Eagles run wild, Bears can't clinch

PHILADELPHIA — With little on the line until next week, Chip Kelly didn't rest his starters until they finished routing the Bears.

Nick Foles passed for two touchdowns and LeSean McCoy ran for two as the Eagles denied Chicago a chance to clinch the NFC North Division.

With the Cowboys winning earlier, Philadelphia knew this coming Sunday's game at Dallas — moved into prime time — would settle the NFC East. The Bears could have not only clinched the division but also the No. 3 seed but now must tie or beat Green Bay this week to win the North.

Foles was 21-of-25 for 230 yards, and set a franchise record with a completion percentage of 84.0. In nine starts, he has 25 touchdown passes and two interceptions. He was replaced by Michael Vick midway through the fourth.

By that time, Eagles fans were chanting: "We want Dallas!"
