What a happy Thanksgiving for Eagles fans. Thanks to so many people involved in this (so far) remarkable season. Special thanks to those charitable Cleveland Browns for relinquishing the 2nd pick in the 2016 draft. Without the Browns none of this would be possible.

Referee: Walt Coleman.The Eagles are 10-9 all-time in games refereed by Coleman, most recently a win against Dallas in last year’s season finale. The Bears are 4-9. Coleman might best be known as the referee for the 2002 AFC playoff game in which an apparent Tom Brady fumble was ruled an incomplete pass. The call was correct. The rule, overturned in 2013, was flawed. Coleman’s take on the play is really interesting. Check out this YouTube clip of an ESPN segment from 2012.
Line: Eagles -13.5. Over-under: 44.
An Eagles win would: Give the Birds a five-game lead in the NFC East with five to go. They still would not have mathematically clinched, but not even the ’64 Phillies could blow this.
What’s next: The Eagles will hit the road for their next three (Seattle, L.A. Rams, N.Y. Giants). The game at Seattle will be Sunday night, Dec. 3.
Did you know? The Eagles’ 320 points are the most they’ve had after 10 games in the 85-year history of the franchise. … Kendall Wright’s 29 receptions are tops among all Bears wide receivers. Seeing as how Chicago also has played 10 games, that’s pretty pathetic. … Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, a former Bear, has four touchdown catches over the last three games. … The Eagles beat the Bears in Chicago last year in Week 2. It was the first road start for Carson Wentz, who is 11-2 at home in his career and 5-8 away from the Linc.
