Bears Edge Eagles in First Preseason Game

Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Zach Miller caught two touchdown passes and 
the  Chicago Bears upended  the Philadelphia Eagles,  34-28, in the preseason 
opener for both teams. 

Jay  Cutler threw a 10-yard pass to Miller in the back of the end zone late in 
the first quarter, and Miller caught another touchdown pass from Jordan Palmer 
in the second. 

Cutler  finished with 85 yards on 9-of-13 passing for the Bears, whose backups 
also  proved effective.  Palmer completed 8-of-11 throws for 104 yards with an 
interception, while Jimmy Clausen tossed for two scores. 

Clausen  connected with Chris Williams and Micheal Spurlock for TDs after Matt 
Barkley's  scoring strike  to David Fluellen had given the Eagles a 28-17 lead 
early in the second half. 

Philadelphia  started  slow with  Nick Foles  getting picked  off twice in his 
three  possessions under  center. Mark Sanchez was an efficient 7-of-10 for 79 
yards and led the Eagles' second-team offense to 14 points courtesy of Matthew 
Tucker's two touchdown runs. 

Josh Huff returned a kickoff 102 yards for a TD in the loss.
