points in the first quarter in their seven wins. They've scored just six points in the first quarter in their four losses.

* The Eagles have won eight straight time-of-possession battles and nine of 11 this season. Last year, they finished 29th in the league in time of possession (28:15).

* LeSean McCoy, who rushed for 53 yards on 10 carries, has 151 rushing yards on his last 16 carries. That's 9.4 yards per carry.

* DeSean Jackson had just two receptions for 26 yards. In the 23 previous quarters he'd been on the field with Michael Vick, Jackson had 28 receptions for 581 yards and four TDs.

* Through 11 games last season, tight end Brent Celek had 54 receptions. Through 11 this season, he's got just 26. His TD catch against the Bears was just his third of the season and his first in six games.

* Jay Cutler's 146.2 passer rating against the Eagles was the highest rating of his career. The opponent passer rating against the Eagles in their first 10 games was 71.0.

* The Eagles committed just three penalties for 19 yards against the Bears. Both numbers are season-bests.
