The loss for the Eagles is their worst since last season's Super Bowl win, as they dropped to 4-6, but still sit two games back of the Washington Redskins. Carson Wentz completed just 19 of his 33 passes for 156 yards, his worst outing since returning from his torn ACL earlier in the year. He was intercepted three times on the day, twice by Marshon Lattimore and once by Chris Banjo. Josh Adams' 28-yard touchdown run in the second quarter proved to be the only score of the night for the Eagles.
Meanwhile, the Saints continue to dominate, as they have outscored their opponents, 99-21, over the past two weeks following a blowout of the Cincinnati Bengals on the road. They totaled 546 yards as a team and reached 40 points for the sixth time this season. Kamara did contribute 71 yards and caught a touchdown pass from Brees in the win. The Saints will play host to the Atlanta Falcons on Thanksgiving night, while the Eagles will return home to host the New York Giants.
Another first-place team that is attempting to run away with the division is the Chicago Bears, who helped themselves majorly on Sunday night. They once again relied on their defense to hold off the Minnesota Vikings at home, 25-20. Khalil Mack led the defensive charge with a sack and a fumble recovery, while Eddie Jackson returned an interception for a touchdown on the night. The win for the Bears gives them a 1.5-game lead on the Vikings for the top spot in the NFC North.
Chicago now sits at 7-3, looking for their first division title since 2010, as they have now won consecutive games against divisional opponents after dropping the previous 10 meetings. They got this win despite Mitchell Trubsiky struggling to find his normal groove, yet his team still held a 308-268 advantage in total yards and 34:29-25:31 advantage in time of possession. They led by as many as 16 following Trubisky's lone touchdown pass to Adam Shaheen in the third quarter.
The Vikings attempted a rally late in the fourth, as Kirk Cousins found Aldrick Robinson for a touchdown, as a two-point conversion pulled them within eight. Although, Cody Parkey's 48-yard field goal sealed the win for the home team, who is 5-1 at Soldier Field this season. Chicago will hit the road for a Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions, while the Vikings will host the Green Bay Packers in a second straight Sunday night showdown.
