PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Around 60,000 fans packed Lincoln Financial Field Sunday night to watch the Eagles battle the Bears.

Before the game, fans were fired up, despite knowing The Eagles have to play the Cowboys next week for the NFC East Championship.

“We know tonight is kind of meaningless. We have to win in Dallas next week and that’s the big thing,” this fan said.

Next week’s game was on the mind of many fans, who offered their opinion on what needs to be done to win in Dallas:

“One thing you need to do is be aggressive and the Eagles are sometimes not aggressive. They have to keep putting the power on, stop running the clock out.”

“Well that high power offense just has to score, because Dallas doesn’t have that much of a defense.”

And one fan adds the fans expectations seem to change as the season goes on.
