Philadelphia Eagles claim final NFC spot with help from Chicago Bears

Mitch Trubisky Revealed His Weekly Preparation Regimen and DEAR GOD

He is the co-host of "Dickerson & Hood" on the ESPN Radio national network, and is heard in Chicago on ESPN 1000.

Before their playoff push, the Bears are wrapping up their regular season against the Vikings in Minnesota Sunday.

After spending the majority of the last two decades trying to keep up with Green Bay, the Vikings have overtaken the Packers only to have their other primary rival the Bears surge to the top of the division.

Indeed the Bears did so, defeating the Vikings 24-10 and knocking them out of the postseason.

Eagles: Play at Chicago in a wild-card game next weekend.

Bears head coach Matt Nagy said the Bears will let it rip in Minnesota, but with one caveat.

The Bears have every reason to be confident heading into Week 17.

That is not going to happen. "Why should I change?" "It's a supporters and journalists game, but we can not be a part of it". Pep Guardiola asserts he has no intention of changing City's style of play, following a hard period of results .

Nick Foles has meant as much to the Eagles as any one man has meant to his franchise's reputation this past year, so surely Philly can find it in their hearts this holiday season to cobble together some cash for the man? Chicago clinched the NFC North and will earn a first-round bye with a Rams loss.

Redskins punter Tress Way threw a 7-yard pass to Jehu Chesson on a fake punt on fourth-and-2, but Johnson followed with three straight incomplete passes and Way had to punt. Their long-shot scenario is starting the postseason in Los Angeles, if they lose to the Bears and the Rams and Eagles lose, too.

As the No. 3 seed, the Bears shouldn't be afraid to play anyone at home, especially with their defense. Cook was able to get the first down on the next play. "That's what we're talking about, but we want to make sure we are doing the right thing for them, for us, and for our future".

If the Vikings win, the most likely scenario would be a return trip to Soldier Field for a playoff game on January 5 or 6.

But if they're not, that team is the Eagles. Drawing the defending Super Bowl champions will be a hard task next weekend - though the status of Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who left Philadelphia's win over Washington with a chest injury, will be worth monitoring this week.

More importantly: The Bears move on to the playoffs having won nine of their last 10 games.
