Who's picking the Eagles?

I'll be back again this evening for a live, in-game chat during the Eagles-Bears matchup. In the meantime, here's a look at who the experts are picking in tonight's game: Les Bowen of the Daily News likes the Eagles, 16-12. The DN's Paul Domowitch picks the Eagles, 24-13. SI.com's Peter King has the Bears in a 19-17 victory: I don't like the fact that Philly's two most important players feel like they just got hit by a truck. Looks like Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook will play, but at what percentage of goodness? The Bears are better than 1-2-you can point to about six plays in the Tampa Bay and Carolina losses, and if they make any two of them, they're 3-0-and they'll show up in all their brutishness Sunday night, ready to play a desperate game. Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com goes with the Bears, 20-17: The Eagles are hurting and now take to the road to face a Bears team that has lost two tough games in a row. That's a tough spot. The Bears will be able to shut down the Eagles if Brian Westbrook can't go. Chicago needs this game in the worst way, more than the Eagles, and they get it. Three of six CBSSports.com experts pick the Eagles. CBSSports.com's Harmon Forecast has the Eagles, 23-19. Four of six FoxSports.com experts pick the Eagles. Four of five members of ESPN's pre-game show have the Birds winning. Seven of eight ESPN experts go with the Eagles. All eight USA Today experts pick the Birds.
