LeSean McCoy called the Soldier Field sod the worse he's ever seen. But he wasn't blaming that for the Eagles' loss.
''It was terrible. I've never played an a field that bad,'' said McCoy, who rushed for 53 yards on 10 carries. ''But that's no excuse. Philly's terrible. It was terrible on both sides. It was not the cause for us not getting in the end zone.''
Eagles cornerback Joselio Hanson slipped while trying to stay with Johnny Knox while the Bears receiver was making an inside-out cut late in the first quarter. As a result, Knox was wide open for a 20-yard touchdown pass from Cutler that staked the Bears to a 14-3 lead.
On several other occasions, Eagles players lost their footing.
