Eagles vs. Bears early wildcard preview

Eagles vs. Bears early wildcard preview

The defending champs are in the dance.

Vikings: Stay home for the playoffs for the third time in five seasons under Zimmer.

If not, the Vikings (8-6-1) would be the likeliest opponent for the Bears (11-4) in the wild-card round next week. Nate Sudfeld stepped in and finished the game. Initial reports say Foles may have bruised his ribs but is believed to be "OK".

"This is huge", said Nagy, who contrasted the postgame locker room scene after the Week 1 loss to the Packers with Sunday's.

"I remember the feeling driving away from the game", Cousins said Wednesday, Dec. 26. "I feel like we'll get this thing situated, and my goal is to be out there and play".

And also to the health of the man he replaced, Carson Wentz. Before his exit, he tied the league's all-time consecutive completions record (25).

Well, finally, these rivals have entered their 2018 season closer in the right positions for a tension-filled game on Sunday. Philadelphia's defense held Washington to only 89 yards total offense. Washington went 0-for-9 on third down.

The Eagles dominated the Redskins, controlling the ball for 43:19.

Up next for the Bears are the Eagles at Soldier Field in the wildcard round.

If Minnesota loses to the Bears and misses out on the postseason, Vikings fans will have 84 million reasons to be upset. Loud chants of "Let's go, Bears!" broke out as Chicago got deep in Minnesota's red zone midway through the fourth quarter.

Dickerson covers the Chicago Bears for ESPN's NFL Nation. The celebration began in earnest once the clock hit zero. "We're in this party".

The Eagles will now face the Bears, who defeated the Vikings 24-10 in Week 17.

The Vikings offensive line didn't play their worst game of the season, but they didn't play their best either.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receiver Adam Thielen argued after Cousins threw a third-down incompletion. Chicago converted on eight of 13 third downs, including the Bears' final touchdown drive in the fourth quarter that ate up over nine minutes and included four third-down conversions. They buried the Vikings, and in the process, they picked up their fifth division win of the year after winning just three NFC North games under John Fox from 2015 to 2017.

The only problem for the Eagles is that, depending on how the Los Angeles Rams are doing against the San Francisco 49ers, the Bears might not have much motivation to win, seeing as though a Rams win would prevent Chicago from gaining a first-round bye.
