EAGLES’ JEFFERY SALIVATING TO FACE HIS FORMER TEAM, DA’ BEARS!

By Lewis Gould

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has an extra incentive this Sunday against the Bears.

Coming off his best game as an Eagle, Jeffery’s motivation is that he will be facing his former club.

Last week against Dallas, Jeffery was targeted six times, catching four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. His lone score was an impressive catch on a fourth-and-five play.

The wide receiver gained 2.58 yards per route run in Week 11, and his 86.7 overall grade was the second best mark among receivers.

This week, the Bears will use a committee approach in an attempt to slow down Jeffery.

Prince Amukamara is the team’s highest-graded cornerback this season (78.4) and allowed three catches on four targets for 40 yards last week against Detroit.

Kyle Fuller has been less effective, averaging 8.6 coverage snaps per reception (69th among cornerbacks) and allowing 1.64 yards per coverage snap (fourth worst).
