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 - For a little while there Monday night, it was déjà vu all over again. On their very first possession, the Eagles went tempo. Or at least a slow version of it. They went no-huddle on their first five plays. They came out in a three-wide receiver set with running back Darren Sproles moving all over the formation, and rookie quarterback Carson Wentz picked up where he left off last Sunday against Cleveland. A 9-yard completion to Nelson Agholor, then another 9-yard pass to Dorial Green-Beckham for a first down.

CHICAGO - It has been a little more than a month since Colin Kaepernick began his vague and clumsy protest of police brutality against blacks and the government's apparent indifference toward it. Monday night, the Eagles finally jumped on board. Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins led the Eagles' demonstration. Jenkins, cornerback Ron Brooks and defensive end Steven Means stood side-by-side with raised fists as the national anthem played. A few players down the line, defensive end Marcus Smith joined in. Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he would participate in any team-wide protest, but this protest was decidedly not team-wide.

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.

CHICAGO - Good defenses beat up on bad offenses. Great ones shut down even the best of their opposition. The Eagles are far from knowing whether they are the latter, but Monday night's 29-14 domination of the Bears proved that Jim Schwartz's unit is legit. You don't hold an offense - even one as suspect as the Bears' - to seven points at home without being genuine. You don't force three turnovers without having opportunistic talent. And you don't sack Jay Cutler three times and knock him out of the game without an aggressive defensive front.

CHICAGO - Sunday, three Miami Dolphins protested during the national anthem before their game at New England, as five San Francisco 49ers joined quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protest at Carolina and a pair of Tennessee Titans raised their fists before playing in Detroit. In Denver, linebacker Brandon Marshall took a knee for the second week in a row. Monday night, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins plans to add his name to the protest narrative Kaepernick started last month, Jenkins planning some sort of gesture when the anthem is played before the Bears host the Birds, the Eagles' defensive leader said over the weekend.

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.

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.

THE EAGLES and Lane Johnson have accepted the prospect that Johnson will reportedly serve a suspension for violating the NFL policy against performance-enhancing drugs. They've been ready for more than a month. It was early August when word got out that Johnson had failed a PED test and was subject to a 10-game suspension as a second-time offender. On Monday night, the Eagles will play the Chicago Bears in the second game of the season, with Johnson scheduled to start at right tackle.
