Absolutely everything continues to go right for the Bears.
The Minnesota Vikings were 14-point underdogs at Philadelphia Tuesday night. I figured that game wasn't even worth following.
Minnesota wins 24-14. As a result, the Bears clinch no worse than the No. 2 seed and the accompanying first-round bye that goes along with it in the NFC playoffs.
Tuesday's outcome completes a perfect weekend for the Bears. They beat the Jets. The Packers slaughtered the Giants 45-17, thereby eliminating New York's hopes for a first-round bye. Now, down go the Eagles.
Believe it or not, the Bears can still get homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs if they beat the Packers next week AND Atlanta loses at home to Carolina AND New Orleans loses at home to Tampa Bay.
That scenario sounds really far-fetched, but hey, it seemed really far-fetched to think Minnesota was going to win at Philadelphia tonight.
It is the NFL and anything can happen from week to week.
