Bears make it four wins in a row

The Chicago Bears looked sharp in their win over the Philadelphia Eagles, 31-26.

The Bears' Matt Forte rushed for 117 yards Sunday and Quarterback Jay Cutler threw 14-of-21 passes for 247 yards.

Coach Lovie Smith says this is the time of year the team needs to come together to prepare for a run for the playoffs.

"We knew that this was a big game and whether we've gotten enough respect or not, none of that really matters, either," Smith said. "Just us, with our schedule, we get a chance to play the best - supposedly the best - teams out there, and of course they stood up to them."

The Bears have now won four in a row. Next up, the Bears are in Detroit Sunday to play the Lions.
