Finally, a Bears-Vikings finale in Minnesota with meaning

As the third seed they'll head to Chicago to face the Bears in the wild-card round on Sunday at 4:40 p.m. on NBC.

Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel took a step toward the inside of the field near the Vikings' 35-yard line, then broke toward the left sideline at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

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.

Cousins also threw two interceptions against the Bears, whose 27 interceptions lead the National Football League by a wide margin. Tom Brady completed an up-and-down regular season by completing 24 of 33 passes for 250 yards and four touchdowns.

It was win or go home for the Eagles and the Vikings in Week 17.

Is Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky ready for the playoffs? 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 defense generally kept the Bears offense in check until they exhausted in the fourth quarter and gave up another backbreaking touchdown run to Jordan Howard.

How Trump’s Iraq visit sounded like a campaign rally
Much of the US campaign in Syria has been waged by warplanes flying out of Qatar and other locations in the Middle East. The strike destroyed the tunnel entrance and killed four IS fighters, according to the US military in Baghdad.

In two games with former quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefansky running the offense, the Vikings have rushed for a combined 320 yards.

"Maybe I've done that, we'll have to see", he said.

We don't know when the games will be in 2019, but we do know who and where they will play their opponents. In any analysis of their performance, the defense they were going against must be considered-it's a very good one.

Of course, on paper, the Vikings would have been the easiest team for the Bears to play in the first round. Offensive lineman Kyle Long could help in that effort; the three-time Pro Bowler was activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game. The more you give you confidence to a visiting team, the fast and greater it builds. But make no mistake: If White plays a role in next weekend's playoff game, something has gone terribly wrong.

Nagy declared, on more than one occasion throughout the week, the Bears were not content to simply go through the motions just because they had already locked up - at a minimum - the No. 3 seed. "Teams have been playing us in a lot of zone, taking away the big plays, so it felt good to finally get a big play". Vikings linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Wilson struggled to come off blocks and had a hard time stopping Jordan Howard.
