Bears Vs. Eagles Score Update: Matt Forte Fumbles, Bears Answer Back

For as well as the Chicago Bears' defense played in the first half of their Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles, it would have registered as a major disappointment had the half ended in a tie at 10-10. That looked like it was going to be the case after Matt Forte fumbled and corner Brian Rolle took it in for a 22-yard Eagles touchdown. The Bears would catch a break, though, when Eagles receiver Desean Jackson fumbled a punt late in the quarter to give the Chicago the opportunity for another score.

The Bears would capitalize.

After a Philadelphia penalty extended the drive, backup Bears running back Marion Barber punched it in for a two-yard touchdown run. That's where we're at now: Bears 17, Eagles 10.
