Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Chandler was hit hard on a fourth-quarter incompletion, and Henry Burris took over for the final two possessions. Henry was 1-of-6 for 28 yards, an interception and a sack. On just two carries, Burris led the Bears in rushing with 19 yards. Chandler said he had the wind knocked out of him. ...

They beat Miami 13-7 on Sept. 10, 2000.
