Your Eagles NFL playoff TV viewing guide for Sunday

In addition to needing a win over the Washington Redskins, the defending Super Bowl champions have to hope the Chicago Bears can beat the Minnesota Vikings. Beyond the storylines that exist (with the Vikings and Bears being NFC North Rivals) and the Vikings getting shellacked by the Eagles in the NFC Championship, last season there lies another, more insidious connection, one that was asked about by reporters today and that drew a comment from the coaches of the above-mentioned teams.

The Bears will go on to host the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles in the wildcard round of the National Football League playoffs. "There's no button you can push or hours you can put in to suddenly snap your fingers and guarantee a win", Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins said.

"We're going in there really focused", Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky said.

The game between the Vikings and Bears was flexed to 3:25 this Sunday, which means that the Bears might have "nothing" to play for as their game begins (assuming the Los Angeles Rams win their match-up).

Trubisky has made a big jump statistically in 13 games this season after playing in 12 as a rookie previous year under former coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. The thing is, none of us truly know that. Their long-shot scenario is starting the postseason in Los Angeles, if they lose to the Bears and the Rams and Eagles lose, too. And with the Rams steamrolling the 49ers on the West Coast, the Bears basically were locked into the NFC's No. 3 seed well before sundown. Prior to Week 16, when Philadelphia upset the Houston Texans to stay alive in the Wild-Card race, Pederson told reporters he'd spoken with Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich, the team's former offensive coordinator, about the AFC South leaders.

The Rams clinch the No. 2 seed and first-round bye with a win/tie vs. the Niners or a Bears loss/tie vs. the Vikings.

The Bears said they're not seeking payback for Vikings safety Harrison Smith, whose hit on a sliding Trubisky late in the game in Chicago on November 18 drove the second-year quarterback's throwing shoulder into the ground and wound up sidelining him for the following two games. "This could be our last game or we can go forward".

"It's to all of us", Nagy said.

Remember that nasty hit by Vikings' safety, Harrison Smith?

"Just talking to him throughout the week, I feel pretty good with him playing most of the game", Nagy said.

Typical/Vintage Zimmer. While he says he doesn't care, rest assured that this is the flawless bulletin board material that he will use to hype up a team that you'd assume was already dialed to 11 in terms of hype for Sunday's match-up. One play after Dalvin Cook ran for two yards on fourth-and-1, Cousins found receiver Stefon Diggs for a two-yard touchdown.
