Happy in Philly, Alshon Jeffery downplays facing former team

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Alshon Jeffery guaranteed his team would win the Super Bowl after the Chicago Bears finished 3-13 last season.

"I never said a team, though," Jeffery explained with a smile.

His bold prediction still could come true because the standout receiver left the Bears to join the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year contract in free agency. The Eagles (9-1) have the best record in the NFL while the Bears (3-7) are headed nowhere again.
