Bears Defeat Eagles 30-24 on 'Monday Night Football'

Nick Laham/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- The Bears have launched themselves into the playoff hunt in the NFC, while the Eagles are spiraling out of it.

Led by running back Matt Forte (133 rushing yards on 24 carries) and quarterback Jay Cutler (208 passing yards and two touchdowns), the Bears rallied to score 10 points in the fourth quarter -- edging the Eagles 30-24 on Monday Night Football.

It was the fourth game this season that the Eagles have led in the fourth quarter and lost. The Eagles also lead the NFL with the most turnovers in the red zone, and have been outscored by 36 points in the fourth quarter, the worst mark of any team in the NFL.

With the win, the Bears are 5-3 and now hold the sixth and final playoff spot. The Eagles meanwhile, are now just 3-5 and are tenth in the playoff standings.
