NFL Power Rankings Week 15 2022, Chicago Bears VS Philadelphia Eagles
Chicago Bears Form
Home-field advantage has counted very little for the Chicago Bears recently, having lost their last four rounds at the Lambeau Field. They also slipped to a 19-28 defeat to the Green Bay Packers last time out, leaving them 1-9 in their past 10 games overall.
The Chicago Bears continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 23.0 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 20.8 points, this suggests the offensive unit is consistent. The art of defending isn’t something the Chicago Bears excel in though. By allowing 25.6 points per game, their defense has been below average compared to the rest of the league this year.
In 2021, the Chicago Bears went 6-11 to end up third in the NFC North and out of playoff contention. They hoped to return to the NFL postseason this year, but that is no longer possible as the 3-10 hosts are now eliminated.
Philadelphia Eagles Form
Form is really looking good for the Philadelphia Eagles after claiming a 22-48 win against New York Giants last week. The victory extended their winning streak to four matches, improving their regular season record to 12-1. They are also 6-0 on the road.
A virtuoso offense is the first step to winning games on the road, which the Philadelphia Eagles have covered. In 13 rounds this season, the offensive unit has put up a solid 29.7 points on average. The defense, on the other hand, hasn’t been as effective in putting the brakes on opposing offenses of late. In the past five outings, 22.6 points have been lost on average. This is more than the away team usually gives up, having allowed a decent 19.1 points per game this season.
The Philadelphia Eagles are touted as a potential Super Bowl challenger for this season. While it’s still early days, things are going according to plan so far. The visitors have wrapped up a spot in the playoffs and hold the first seed in the NFC Conference.
