CHICAGO -- It'll be interesting after the game to ask about the way Philadelphia's defense has stiffened -- or Chicago's offense has relaxed -- here in the third quarter.

With 44 seconds remaining in the third quarter, Bears quarterback Kyle Orton has more turnovers (three) than completions (one) since halftime. Overall, he has completed one of five passes for four yards after throwing for 174 yards in the first half.

From a very amateur view, it looks like the Eagles are mixing up their coverages. Orton has held the ball much longer in the pocket than he did in the first half, contributing to two of the three turnovers.
