Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy wouldn’t get into specific predictions for what he, the NFL’s leading rusher, might do against the Bears’ run defense, with or without Lance Briggs.

But he can turn on a video projector, and “seeing teams gash’em, automatically that light bulb lights up in your head like, ‘Wow, we can get the running game going,’” McCoy said.

That light bulb probably is something in the 100-300-watt range. Top-10 running backs (expanded to 11 since Matt Forte is No. 3) have generally had their ways with the Bears’ run defense — which is part of the reason they are top-10 running backs.

No. RB Avg/gm vs. Bears
1 LeSean McCoy 95.9 ??
2 Adrian Peterson 93.9 100/211
5 Alfred Morris 95 95
7 Eddie Lacy 79.1 150
10 DeMarco Murray 81.4 146
11 Reggie Bush 78.3 139/105
