Bears Take on Red Hot Eagles in Philadelphia Sunday

It'll be a matchup of second overall picks at different points in their career Sunday when the Bears visit the Eagles at Philadelphia's Lincon Financial Field at noon.
Carson Wentz was the second overall pick in the draft a year ago for Philadelphia and has exploded in his second full season. He's 25 touchdowns to only five interceptions and has led the surprising Eagles to a 9-1 overall mark and they sit in the drivers seat in the NFC East and in the NFC.
Meanwhile, Mitch Trubisky is the second overall pick from last year's draft and his season has been about development and finding silver lining in a frustrating year for him and the Bears.
Trubisky needs 12 yards for 1000 yards and has thrown only four touchdowns and two interceptions. 
The Bears were beaten by the Lions last Sunday 27-24 on a last second field goal in Chicago. 
Chicago starts a stretch Sunday with four of their final six games on the road. 
Kickoff is noon central time Sunday.
