Click here to give your grades on the Eagles' Monday night performance against the Bears:

RUSHING OFFENSE: LeSean McCoy rushed for just 33 yards on 9 carries in the first half, but turned it on in the third quarter, scoring on a 33-yard run with the help of some excellent blocking from left tackle Jason Peters. Ronnie Brown had a four-yard touchdown run.

Grade: B

PASSING OFFENSE: Mike Vick threw his third red-zone interception of the season in the second quarter after the Eagles drove to the Chicago 19.  The Bears turned it into a Robbie Gould field goal. Vick averaged just 5.6 yards per attempt and completed just 21 of 38 

Grade: C-minus

RUN DEFENSE: The Bears’ ground game gashed the Eagles for 60 yards on their first possession. They did a better job of slowing them down for a while, but Matt Forte finished with 133 rushing 

Grade: C-minus

PASS DEFENSE: The Eagles did a decent job on Jay Cutler early on, but he found his stride in the second half, throwing two touchdown passes. The Eagles did a poor job in the middle of the field. Earl Bennett had 5 catches for 95 yards and a TD against them.

Grade: C-

SPECIAL TEAMS: DeSean Jackson had a costly fumble on a first-half punt return that set up a Chicago touchdown. A fake punt in the fourth quarter failed miserably. Eagles coverage units did a pretty good job of containing lethal return man Devin Hester, with the exception of a 19-yard punt return early in the fourth quarter.

Grade: D

OVERALL: Another blown lead. Another game where their run defense let them down. Another game where turnovers killed them. Get the defibrillator.

Grade: D
