Eagles preparing for tough test from Chicago

Eagles preparing for tough test from Bears

PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles and Bears will play at Lincoln Financial Field in Sunday night primetime in a showdown between the NFC East and North divisional leaders.

The Eagles five-game winning streak came to an end Sunday, when they let Minnesota run all over them.  The Birds fell to 8-6 with the 48-30 setback.  They still remain in first place in the NFC East, a game ahead of the Cowboys.  

The Birds received some good news Thursday, as cornerback Brandon Boykin cleared the NFL's concussion tests and returned to practice.  He is expected to be in the lineup Sunday night.

And they will need him. 

Chicago has a number of skill players on offense that can do damage.  Chip Kelly says the Eagles defense will have their hands full.

Should Dallas lose to Washington earlier in the day, the Eagles would clinch the division. Kelly says he'll play his starters regardless.
