PHILADELPHIA - Knowing they have everything to play for next week, the Philadelphia Eagles never let up against a team with plenty on the line. wholesale nfl jerseys . Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy ran for two scores and the Eagles routed the Chicago Bears 54-11 on Sunday night in a matchup of first-place teams with opposite stakes. Instead of resting his starters for a winner-take-all game at Dallas next Sunday night, Chip Kelly didnt pull them until they finished whipping the Bears. "Were from Philadelphia and we fight," Kelly said. "If theres a game on, were playing." Chicagos loss sets up two win-or-go-home games for NFC division crowns next week. The Bears (8-7) came in needing a win to clinch the NFC North and secure the No. 3 seed while Philadelphia was just trying to stay healthy. But the Eagles (9-6) played like the team trying to lock up a playoff berth. Now, the Bears must tie or beat the Packers (7-7-1) at home next week to win the North. "We knew what was at stake and the opportunity we had and we didnt get it done," Bears coach Marc Trestman said. The Eagles (9-6) have to tie or beat the Cowboys (8-7) at Dallas next Sunday night to win the NFC East and complete a worst-to-first season under their rookie coach. Once Dallas rallied to beat Washington earlier in the day, the Eagles knew they were only playing for a No. 3 seed, that is, if they win the division. Still, Kelly played all his guys. "This is our job. They pay us to play ball," McCoy said. "The fans pay their hard-earned money to watch. As a player, we never think a game is meaningless." Foles was 21 of 25 for 230 yards, and set a franchise record with a completion percentage of 84.0. In only nine starts, Foles has 25 TD passes and two interceptions. He was replaced by Michael Vick midway through the fourth quarter. By that time, fans were chanting: "We want Dallas!" "The playoffs start one week early," Kelly said. "Thats how we approach it." McCoy, trying to become the first Eagles player to lead the NFL in rushing since Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren in 1949, ran for 133 yards and leads Kansas Citys Jamaal Charles by 189 going into the last game. Bryce Brown had 115 yards rushing, including a 65-yard TD run. The Eagles dominated from the start. Trent Cole sacked Jay Cutler to force a three-and-out on Chicagos first possession, and the Eagles went right down the field and scored when Foles hit Riley Cooper going across the back of the end zone on a 5-yard pass. Bradley Fletcher then forced Devin Hester to fumble after a 36-yard kickoff return and Cary Williams recovered at the Bears 39. Foles connected with Zach Ertz for 27 yards and McCoy ran in from the 1 to make it 14-0. Foles tossed a 10-yard TD pass to Brent Celek to make it 21-0 in the first. "It was fun to play," Foles said. "Thats what I cherish. I dont care about records." Cedric Thornton tackled Matt Forte in the end zone for a safety and a 26-3 lead in the third quarter. McCoy ran in from the 1 to make it 33-3. Chris Polk had a 10-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and Brandon Boykin returned an interception 54 yards for a score to make it 47-11. Chicagos only TD came when Cutler threw a 6-yard pass to Brandon Marshall on the final play of the third quarter. "I thought we had a good game plan," Cutler said. "We had good practices this week. Obviously we didnt play like it." Bears seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs returned to the lineup after missing seven games because of a fractured shoulder. He wasnt much help. The Eagles racked up 514 yards. The Bears had a chance to secure a division title because Green Bay lost to Pittsburgh and the New York Giants eliminated Detroit from playoff contention. NOTES: The Eagles had their 12th game of at least 400 yards of total offence. ... Cole had three of Philadelphias five sacks on Cutler, who hadnt gone down more than three times in a game previously this season. ... Eagles S Earl Wolff returned after missing four games with a knee injury, but left in the second quarter. ... Bears FS Chris Conte left in the first quarter after sustaining a concussion. ... The Cowboys beat the Eagles 17-3 in October. wholesale jerseys .

The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. A year ago he used the Latin American swing to test his recovery from an injured left knee. Nadal seemed to move freely against Montanes and wore a large, blue elastic bandage on his lower back as a precaution. "The back, well, its bothering me a little," Nadal said. "Right now its not hurting my game, but Im serving a little more gently than Im used to doing." Nadal said he pushed his recovery "a little bit" to play in Rio, after pulling out of the tournament the week before in Buenos Aires. "I am here and very happy being here," he said. "When you get an injury in the final of a Grand Slam, and you stop (playing/practicing) for 2 1/2 weeks, the comeback is not easy." Asked if nagging injuries might force an early retirement, the 27-year-old joked a bit before getting serious. "I cant predict the future, but my intention is to play many years," he said.

Government snipers killed at least 70 on Thursday. "Its sad. I cant do much, but just support," he said. "Whoever is right doesnt matter now when people are dying." Dolgopolov, who lives in the wealthy European enclave of Monte Carlo, said he was lucky to have the chance to make money playing tennis. "Obviously I would like the people in the (Ukraine) to feel better. If I could, I would change that," he said.
