The Eagles face the Bears in week nine of the regular season. The Eagles have dominated so far, holding the Bears to just nine yards of total offense. The Birds lead 12-0 at the half, here's what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:

First Half Offensive MVP

TE Zach Ertz: Ertz is having his best game of the season so far, finishing the half with 72 yards and a touchdown. QB Carson Wentz and Ertz connected on a 25-yard touchdown completion to put the Eagles up 12-0.

First Half Defensive MVP

DE Brandon Graham: Brandon Graham has played a great first half, finishing with three tackles and a sack. Graham has played a huge part in holding the Bears to just eight rushing yards.

Who Needs To Step Up

WR Alshon Jeffery. Jeffrey has struggled so far, only catching two passes on four targets. Jeffery had a big drop on third down that ended the Eagles drive. If the Eagles are going to run away with this game, Jeffery is going to need to make some plays against a strong Bears defense.

Who To Watch Out For

LB Khalil Mack. Mack has been one of the most dominant defensive players over the past few seasons and has made some great plays today. If the Eagles want to continue their dominance they’re going to need to slow down Mack in the second half.
