Philadelphia Eagles are the best team in the league when it comes to zone-read runs

The Eagles run the zone read better than any team in the NFL and it’s not close. The Eagles have rushed for 1,479 yards and nine touchdowns on zone-read runs, 886 yards and five touchdowns more than any other team.

There have been seven games in the NFL this season in which a team ran for 100 yards on zone-read rushes, with the Eagles accounting for six of them.  It helps to have a stud like LeSean McCoy.

LeSean McCoy has more yards (1,017) and touchdowns (five) on zone-read rushes than any team this season.

Opposing teams have run 12 zone-read rushes against the Bears this season, the fewest any team has faced.

The Bears have been far from impressive in limited action against the zone read. Opposing teams are averaging 9.1 yards per rush on such runs, with only the Lions allowing more (10.1).

Expect the Eagles to run the ball heavily this week against the Bears who are playing a relatively new linebacker core.
