Cornerback Xavier Rhodes among Vikings' inactives against the Bears

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes among Vikings' inactives against the Bears

Philadelphia trails the Minnesota Vikings by a half-game for the NFC's second wild-card spot. That, coupled with their 24-0 win over the Washington Redskins, gave the Eagles the sixth and final playoff spot in the NFC. Nick Foles leading these Eagles anywhere near a second Super Bowl, could place Wentz legacy and career here in Philadelphia in jeopardy. There's no magic formula. Both teams were eliminated before the 2011 finale, too, when the Bears stopped a five-game losing streak to finish at.500.

Samantha Rivera reports from Halas Hall, keeping you in the loop on what you need to know for the Chicago Bears' week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. But that's also why the Vikings won't be the Bears' opponent - they're just not that good of a team. "I told them, 'You set out to get yourself into the tournament.' They've done that and we just got another opportunity next week". For that to occur, the Vikings, Eagles and Rams all would have to lose Sunday. The Bears have already clinched the NFC North but can clinck a first-round bye if they beat the Vikings and if the Rams lose to the 49ers. It had its fifth 100-yard rushing game of the season last week against Detroit, with no turnovers. They would get the No. 5 seed and a first-round game at Dallas with a win and a loss by Seattle at home to Arizona. "Like I've said a bunch of times, this training staff has been really great in keeping me as prepared as possible to play physically, and credit to them".

Credit Bears coach Matt Nagy for setting the proper tone.

"We'll have to do the best we can do to hold up and protect the football", Cousins said.

Mack and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks helped make the previous matchup, a 25-20 victory by the Bears, miserable for Minnesota's offensive line. Zimmer said he didn't want the season to be lost.

But if they're not, that team is the Eagles.

"I remember the feeling driving away from the game", Cousins said Wednesday, Dec. 26.
