Today at 4:15 p.m. Lincoln Financial Field TV: Fox29 Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 5 1/2 How They Match Up Eagles defense vs. Bears offense The Bears are 1-2 since Brian Griese replaced Rex Grossman as the starting quarterback, but they have been far more explosive on offense. With Grossman under center, the Bears scored two offensive touchdowns - one passing - in their first three games. With Griese, the offense has scored eight touchdowns in the last three games, including seven via the air. The Bears' passing offense also has climbed from 30th to 20th in the league rankings over the last three games.

The Chicago Bears captured the NFL championship yesterday, rolling up the most lopsided score in the history of the Super Bowl to defeat the New England Patriots, 46-10, in Super Bowl XX in New Orleans. Quarterback Jim McMahon and an intimidating defense led the Bears to victory before a crowd of 73,818 at the Superdome and a national television audience estimated at more than 110 million, and they touched off a celebration among Chicago's long-suffering fans. McMahon, who was in the news more than any other player during the preceding week, rushed for two touchdowns and set up several other Chicago scores with his passing.

There was quite some hulla-Belew raised by The Bears at the Chestnut Cabaret on Tuesday night. This unassuming quartet, led by one of rock's pre- eminent guitarists, Adrian Belew, demonstrated aggressive and accomplished musicianship. Belew, who is best known for his work with Talking Heads and King Crimson, has primarily confined himself to arty realms. His union with these little- known former members of Cincinnati's The Raisins finds him entering full- force into mainstream rock.

CHICAGO - Jay Cutler threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall and Robbie Gould kicked field goals of 39 and 21 yards as the Bears defeated the Detroit Lions, 13-7, on Monday night. The 5-1 Bears solidified their spot atop the NFC North, while the last-place Lions (2-4) lost for the fourth time in five games. Cutler completed 16 passes in 31 attempts for 150 yards. He also sent a scare through the Bears when, midway through the second quarter, he was slammed to the ground on a sack by Ndamukong Suh. Cutler was on the ground for a few minutes and was attended to by a team trainer before jogging off the field.

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of the spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts soon happens to man. - Chief Seattle, 1853 In the 1980s, poachers trafficking in bear parts illegally killed about 310 of the 500 black bears that roamed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Operation Smoky, a joint federal-state undercover operation, put a stop to the slaughter - at least temporarily. The grizzly bear is even more at risk from its interactions with man: Where about 100,000 once roamed the American West, only 1,000 remain south of the Canadian border, threatened not just by illegal hunting but by the encroachments of mining, logging, ranching and recreational activities.

He doesn't have the mobility he had before his '06 knee injury, so it's more important than ever that he make quick decisions and get the ball out.

After spotting Hershey a 3-0 lead, the Phantoms roared back to beat the Bears, 5-3, in an AHL game last night at the Giant Center. After Chad Anderson got the Phantoms on the board in the second period, Boyd Kane scored back-to-back power-play goals to tie the score, 3-3. Defenseman Martin Grenier scored his first goal of the season five minutes into the final period to give the Phantoms their first lead of the night, and Jared Ross scored...

The Hershey Bears beat the Phantoms, 3-1, last night at the Giant Center, leaving them clinging to a one-point lead in the AHL East. The Phantoms are 41-25-3-3 for 88 points. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton has 87 points, and Albany has 86. Starting goalie Scott Munroe had to leave the game in the first period because of an unspecified injury. He was replaced by Michael Teslak, who joined the Phantoms from Michigan Tech last week. The Phantoms' Jonathan Matsumoto scored on a third-period power play.

The Hershey Bears got goals from four different players and defeated the Phantoms, 4-1, Saturday. Bob Needham scored his first AHL goal to put the Bears in front, 1-0, at 15:42 of the second period. Just over three minutes later, Christian Matte fired his 16th of the year past Phantoms goalie Brian Boucher. Rob Shearer's power play goal at 10:38 of the final period extended Hershey's lead to 3-0. Exactly two minutes later, Mike Gaul's power play score made it 4-0. The opening period was scoreless, and the Bears had a goal disallowed because of too many men on the ice at 7:37 of the middle period.

The Chicago Bears took another step toward leaving town, suspending negotiations over the city's proposed $156 million renovation of Soldier Field. Talks scheduled yesterday to discuss personal seat licenses at the aging lakefront stadium, an arrangement that would require fans to pay for the right to buy tickets, were canceled. Mayor Richard Daley's plan would not give the team enough revenue and would not provide an "NFL-caliber stadium," Bears vice president of operations Ted Phillips said.

