It's not just you - the Bears and Philadelphia really have played each other an awful lot despite being in different divisions. They've crossed paths in the regular season the past four seasons, and each game has been decided by five points or fewer. Sounds like a perfect recipe for a rivalry. As the Bears (4-3) and Eagles (3-4) prepare to bump heads again Monday, here's what their most recent meetings have brought to the table.   Nov. 28, 2010: Bears 31, Philadelphia 26 Key ingredient: Validation The Bears had their share of doubters leading up to this game despite...

A cynic would describe Sunday's Bears game against Jacksonvile in two words: trap game. The symptoms are there: the Bears get hyped for a "Monday Night Football" road showdown, they drop 34 points on the NFL's top-ranked defense, then they go into Jacksonville and lay an egg. Maybe. Fortunately for the Bears, they're coached by Lovie Smith, who is 8-2 on Monday nights and 7-2 the game after. Let's look at some of Smith's finest moments on Mondays and the games that followed.   Oct. 16, 2006: Bears 24, Arizona 23 Oct. 29, 2006: Bears 41, San Francisco 10 ...

Orange you glad the Bears wore those jerseys Sunday? Ugh. Sorry. For the second time this season, the Bears donned their orange jerseys, and the results were about as good as they could have hoped. So, what how did orange help the Bears? Let us count the ways.   Orange Julius Bears defensive end Julius Peppers forces a Calvin "Megatron" Johnson fumble with a vicious pro wrestling-style clothesline on the Lions' first drive. Brian Urlacher recovers, and the Bears jump out to a 7-0 lead on a Matt Forte touchdown run four plays later.

Sometimes I wish I didn't know anything about football. Because if I didn't, I might have enjoyed Sunday's two-point disaster against Detroit. I might even be smiling now, just like the bartender who served me and my friends during the game. For instance, when Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall hooked up on the opening drive for three straight completions capped by a 32-yard pass and a 7-0 lead, the chipper bartender said, "We got a goal! Uh, a touchdown!" And then she laughed and said, "I don't watch a lot of sports.

Thanks to all who entered Volume 4 of RedEye's Bears Trivia Challenge! Here's the question again, followed by the answer: Question: What's the total length of field goals made by the Bears in the 2010 and 2011 seasons in nautical miles? Answer: We'll spare you the details of all Robbie Gould's field goals the past two seasons. Just know that the combined length in 2010 was 2,892 feet, and in 2011 it was 3,750 feet, or 6,642 feet total. Divide that by 6,076.12 (the number of feet in a nautical mile)

Sure, several key Bears were injured last week. But there were still upbeat entering Sunday. They simply had to deal with Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch and a Seattle team that had beaten them the past two regular-season meetings at Soldier Field. However, when the dust settled, the Seahawks emerged with a 23-17 overtime win, relegating the Bears to a first-place tie with Green Bay. Who played like a beast and who ended up a bust?   BEAST Sidney Rice The former Minnesota Viking hauled in one clutch catch after another, including the game-winning touchdown in overtime.

Jay Cutler had a rough game last week against Green Bay - his 28.2 passer rating was the second worst of his Bears career. But the NFL has a short memory, and you're only as good (or bad) as your last game. What will Bears fans be saying Monday? RedEye takes a look at some of Cutler's worst games as a Bear and his follow-up performances.   THE BAD WEEK 2009, Week 1: Green Bay 21, Bears 15 Rating: 43.2 The Jay Cutler Hype Machine began in September 2009 with a nationally-televised loss to the Packers.

The Bears and Detroit Lions love to hate each other. The last time they faced off, the Lions' Ndamukong Suh ripped off Jay Cutler's helmet, Detroit's Nate Burleson shoved Tim Jennings out of bounds and Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford grabbed D.J. Moore by the helmet and threw him to the ground. The fact these teams dislike each other is nothing new, of course, and the stakes were high enough to keep things chippy Monday. The Bears were trying to hold on to first place in the NFC North, and the Lions were attempting to revive their playoff hopes.

Every week, NFL teams' toughness is examined. Even though the Bears looked like one of the best teams in the league and were playing struggling Carolina on Sunday, question marks remain. How would the Bears play after a short week? Were Jay Cutler's sore ribs feeling OK? Could Cam Newton recover from general ineptitude? As it turns out, a Robbie Gould field goal as time expired was enough to boost the NFC North-leading Bears to 6-1. "To get out with a 'W,' we're happy, but anytime you win there's things to improve on, just like a loss, so we've got to keep getting better," said Cutler, who was booed several times by...