ONCE AGAIN, just as in Carson Wentz's debut, the throws were strong and solid, but they weren't the gist of the story. Last week in this space we discussed decision-making. The rookie quarterback, with eight days to prepare after being elevated to starter from third string, handled reading protections and calling audibles like he'd done all this before, which he had, albeit at North Dakota State. This week, Wentz's poise was even more impressive, Wentz having to navigate the noise and confusion of a hostile stadium.

Carson Wentz gave a look of frustration and arched his back before popping up and slapping his hands. The Eagles quarterback had just stared down the barrel of the blitzing Jerrell Freeman and delivered a BB to Brent Celek for a 19-yard gain. He took a tremendous shot. But the effort was all for naught. Eagles center Jason Kelce was called for holding and the pass was negated. Wentz had every reason to be upset, but in retrospect he probably wouldn't have been as demonstrative when he learned of Kelce's penalty.

Carson Wentz UP - He followed up his impressive debut with another outing that showed he has the chops. Too bad his teammates let him down one time too many. Wentz also needs to do a better job of protecting himself. The extra effort is admirable but not worth possible injury. Doug Pederson UP - He dialed up another solid game plan. It was pass heavy, but the Eagles couldn't run the ball and the Bears were almost daring Pederson to drop Wentz on every play.

CHICAGO - Alshon Jeffery stopped for a moment, then he went. Jalen Mills stayed, just for a moment. But a moment, for a rookie cornerback covering an elite receiver, can feel like an eternity. And when the ball settled in the arms of the Bears' star receiver 49 yards later, the Eagles rookie flailing around his hips, it had that feeling of one of those long days that so often hounded your 2015 season. You remember? The embarrassing loss to Tampa? The embarrassing loss to Detroit a week later?

CHICAGO - Playing almost in the shadow of the Roosevelt University auditorium where he first donned an Eagles jersey on draft night, 144 days earlier, Carson Wentz wrote another chapter of a story that is moving beyond Philadelphia, toward the top of the national NFL narrative. Wentz got little help from a wooden-handed receiving corps or an offensive line that showed a knack for ill-timed penalties. He did get help from the Bears, who turned the ball over three times in the second half, fueling a 29-14 Eagles' victory.

CHICAGO - It took the Eagles 21 seconds Monday night to turn a two-point lead into a 15-point advantage, and it might have only taken two weeks for the Eagles to turn Philadelphia fans into believers about a team that entered the 2016 season with few expectations but is now 2-0 with two convincing victories. The Eagles sent the Soldier Field crowd to the exits  early with a 29-14 win over the Chicago Bears, and have outscored opponents by 58-24 to start the season. Doug Pederson became the first Eagles coach to win his first two games since Nick Skorich in 1961, and quarterback Carson Wentz became the fifth rookie passer to win the first two games of the season since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970.

Jalen Mills knows he will be a target on Monday. A seventh-round draft pick who is expected to receive significant playing time, Mills will be matched up against the Chicago Bears' top wide receivers. Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will likely look in his direction - and by the end of the night, it will be clear whether the Eagles' confidence in Mills is valid. "He showed up ready, to be honest," safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "At least in his mind. I think that's the biggest thing on the outside as a corner: You've got to have really tough skin and a lot of confidence.

EAGLES QUARTERBACK Carson Wentz and his coaches talked this week about blocking out the noise - not getting caught up in the hoopla surrounding Wentz's excellent debut last week against the Cleveland Browns. Monday night, that concern becomes literal, as Wentz faces his first NFL road game, in front of 61,500 fired-up Chicago Bears fans in the national spotlight of Monday Night Football. Wentz told reporters last week that up until now, the loudest, most hostile crowd he has encountered was at the University of Montana, where he and the North Dakota State Bison lost, 38-35, in their 2015 opener, a loss they avenged later on, en route to the Bison's fifth successive FCS title.

Carson Wentz's second game will be more difficult than his first. The Bears have more talent than the Browns, and Wentz must introduce a silent snap count to combat the difficult road environment he'll experience at Soldier Field. Also, he's playing without reliable tight end Zach Ertz. That makes Monday's game a good test for Wentz, who is trying to become the fifth rookie quarterback to start 2-0 since 1970. Wentz will need to rely on his wide receivers in their matchup against the Bears secondary.

BEARS (-3) over Eagles Carson Wentz is the next Tom Brady , or at least Aaron Rodgers . . . Doug Pederson reminds everyone of Bill Belichick , or at least Pete Carroll . . . OK. Stop. Look at me. Look right in my eyes. They played the Cleveland Browns, the most inept team in the NFL. Of course, 1-0 is sweet, but let's hold on to the Hall of Fame ballot for a few more weeks. Also, we need to see whether the Birds' "D" is actually better than last year's unit, which was - ugh!
